Kurve is an Indonesian fashion brand focusing on producing basic wear that’s on trend, innovative, and versatile. Kurve offers a wide range of tops, bottoms, bodysuits, dresses, and outerwear in simple design that are meant to be worn every day.
Established in 2019 in Jakarta by Paula Anselmi, Kurve is built on a strong value revolving around women empowerment, especially in promoting self-love and body positivity. The message is carried through in Kurve’s campaign, which features women in different shapes and sizes. In Kurve’s social media platform, customers are encouraged to share their own empowering stories, creating a community of “Kurvies”.
Paula’s personal struggles are the foundation behind Kurve’s vision. Growing up, Paula spent her childhood days moving around schools to follow her parents. Consequently, she never had any close friends. Always felt alone and alienated, Paula went through a period of bullying; the experience affected her confidence.
When she founded Kurve, Paula aimed to share her story to other women who might be going through, or have gone through, the same journey. Kurve was built as a platform to encourage women to be more confident with what and who they are. More than just a brand, to Paula, Kurve is a personal statement.
Kurve’s design centers around simple but innovative basic wear with quality and versatility—another reflection of its founder. Paula’s personal style has always revolved around basic items, which are classic, timeless, and can easily be dressed up and down. She found that shopping for the styles that she wanted was not as easy in Indonesia. This is where she sees an opportunity.
At Kurve, one of the design philosophies is that beauty shines through simplicity. Paula’s design for Kurve puts great emphasis on fit and material. Kurve’s innovative “Konfidencewear”, made using high quality jersey and terry fabric, would hug every curve of the body comfortably.
