MATCHESFASHION.COM is partnering with emerging design talent Chopova Lowena on the launch of an exclusive capsule collection for the AW19 season. The launch of the eight-piece exclusive capsule will be celebrated with a two-week installation in 5 Carlos Place, MATCHESFASHION.COM’s experiential retail destination.
Gaining a cult following for their distinctive designs, duo Emma Chopova and Laura Lowena started their namesake brand in 2018, following graduating from prestigious British design school Central Saint Martins. The brand uses colourful, patterned traditional Bulgarian fabrics, contrasted with edgy details such as wide leather belts, rock climbing carabiners and keyrings to create interesting and unique statement pieces. This capsule features the label’s signature kilt skirts in exclusive fabrics, alongside dresses and a wool coat.
