The anticipated Købn SS 21/22 release is finally here, and trust us, you’re not going to be disappointed. A true feast for the eyes, the brand welcomes two new colours to its core collection alongside a transportive photoshoot to complement.
OMG it’s here design lovers! The new Købn Spring/Summer collection has finally arrived. The range includes two brand new STUNNING colours that you’re going to be itching to incorporate into your home; you can never have too many towels, right?
This year, the collection celebrates the nurturing and grounding benefits of bathing, and pays tribute to this time-honoured practice. Referencing luxurious alabaster bathtubs excavated in Santorini, Turkish hammams, and ancient Japanese bath houses, the collection draws attention to the therapeutic advantages of bathing and its connection to positive wellbeing and relaxation.
So, without further ado, let’s get into the guts of the gorgeous new collection, check out the two brand new colours, explore the story behind the brand, and of course, treat your eyes to some absolutely delicious imagery!
Your new anxiety soothing, relaxation promoting, and emotionally healing best friend.
Graceful, romantic, and innocent – these are words that immediately flood our minds when we think of, or see, the colour lilac. And that’s exactly what’s represented in Købn’s newest colour addition to their towel collection.
Often mistaken for lavender (which is fair, they’re both shades of purple), lilac has one attributing feature that sets it apart from its closely related cousin. If you’re handy with a colour wheel, you’ll know purple is the meeting point between red (warm) and blue (cool). Lilac contains tints of pink making it sit closer to the warmer end of the wheel – so if you’re partial to a bit of soft warmth, lilac is your new best mate.
Anywho, back to the towel. Købn have chosen the colour lilac to represent the lepidolite mineral, which is said to soothe anxiety, promote relaxation, and bring emotional healing. They’ve paired this with a soft caramel stripe to represent the carnelian mineral, which promotes optimism, courage, and inner strength. With this in mind, we’re thinking this is the perfect towel to counter a busy lifestyle, and encourage a calming balance to help bring the chill.
Oh hey, Jasper
The theme is tranquil and wholeness, but make it a feisty, exciting and lit!
Oooooh red, yes, we love red. But we’re REALLY loving it here; Købn’s new jasper towels are setting our hearts on fire (and we have a sneaking suspicion they might be doing the same to yours too).
Mixing red with a touch of fiery earthy-brown, this colour story is invigorating, energising, and feisty. Almost rust, but at the same time, almost not, this deep and rich colour represents the semi-precious gemstone, jasper. Known as the ‘supreme nurturer’ stone, it brings a sense of tranquility and wholeness to promote comfort and reassurance. Paired with a stripe of balanced and harmonious fresh mint, Købn’s jasper range is both exciting and nurturing.
The Købn Story
From little things, big things grow.
Købn was founded in 2017 by the wonderful Sophie Matson. After building her knowledge and experience in the textile industry over 15 years, she decided to launch the Australian lifestyle brand with thoughtful design, ethical production, and sustainable practices as the core foundational pillars.
Blending architecture, interiors, art, and human culture, with natural elements and practised colour theory, Købn encourages play and interaction. The result is a product range with an enduring and timeless feel; a trend-less direction that celebrates style.
The brand’s products carry Oeko-Tex, SEDEX and GOTS certifications (love!), and are made under ethical production mechanisms, socially responsible working conditions, and meet sustainable practices across all supply chains. This small business is really thinking big picture.
