‘Tis the season to be cozying up in your most comfortable lounge wear and try to ride out the chilly weather. To all fashionistas, I found a brand that let’s you do that in a chic way that is guaranteed to fulfill all your fashionable cravings.
Kings of Cole is a chic outerwear brand that specializes in hoodies, pullovers, zip ups, sweatpants, and more. I got the privilege to meet them in person, and to try out one of their hoodies. Worn by celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Selena Gomez, and the fabulous Kardashian sisters, Kings Of Cole is making a fame-filled statement in the most comfortable way. I would be lying if I told you I didn’t get tons of compliments asking where my hoodie was from, and the lit up faces when I tell them that the zippers on the wear are all made out of Rose Gold. If that doesn’t say chic then I don’t know what does!
Elana Brynes, the Founder of Kings of Cole, needed a way to stay warm AND fashionable while living in Boston. This inspired her to create the perfect hoodie and sweat wear for men and of course, the perfect “boyfriends hoodie” for women!
“Kings of Cole Clothing Brand, LLC is a celebration of creativity, music, honor, and power. Kings of Cole encourages young people to live each day to the fullest, and to embody their own legacy. Always enjoy and celebrate each day, and look good living it. “
My Interview with the Founder and CEO:
1. Where did the inspiration come from for the rose gold zippers that seem to be the Statement detail on the Kings of Cole pieces?
After graduating college, I attended a networking event and I noticed that a lot of the businessmen attendees were wearing rose gold watches. My friends and I are all obsessed with rose fold everything, so I realized that it really is a unisex metal. It quickly became Kings of Cole’s signature.
2. What makes Kings of Cole unique and different from other companies that create loungewear?
Kings of Cole is all about the fabric. Our sweats are made from ridiculously soft material, and can be dressed up or down. Our hoodies and sweatpants are cut longer and more tailored, creating a put-together look while still centered on comfort. Our rose gold zipper and hardware detailing also dresses up our loungewear. We have a ton of celebrity fans including: Gwyneth Paltrow, Tracy Anderson, the Kardashians, Selena Gomez and many more!
3. When did you know that Kings of Cole was going to be a huge hit?
When I first started my company, celebrity fitness trainer and guru Tracy Anderson immediately became a fan. Tracy interviewed me about Kings of Cole on her website, and I knew then that I was on to something. Tracy Anderson is a fitness expert, and for her to love my product was a huge moment for me.
4. Who are some of your top clients that absolutely love your product?
Gwyneth Paltrow is a huge supporter of Kings of Cole. We actually worked with Gwyneth’s website goop to create a capsule collection of Sweatshirts and Sweatpants. The Kardashians have also been extremely supportive of Kings of Cole by wearing our clothing on their TV show, and carrying Kings of Cole at their retail stores: Dash.
5. I was recently going through your Look Book, and I noticed the “Bye Haters” wear that you created. What inspired you to create this chic anti bullying wear?
I created our Anti-Bullying “BYE HATER” campaign because bullying is an extremely important topic for me. Almost everyone has experienced bullying of some kind and it is unacceptable. People should be taught at an early age the importance of supporting each other and building others up. I hope to continue to spread the message that bullying of any kind is just not ok.
6. Obviously, Kings of Cole is a little pricey, especially for loungewear, what is something you would like buyers to know to make sure they are getting what they are paying for?
Kings of Cole is definitely an investment piece. Many of our customers live in their Kings of Cole sweats and feel good wearing our pieces, and it is worth it!
Do the right thing, check out Kings of Cole. You deserve to experience what it feels like to feel and look sophisticated in the most comfortable loungewear.
