KOKORO London - Best of 2015

It's only right to start with our beloved mascot, Blue, who sets the scene perfectly for KOKORO'S 2015 highlights.

Fun Fact: He is also our first Instagram Post.

A peak at the final touches before our launch on Connaught Street.

We were so happy when Dawn brought home some goodies to stock from Amelie Pichard, an accessories designer based in Paris who makes exquisite and nostalgic shoes and bags. 

The set up...

The first visual display at 19 Connaught Street, just before the doors were first opened!

What followed next was our website launch...

Adding to our in house collection, we partnered with our long time friend and neighbour ByWalid to have a selection of his beautiful Antique garments in our store at 19 Connaught Street.

The first of our adventures in Paris.

We ventured into Paris for Fashion week, where we showed our first Spring/Summer collection alongside our good friends By Walid. Keep a look out for the Imari Shirt and Harajuko skirt coming soon.

We are so grateful to our longtime friend Alex Reinke for gifting us one of his original drawing of a two tailed fox, to mark the beginning of our journey as KOKORO London. This is him shortly after we launched the limited edition print on our scarves and the Mr Kistune Kyoto Skirt.

During fashion week Hamish Bowles wore our Mr Kitsune Scarf to the Gucci show. 

We were so thankful to Alex for gifting us his drawing that we wanted to share this gift with you too. Thank you for the competition entries and your  continued support.

The calm before the storm, selecting the AW 15 fabrics, before they head to production. Can you spot the colours that made the set?

That time when the wonderful Sir Paul Smith came by 19 Connaught street to say hello to us. 

We were honoured to dress Karen Gill MBE & Maxine Benson MBE to present the NatWest everywoman awards.

We continued the celebration by collaborating with Every Woman to create a shopping experience in Connaught Street, where business women could shop, connect and enjoy a night out. Thank you to everyone who participated to make it a night we will never forget!

We are so grateful for our lovely customers, friends and the opportunities given to us in 2015. Here's to a fabulous 2016, filled with lots of love, growth and opportunities.
