At once robust and polished, KHAITE (rhymes with “great”) reimagines classic American sportswear for the twenty-first century. The collection finds confidence in contrast—of past and future, masculine and feminine, strength and softness, structure and fluidity. Designed to be cherished, each piece proposes a fresh balance of opposing elements while embodying a signature sensuality and ease.
The spirit of Spring 2018 is both crisp and calm. Tailored silhouettes gain dimension and lightness through deliberately placed pleats, soft gathering, and refined ruffles, revealing the sculptural qualities of cool Italian cottons. In a nod to the stillness of summer in America, relaxed shapes and bias cuts accentuate the fluid drape of materials ranging from crepe-back satin to raw-edged burlap. Grounding the breezy, by-the-seaside palette are sleek stretch knits and a flourish of bold stripes.
