Fronté will introduce new winter pieces including the reversible kimono coat for the first time at The Design Museum Market 2017, organised by Designers/Makers, Design Museum and design junction with fifty designer/makers in the new Design Museum sited in Kensington in its stunning new building.
The reversible kimono coat is a reinterpretation of a historical kimono mixed with military style parka. The outside shell is made from 100% Italian wool and the reversible side of lining is made with bamboo silk. Fronté clothes are designed to last not only functionally but also aesthetically. Life is busy. Simplify the wardrobe with just a few pieces of elegant, minimal and versatile clothes that make you quietly stand out from the crowd year after year.
