Exotic textures and ‘torn’ tailoring techniques in the new collection SS24 of Ukrainian brand KATERINA KVIT

Since the dawn of time, leather was used by humans to cover and protect our bodies. Now, in an era of turbulence and changes, we instinctively want to regain comfort and peace, and find shelter in natural materials. Moreover, natural leather becomes this soft harbor. Ukraine-born fashion designer Katerina Kvit unveiled a new SS24 collection created to inspire individuals to live sustainable, thoughtful and balanced life. 

Leather is most certainly sustainable since leather products can be used for years without getting old and worn out. Natural leather is ecological in the sense that when you keep it for such a long time, it is an investment. Therefore, Katerina Kvit’s main motto is producing edgy and fashionable authentic leather as sustainably as possible—and creating products that will stand the test of time. The brand works with genuine leather only as the sustainability depends on longevity and quality of clothes. Key items of the collection: signature jackets with notch lapels, relaxed suits, buttery-soft bombers, luxe coats, ultra-mini croc-embossed skirts and dress as modern updates on beloved ’90s. 

Katerina Kvit did extensive research and pinned contemporary artworks, street-style pictures, and subculture communities to her 2024 mood boards to find the best inspiration for the head-to-toe leather looks.
