We are ecstatic to welcome the gorgeous new Melbourne-based label Kinoak to the Monk House family.

After studying Pattern Making and Garment Construction in Auckland, Kinoak designer Amie Darragh cut her teeth working for Kate Sylvester before heading to Melbourne and working for Monk House favourites, P.A.M. After 8 years with P.A.M., Darragh threw herself into Kinoak creating a celestial debut AW12 collection, Rookie.

Drawing inspiration from teen drama Friday Night Lights, this stunning AW12 collection features the varsity-esque I-heart Riggins jacket, gorgeous mustard and grey gilets, sweet 50s style long sleeved dresses and amazing chunky knit cardigans.

Bucking the trends, Kinoak is a label that creates practical, wearable and suitable garments using the best fabric sourced from all over the world including Japan and Italy - brought together by skilled local makers here in Melbourne.
