Profile

Dutch designer Koos Van Den Akker creates striking clothing for stately women who appreciate the artistry of color and texture. Koos’ signature “collage” technique layers different fabrics for bold patterns; each garment is a work of art. An evening coat, for example, might piece together a lace-and-cashmere outer shell with a zebra-print lining and beaded finishing; similarly, the seasonal fur collection combines mink and sable in patchwork patterns to a ridiculously luxurious effect. Among so many busy designs, it’s easy to find yourself visually overwhelmed. Fortunately, Puck, the boutique owner, is an expert at pulling the appropriate pieces from the dizzying array of evening and outerwear. A vintage collection nestled against the back wall spans Koos’ 40-year career and boasts some impressive provenances—it’s not unlikely that the dresses on the rack have been to more White House dinners than you have.
