Kiko Kostadinov

Classless is Kiko Kostadinov’s third collection shown in London since graduating from Central Saint Martins in 2016, with the support of NEWGEN for the
second season.
The collection continues on Kostadinov’s exploration of a modern uniform and its relationship to class.
The mix of materials ranges. Double faced twills are paired with the fabric’s reverse side as a top or a trouser. Scottish knitwear with intarsia sleeve details accompanies jacket liners in Italian nylon and Japanese jersey.
The formulaic and clean collection is defined by Kostadinov’s subversive pattern cutting. The use of square armholes, pockets disguised as pleats and a two-way collar worn several ways throughout help give form to each piece in the range of garments.
A versatile waist bag with hidden fastenings appears on each of the 16 looks either on the right side of a jacket or the waist of the trousers.
The geometric jewellery is inspired by various pocket tools and accompanies each silhouette. Along with the set design, these formed shapes reference Spanish artist Pablo Palazuelo’s obsession with geometry.
