IL Duomo Welcomes Khaite - The Feminine Unique
The Feminine Unique is the way in which American womenswear brand Khaite uses to describe their aesthetic, and one couldn’t agree more. Founded in 2016 by NYC based creative director Catherine Holstein , the brand is known for its ability to balance fluidity, strength and softness with traditional masculine and feminine energies. Khaite is also known for their rebranding of classic American sportswear into modern day 21st century pieces and each season the brand offers a new take on classic robust items that are distinguished by high quality fabrics as cashmere and denim, embellished with subtle details in a way that emphasises elegance in a unique way. Their SS21 collection was focused on amplifying the strength of women during a time when things might seem and feel quite dire. This included everything ranging from cashmere sweaters , to glossy knee high patent boots, to some of the brands classic knit and ruched dresses. Comfort played a major role in this collection, alongside glamour and strength as many of the pieces were crafted from wool, viscose yarns and recycled cashmere.
