KHAITE's Amazing Product

KHAITE was founded in 2016 with the mission of creating an American luxury womenswear brand with pieces designed to be cherished. The brand takes its name from the Greek word (χαίτη) meaning “long, flowing hair” and embodies a state of freedom.

Known for creating “clothes women truly want to wear” (Vogue, 2019), KHAITE has become a coveted luxury brand that is admired on and off the runway for its craftsmanship and aesthetic. The brand has continued to capture the attention of the fashion community since its founding, and in September 2022, Founder and Designer Cate Holstein was named the Womenswear Designer of the Year by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).

Today, KHAITE offers a full range of ready-to-wear, footwear, handbags, and accessories and is sold in over 270 points of distribution with 120 partners globally, including e-commerce and retail. In February 2023, KHAITE opened its first brick-and-mortar store on Mercer Street in New York City.

Stripes Support

Stripes built a relationship with the KHAITE team over many years and watched as the brand continued to gain recognition in the industry and attract a loyal following of luxury shoppers globally. In 2023, KHAITE chose to partner with Stripes because of our shared vision for the brand and our ability to take an active role in global expansion and team building. We are thrilled to partner with Cate and the KHAITE team in scaling a global luxury house.
