Kanak Plus Sizes

While reading SKORCH Magazine's blog, I discovered the Spanish retailer, Kanak Plus Sizes. Their edgy yet wearable designs are reminiscent of CarmaKoma (which is definitely a compliment), and I'm more than happy to add Kanak to the list of plus size stores that offer a fresh, young perspective. They just released their latest collection, and my favorite looks are below.





I promise they do have more than just black leather, but of course I tend to gravitate toward that aesthetic. Browse the entire collection at their official website.

  3. # 1 and # 2 are fresh to death!!! I've just recently started reading your blog, and I must say, it's so refreshing to see plus size clothes that don't look cheapies or just miserable. I mean, these looks are straight up style.

    Dig what you're doing here. Cheers.

  9. Assuming that thorax is chest and huckle is hip, the size chart is still very odd -- the chest measurement is larger than the hip measurement in every size. I'm not sure what to make of that.

  10. Hi, I'm Spanish and from about 4 years ago I purchase in Kanak not normally have this style, but this season I was delighted, as you say, resembles Carmakoma. If you plan to buy online, thinking that the sizes do not correspond with Torrid, like a 22 or 24 Torrid is a Kanak XXL.
    Sorry about my English, it is from google translate.
