NYFW SS18 : Khaite and the Call of the Classic

by Olivia Moreau

Cate Holstein's Khaite is the fashion statement that ends in a revered silence and a dash of clarity. It does not sway with the whims of slogan t-shirts and off the shoulder trends that come and go. Her SS18 collection is deeply rooted in that idea of the classics outliving the short attention span of the trend filled fashion circus. Khaite sticks to its basic form as in classic, understated, fully functional and uber-elegant. To reach this sort of seamless beauty not only requires understanding the foundational aesthetics of western fashion but also requires an exceptional talent at executing a narrative to dizzying perfection.

To gush over this collection is an appropriate reaction.
