Edgy and unique French brand The Kooples have opened their first shop in Qatar at the prestigious Lagoona Mall in Doha, on Wednesday the 8th of July.
The French clothing brand is quickly expanding across the GCC region, with the Qatar opening following the most recent in Dubai Marina Mall and the shop-in-shop in Galeries Lafayette, The Dubai Mall. With five boutiques in the region The Kooples is fast becoming a key player in the GCC fashion market.
The Kooples draws inspiration from the riotous and turbulent relationships of most rock ‘n’ roll couples, most recently in their SS15 collection featuring Keith Richards and Anita Pallenberg, they combine destroyed chic with the freshest cuts. Effortlessly blending London style and French chic with American cool, the bluesy style of the 60’s and rock festival vibe of the 70’s, The Kooples have established themselves as a unique brand with a recognizable, distinguished French flair.
About The Kooples
Established in 2007, The Kooples (a spin on the word ‘Couples’ in French) effortlessly fuses both menswear and womenswear into their collection in an innovative and unique fashion, combining perfect cuts with meticulous attention to detail and precious fabrics.
An edgy and unique French brand, The Kooples allows for couples to go shopping together and swap their fashion finds. Created by three brothers, Alexander Elicha, Laurent Elicha and Raphael Elicha, they found inspiration in celebrity couples with an iconic style, such as Keith Richards & Anita Pallenberg, Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg, Patti Smith & Robert Mapplethorpe.
Ever since, The Kooples has founded its image on two concepts: couples and rock bands, aligning the brand with a style deeply rooted in the greatest couples of music history.
