KLEED resort wear presents its stunning SS19 collection with its customary flair, this time inspired by the vast Indian continent, where vivid colors and luscious silks come to life through the hands of talented local artists and community partnerships.
Under the umbrella concept Collaboration for Conservation, KLEED continues to blaze a trail in true sustainability: partnering with like-minded artists, designers, conservationists and businesses, to make an enduring, utterly meaningful contribution to their economies and lives.
An Indian Journey pays homage to the ancestral wooden block print techniques, to offer a dazzling take on KLEED’s trademark kimonos, such as the Black Peacock kimono, featuring the mythical peacock feathers. Colour-block kimonos also make their début, with contrasting cuff sleeves, livened by KLEED’s irresistible wild animal embroideries, ranging from snakes to tigers.
As a brand, KLEED is on a path to full sustainability – one step at a time. In our SS19 collection, for instance, we have introduced an Azo-free capsule collection, with eco-friendly dyes. We are also launching our recycled paper KLEED bags and labels, as well as a collector’s edition of KLEED 100% certified organic cotton bags, again printed with eco-friendly dyes, featuring a series of endangered animals, in order to keep conservation issues at the top of everyone’s agendas, throughout the world.
