Koi Designer Scrubs Mariposa line for Fall 2017.
March 2nd 2017 – Las Vegas, NV
United Uniforms was invited to the fall 2017 preview by Koi Designer Scrubs in Las Vegas. In true Koi tradition, the setting was in a fun location amongst industry friends. In fact, United Uniforms owners Jason Marshall and Albert Saliev were introduced to each other at a Koi preview a few years back. This year was no exception, and we were thankful to be a part of this event with Kathy Peterson and her team. We were thrilled to be one of the firsts for the unveiling of Koi Designer Scrubs Mariposa.
Each season, most medical scrub brands release new prints and “fashion” colors. Koi Designer Scrubs typically has some of the best prints in the medical uniforms industry. However, the preview kicked off with the ever successful Koi Lite collection. Koi Lite for men has been a huge success for the medical industry. For Fall 2017, you can expect newly added colors to the collection such as Ceil Blue and Hunter Green for men. For the women’s collection, we’ve decided to add Koi Lite prints to our new North Naples scrubs store. We will also add a beautiful ruby red Koi Lite scrub set from the Fall 2017 collection.
Our next preview was the Koi Tech scrub line. Most notably, wine has been added to the solids collection, and a series of limited edition sparkle tops were added as well. The sparkle tops feature a pattern of foil print emblazoned stars. Black with gold stars, Navy with silver stars, and Wine with rose gold stars. We have seen the upward trend in popularity for Koi Tech scrubs like we initially saw for Koi Lite. We are excited about the direction this collection is heading.
Kathy Peterson took a moment to discuss two of her other lines that she would not be previewing at this event. Koi Sapphire, a premium line of medical scrubs, and Orange Standard workwear. No new items have been added to the Koi Sapphire line but, Koi continues to maintain inventory. Orange Standard will receive a complete overhaul which we might see as soon as the winter collection. We then switched gears to discuss the new line by Koi Designer Scrubs Mariposa.
The spanish word “Mariposa” means butterfly, and Koi Designer Scrubs Mariposa is an ode to it’s beauty. Koi Designer Scrubs Mariposa follows suit with a similar stretch fabric to the Koi Sapphire collection. Each piece in the collection features a heat transferred vinyl butterfly or “mariposa”, similar to the retro glitter stickers from the 1980s. Other details include laser cut stenciling in throughout the collection. The vibrant collection features updated stylish and contemporary fit. We will launch this collection with an undershirt included as a gift set. We are excited to introduce Mariposa by Koi Designer scrubs, which will ultimately replace Koi Sapphire in our retail stores.
Lastly, we saw the Fall 2017 Koi Designer Scrubs collection close with the fun stuff. Expect an outrageous Halloween Toki Doki print for scrubs, T-Rex compression socks for men, and playful surgical masks featuring lips, mustaches, and more. We’ve ordered several new prints, as well as a holiday print to go with the beautiful red scrubs we previously mentioned. The Fall 2017 Koi Designer Scrubs collection will begin to arrive in our two stores around July 1st. We are proud to be the exclusive retailer for Koi Designer Scrubs in Naples, FL. and we look forward to presenting these wonderful new scrubs to you.
