The British Discovery

Paula Kozłowska, working under the pseudonym Kai Kotto, is the latest Polish discovery of Harry Styles’ stylist Harry Lambert, recently described by British (and Polish) Vogue. Paula is a creator of adorable knitted waistcoats with motifs inspired by 19th century folklore, primarily Slavic and Scandinavian. But her Instagram profile hints that there's more to discover. You can feel the Japanese influence under the skin in her products. Apparently, she has always been fascinated by the contours of Japanese clothing. From time to time, her Instagram account also features 19th-century Japanese book covers, which - like her hand-knitted clothes - are stunning in their colours and composition, evoking childhood memories.
