If you’ve been living in Singapore for a while now, you’ll know just how humid it can get here. That’s why light and flowy summer dresses are a godsend in this tropical climate! Here we discover KOV [cove], a newly launched online boutique offering super comfy, made-in-Bali dresses and shirts in flattering cuts, and with unique ocean-inspired batik prints.
Currently, KOV’s mini collection consists of three breezy dresses that’ll take you from beach to brunch, as well as a classic men’s shirt, perfect for throwing on for a casual night out. Featuring patterns that are inspired by ocean life, each piece is one-of-a-kind due to the batik stamping and dyeing process. The wax stamp acts as a colour separator, protecting the colour of the fabric already beneath the wax. This creates multiple layers and looks to the fabric pattern. The garments are then finished with a scrunch dye using soda ash to give them a distinctive look.
What’s even better than scoring a gorgeous, summer-friendly dress that doesn’t break the bank? Knowing your purchase supports a worthy cause! KOV runs a philanthropic program, 5 for Life, where the business dedicates five percent of its sales to ocean conservation efforts. It supports three organisations that work tirelessly to conserve ocean life: Bali Sharks, the Coral Reef Alliance and the Sea Turtle Foundation.
Bali Sharks saves sharks from finning operations, then nurses them back to a healthy size and releases them into protected waters in the Indonesia archipelago. Working with people around the world – from fishermen to government leaders, and divers to scientists – the Coral Reef Alliance leads holistic conservation programs that improve coral reef health in Hawaii, Indonesia, Fiji and elsewhere. Based in North Queensland, Australia, the Sea Turtle Foundation works to protect sea turtles through research, education and action. They actively rescue stranded turtles, train others to respond to strandings, provide educational programs, and support research into turtle health and ecology throughout the Indo-Pacific region.
