We love our exclusive collection, Kobe Halperin: rich in luxurious textiles with an emphasis on crafted artisan details.
Kobi draws inspiration from the intricate details of his nostalgic past while giving today’s woman a modern and feminine look. His eponymous label is beautifully made and accessibly priced. His clothes bridge the gap between timelessness and trend, and are made from beautiful, luxe fabrications. Better yet, they are priced at an entirely affordable range. “I think that in today’s economy shopping habits have really changed. When consumers are buying clothes they want to feel good about their investment,” says Halperin. “As a designer, I want to give that to them. I want to design product with beautiful details and quality workmanship, and offer it at a price point that is competitive and accessible.”
Halperin was born in Israel and graduated from Shankar College of Engineering and Design in Tel Aviv. “I have always been mesmerized by details and workmanship. I have memories as a child running my fingers along the intricate framing and furniture in the house. At a really early age, I was involved with building my mother’s wardrobe; I loved going shopping with her. I was born in the ‘70s in Israel, and that was a time when people felt strongly about expressing themselves and fashion was a very serious thing. When I was 13 and about to celebrate my bar mitzvah, I went to an atelier with my mom to get her dress made. That was when I realized that my fashion obsession could be a job. In that moment I knew that I wanted to become a designer.”
"I FIND BEAUTY IN THE IMPERFECTIONS. WITH MY CLOTHES YOU CAN FEEL THAT SOMEONE TOUCHED THEM BY HAND. I LOVE TO CREATE PIECES THAT GIVE WOMEN A WAY TO EXPRESS THEMSELVES."
After 15 years in the industry the time was ripe to launch his own business, and Halperin partnered with Rothschild to create his namesake line. “After more than 15 years of working for other brands, I felt that the time was right,” he explains. “I wanted to stay true and loyal to the woman that I love to design for and I felt that the only way I could really do that was to connect to her through my own brand.”
