KRAKEN is a high-end fashion brand, bespoke atelier and costume studio located in the very heart of London and directed by Italian designer Caterina Schmitt. Following her training in haute couture and a fashion design bachelor degree at UAL, Caterina self-taught herself the craft of latex wear and created a her own concept studio to embrace her uniquely heterogeneous background.
Driven by an adventurous spirit, today she excels in creating eccentric pieces for the fashion, music and stage industries as well as working on a one-off basis with a wide array of private clients. KRAKEN is proud to dress who wishes to present as female as well as those who are quite happy to stay in the middle. Our clothing conveys an exuberant yet classy sensuality in vibrant technicolour and stands confidently out of the crowd as only a true original can. In creating works that combine couture craftsmanship, timeless cool & irreverent ideas, the Krakenwoman is here to explore and challenge the world in a totally new key.
