KATE SYLVESTER

Iconic New Zealand designer Kate Sylvester’s conceptual collections have embodied intelligence, witty irreverence, sophistication and modern femininity since the label’s inception in 1993. Ever the subtle subversive, Kate Sylvester plays off disparate references, seamlessly stitching sportswear with couture, pop culture with history, high art with punk rock. The resulting collections challenge nostalgic sensibilities with modern use of colour, cut and exclusive in-house prints. Her unpredictable yet elegant brand of quirk extends beyond an aesthetic to a culture and philosophy that is equally at home in department stores and boutiques internationally as it is in their own concept stores across their homeland and the Sydney flagship.
