Delicately scaled adjustable straps frame the raw-edged, soft-cup silhouette of this ruched bra top, which fastens at the back with paired hook-and-eye closure. The check-print viscose gains its distinctive texture from an initial crinkling that is carries out at the mill in northern Italy, followed by secondary pleating to add depth and dimension.
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.”
