Inside Kinoak’s Greenhouse

Words by Tara Kenny

Wearing Kinoak’s Greenhouse collection is akin to the result of visiting a costume shop and rolling around in its contents—a boutique costume shop that only deals in beautifully tailored garments, mind you. You’ll come out the unlikely mixture of a Hawaiian native in gloriously brash head to toe hibiscus, an extra from a ’70’s high school movie in a bomber jacket, geek chic mustard shorts and stark white gym socks and the late, great Amy Winehouse, should you adopt the winged eyeliner and slight beehive of the model used in the lookbook. Like barbecue Shapes and mayonnaise, it may not sound desirable on paper but somehow when the aforementioned style influences meet, great things happen.
