Designed to sit high on the waist, this reconstructed midi skirt reveals its two legged origin in angles seaming, marigold topstitching, and a frayed hem. Finishing touches include a cleaning finished back slip for ease of movement, copper rivets, and an enameled button of antique brass.
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.”
