Knitwear is at the heart of KHAITE. With a banded placket lined in tortoiseshell buttons, this deep v-neck cardigan enveloped the body in featherweight cashmere selected for its exceptional softness and intarsia-knit with leopard spots.
KHAITE is a women’s ready-to-wear collection that reimagines classic American sportswear for the twenty-first century. Designed to be cherished, each piece proposes a fresh balance of opposing elements—past and future, masculine and feminine, strength and softness, structure and fluidity—while embodying a signature sensuality and ease.
Founded in 2016 by creative director Catherine Holstein, New York-based KHAITE evolves with each new season, building upon a foundation of robust yet polished items distinguished by exceptional materials and subtle yet striking details. The collection (pronounced “Kate”) takes its name from the Greek word (χαίτη) meaning “long, flowing hair.”
