All you die hard fans of Kova & T know that the Oxy leggings are the best thing ever. Don’t they make you want to do a little role playing with your man with some stilettos and a feather whip? Grrrr! Their Fall 2008 line has more amazing items which include their signature streamlined denim jeans, dresses, cardigans, skirts and buttery soft t-shirts.
If you are not familiar with Kova & T, it is an amazing label started by two childhood friends with very distinct styles, Dasha Zhukova and Christina Tang, joined forces after not being able to find the perfect jeans. If you look at their jeans, there is no visible branding, only the faintest subtle embroidery on the side seams that blend naturally. The jeans are made of the highest quality Japanese denim and retain their shape even after multiple washes. In the sea of overly bling’d out denim, these stand out for their simplicity and fit.
Kova & T have two main focuses, high-quality and flattering fit. Inspired by their large circle of fashionista friends, style icons Carine Roitfeld, Vivenne Westwood, Emanuelle Alt and their surroundings (Russia, London, China and LA) the dynamic duo has established a line of clothing that has a cult following by the Hilton sisters, the Olsen Twins and a slew of A-list celebrities.
There is a great article by Andrea Cusick in Nylon Magazine’s August issue on Kova & T’s transformation of a pair of jeans into a denim jumper. They show you step by step instructions on how to DIY and the result is adorable! Get Nylon and go to the story “Jump To It” on page 80 to get a little crafty with your sewing abilities.
