Live Life in Full Bloom with PK 🌸

SPRING 2021:
Fashion Looks Preview

What clothes do you create in Fall 2020 when - to put it in plain terms - you don't know what people will be dressing for in Spring 2021?

How we dress affects how we feel and also is a reflection of the general mood. PK has chosen fabulous fashion-forward clothes and also brought back classic pieces that extend last year's comfort theme. You'll be seeing the PK Spring Fashion Shoot and Collections coming soon - uploaded on our website, blog, social media and displayed in our windows!

The Milan Collection - A Sneak Peak

PK presents you with some of the finest selections from the intimate and elegant sides of Italy - Naples & Milan. Our Missoni print is one we have particularly selected in our search for a strong design concept behind the styles and patterns, woven to perfection!

Re-discover the Joy of Shopping In-store

Well, for now it's still a little bit different. Three months have passed but you'll recognize the routine: pump sanitizer, mask and social distancing.

If you make a private shopping appointment, there will be no standing in line, and no masked shopper reaching for the sweater - the last one in your size - which you had your eye on! 
See something you like in the window? We're window-dressing the key looks available in-store so you can do an initial browse before entering. 


Check out some items from our collection online, screenshot the pieces you like, and then ask staff where they are to reduce time wandering around.

PK’s very own virtual fashion show

Welcome to Paris Fashion Week 

October 2020 Edition 

This season, like most fashion buyers, we were at home “virtual” reviewing the collections on our computer. This Fashion Week, less than half the fashion houses were there, and events were held outside in the Tuilleries Garden, under cover from the wind and rain.

The Vibe

The vibe in Paris matched the rainy, foreboding weather. Our colleague at Mode DEVERNOIS in  Paris said: "It is too quiet”.

We really wanted to be there in person because Paris is the city of fashion. It has the tradition and people behind the scenes to produce PK’s DEVERNOIS ready -to wear, which we tailor to the body in-house.


Let us show you what we are wearing on our October  “virtual” buying trip to Paris using the  Fall/Winter 2020 Collection which has just arrived in-store!

Long heat-insulating multicolor winter coat. 
Paired with a Burgundy faux-fur bucket hat and matching suede gloves. 

The Buyer 

On a buying trip we like to try on just about every style, work with the model, think about how the clothes feel on the body, and what we need from them this season

Python print with athletic leisure jacket and blood orange detailing

Our style of life is completely different now. It’s a more intimate relationship with what we wear because we don’t see so many people. We want to feel comfortable. For us, ”classy and comfortable” go hand-in -hand, and this applies to women of all ages. 

Cashmere cardigan over champagne silk chemise paired with a cream trousers and a multi-patterned scarf 

The Design

We are outdoors more.The varying shades of sunlit blue are chic and the silhouette is easy.

Long navy winter coat over sky-blue cashmere sweater.
Accessorized with a chic floral navy scarf. 

Paris is our dream destination. The French style is always fluid and feminine.  And as a fashion business during this transient time, we need to head for higher ground to survive. Paris is haute.

The Color

We all have certain colors that define our lives - grays, blacks and charcoals might make us sad-but they work as companion colors.You need them to create others which are more joyful.

Winter puffer vest over zig-zag buttoned up turtle neck sweater 
Paired with ruby red gloves and lipstick!

Au Revoir Paris!

The last day of Paris Fashion Week, the music is up, people are exhausted and the champagne is for all. But that’s not it, of course, for Paris Fashion Week is about the friendships forged, people from all over the world, Paris becomes a village of like minded people .

Although this marks the end of our fashion show...

It's time to reach for that

PK’s Fall/Autumn 2020 Collection

New Season Tour Guide 

Take a fashionable tour of this Fall’s finest collectibles. Feel free to touch and wear the art work...

The Blank Canvas 

At PK we enjoy a blank canvas…when it’s time to dress; a minimal styling approach.

The Theory of Color 

Fall season’s palette from Barcelona and Munich is decidedly festive.

Salzburg-based 2-in-1 Schneiders Coat

Salzburg-based Schneiders is dedicated to one thing and one thing only:

Crafting the perfect everlasting outerwear (and they nailed it!). This Fall’s dream is this 2 piece timeless coat/jacket. We hope you love this piece as much as we do.

Layering style technique

Layering like a professional artist requires experimentation...
Play with different prints - a cotton shirt from Berlin is a great place to start and play around with a cashmere sweater overlay from Naples.

Finally, enjoy a real art piece recently added to the PK  in store art collection. The painting on canvas celebrates a 60’s style and fashion icon driving a Fiat Cinquecento; a much loved car which is also an icon of Italian style. The painting has a big, happy retro mood which combines fashion with the art and style of an era.
