Casual. Polished. Perfection. That’s the essence behind Cate Holstein’s new label Khaite, which launched exclusively at The Line last season. Khaite is classic, American sportswear stripped down to the most bare, yet covetable, basics that include classic, high waisted denim, felted cashmere sweaters, and merino wool bodysuits – my personal favorite. It’s all quite simple, yes, but the attention to detail is essential to the brand’s refreshing appeal. Cashmere undergoes different and multiple wash processes to create an exceptionally soft and luscious texture. The denim sanding process, which is overseen by Cate herself, creates that ideal vintage feel. Perfection comes at a price but there’s no doubt that these pieces would remain closet staples for years.
