Currently Coveting: Old Khaki & Poetry Winter 2015 Fashion Collections!

A few weeks back I popped in to the sneak peek preview event for two of my favourite fashion brands…. Old Khaki & Poetry

The event was a showcase of all the upcoming winter fashion trends we can look forward to in stores for Winter 2015 and it was a feast for both the eyes and the mouth!!

I loved browsing the rails and learning more about the upcoming trends from the buyers for both ranges and the venue was beautifully decorated in line with the theme of Old Khaki’s Winter Woods and Poetry Woodlands, and the food table was piled high with indulgent comfort food that is so necessary in winter!

Here is a little bit more about what you can expect for Winter 2015 Fashion from each store…

Poetry launched their range of easy-wearing winter fashion with a warm seasonal palette, dominated by shades of burgundy but including classic winter colours such as plum, red and teal underpinned by neutrals such as camel, stone, milk, grey, navy, white and, of course, black.

In addition to a range of separates that include joggers, everyday sweat tops and leather jackets – one of this winter’s essentials – Poetry also showed several dresses, timeless cuts made new by moody floral prints and textured knits. Classics such as wrap and shirt dresses made a return, this time with subdued floral prints and made from soft fabrics designed to flatter as they drape.

Pleather shifts, sleeveless puffer jackets and quilted jackets with downy sleeves make it easy to coordinate the various separates, whether indoors or outdoors. When it comes to detailing and finishes, the range also gives more than a nod to this season’s key trends such as pleather trimming, back-zip detail, animal prints and shrug-like shapes.

“We took our inspiration from country living, something that ties in with the growing desire to return to a simpler life, one that is closer to nature,”

Poetry Ladieswear Buyer Mari Lochner.

As with all Poetry ranges, the focus is on femininity, luxury and comfort.

Poetry’s winter 2015 range will be available in-store from March 2015 and in

Old Khaki

Old Khaki has built up a loyal following among those who appreciate clothes that are authentic, well-made and affordable. Their new men’s and women’s ranges, referencnce The Great Escape, and are characterised by the wide open plains of the American West (including Navajo and Ikat designs), living on the land and the freedom to roam wherever the spirit moved you! These influences were translated into items such as denim, parka jackets, sherpa lined jackets and chunky knitwear.

“It’s all about hitting the road, no matter where. We therefore focused on reviving authentic classics and updating them for a modern lifestyle.”

Old Khaki’s ladieswear buyer, Lulenka Van Der Linde Theiss

The colour palette reflects Old Khaki’s focus on neutrals that can slot into any wardrobe. Olive, black, brown, navy, plum, berry, grey, milk, oatmeal and pink were predominant. The muted shades lend a softer appeal to fabrics such as brushed flannel, twill, denim and rayon.

Old Khaki also has an amazing range of accessories too including wool beanies, leather satchels and lace-up and biker boots!

Old Khaki’s winter range will be available in their stores and online shop at from March 2015.

Kathryn is a South African lifestyle blogger and mom of 2 who has been blogging daily for over 9 years! She writes about travel, health, beauty, fashion, decor and family... but not food (unless it's food she's eaten made by someone else) as she is a hopeless cook. She only wakes up early for 2 things... a red-eye flight to somewhere exotic and early morning game drives. She has just finished an extensive home renovation and would prefer to never see another box again. She's never met a chocolate or glass of bubbles that she didn't like!

  1. Kathryn,

    Please note that coveting is listed as one of the original sins and is a really bad idea for anyone wanting to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus died for our sins and we shouldn’t be using such language and behaviour in His name.


    1. Hi Jennifer – Yes I am aware of this…. My post title for this series is actually tongue in cheek as most of us struggle with covetous almost every day of our lives, I’m just acknowledging it… and then working on ways to deal with the feelings within myself… but that blog post wouldn’t be quite as fun!

  2. I have a feeling that Jesus is far too busy with ISIS and plane loads of people being deliberately crashed to take note of my wardrobe choices for winter – thanks for this blog, I love poetry but have never visited Old Khaki – soon to be rectified.

  3. The Old Khaki range makes me want to head for the mountains and snuggle in front of a warm fireplace. And that food…

    (Also, Jennifer: Relax. Colloquially “coveting” a gorgeous item is hardly an original sin.)
