The Beautiful Kaos winter collection is a representation of the Sydney streets and the lifestyle surrounding street life worldwide. The new collection is inspired by the lifestyle which designer, Paulo Brito has lived over the past year. A combination of yardage designs and screen prints are available in a range of styles including straight jacket zip-up hoods, casual dress pants, “max-relax” shorts and printed shirt designs.
The newspaper and pavement yardage prints are the key features of the new line that give the wearer an insider’s view and an understanding of the homeless life, without actually being homeless. Such as the pavement print, which aims to give the effect of street living and the newspaper print which gives the effect of being wrapped up in or sheltered by newspaper as homeless folks so often do.
“Fenton Street is one of the streets I grew up in as a young street rat,” says Paulo. “I am extremely excited about my re-invention of the straight jacket which comes complete with reverse zipper pockets and back loops giving the impression of a real life insane asylum straight jacket zip-up hood.”
Paul has also designed a jewellery line which consists of ‘BK world’ pendant medallions (925 sterling silver), ‘BK world’ classic sterling silver rings, ‘BK logo’ sterling silver rings and limited edition ‘Stone Pimp Ring’ collection available in a range of stones including amethyst, moon stone, ruby, amber and more.
“I will also be launching my first range of `BK Puppy Club’ gear for all the animal lovers out there,” says Paulo. “My dog Blanka has inspired me to create a whole range of dog-wear including my one invention which is yet to be released. I think it will revolutionize the style in which you walk your dog.”
