Details from the La Garconne x Save Khaki Collection 

  

Kris Kim, founder of the minimalist-leaning boutique La Garconne, has an exceedingly sharp eye for simple yet elegant details. With each item stocked in the TriBeCa outpost and the pieces designed for La Garconne's in-house label, Moderne, Kim's clean, unfettered aesthetic is well represented across a covetable range of understated womenswear. 

For the boutique's collaboration with NYC menswear brand Save Khaki, the effect is the same, with Kim's functionalist forms merging well with David Mullen's equally pared-down focus. The pieces - Supima cotton sweats, oversized shirts, hardy coats and the like - are anchored around womanly takes on Save Khaki's classic chinos, offered at two lengths. 

Easy-wearing pieces aside, the tonal, muted effect of the collection is what stands out most. Pinks seem more like a nod to a sultry sunset, instead of a demure blush tone; deep blues bring to mind the lush pile of velvet, and the khaki pieces are washed and faded to the right finish. 

Below, a selection of pieces and details from the collaboration. Find the entire collection at La Garconne, and online here.
