Drawing from his first job as a patternmaker, and projects for Kenzo and Donna Karan International in Milan and Trent Nathan in Sydney, Carl Kapp started his own label in Australia with Autumn/Winter 2006. A native of South Africa, Kapp graduated in Clothing Design from Durban's Natal Technikon in 1990.
Each Kapp garment combines simplicity, quiet confidence, and a soft draping balanced with structured tailoring. Natural fibres like wool, silk, cotton and cashmere also feature. Pieces from Kapp's SS08 collection include Flower dress, and Half Moon dress (pictured above)
Carl Kapp stockists include: KJ's Laundry in London (74 Marylebone Lane, London W1U 2PW) and Becker Minty Woman in Sydney (Corner Macleay St & Greenknowe Ave, Potts Point, Sydney). The Carl Kapp online store opened in August 2008.
