Cruising Kookai’s New Collection Preview On Sydney Harbour

What is the perfect way to welcome in a Sydney summer?

New tan? New clothes? A whole day on the beach with a coconut in tow?

Combine all of the above and stick a hundred of Australia’s fashionita’s on board a cruise ship with the knowledge that they’ll see Danielle Vagner’s new Kookai line, and you get possibly, the best way to welcome in a fabulous Sydney summer.

Boarding from Kings St Wharf, Vagner displayed Kookai’s 16-17 spring-summer line, with deisgn’s that featured the best and brightest of the label.

Loved for it’s form-fitting materials and effervescent designs, the new collection, just like a great facelift, did not skew the image or integrity of the brand at all – but it did make it fresh and lively, once again.

In short, expect stripes, spaghetti straps and sophisticated sex appeal across the board.

Ranging from the formal-casual cocktail dress to the beach babe cover, a perfect mixed palette of peach tones and neutrals with nautical navy’s and creams strutted across the makeshift ship catwalk.

Pop-art pink worthy of an Andy Warhol portrait also made a splash across the deck, with playsuits, spaghetti strap midi’s and off the shoulder mini’s dawning the daring colour as the face of the new line.

No two pieces were the same. While similar elements featured in the line, subtle differences in each garment, like a blush coloured mini dress with a curve hugging spilt or an A-line finish, amplified the carefully curated collection and made each piece all the more irresistible.

What’s more, the way in which subtle hues were complemented by vibrant shades of fabric intoxicated every attendee with ideas of how to mix and match pieces for a look that constantly revamps itself.

With coconuts, fish tacos and cake pops smothered in meringue paste and dipped in chocolate-coated granola served to all aboard, the only thing fresher and more flavoured than the agave syrup in the tequila cocktails, is the #kookaicruise’s spring-summer line.

Either that, or Olena from the Bachelor downing a Carona.
