behind the curtain: the krakenwoman
KRAKEN COUNTER COUTURE 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. Driven by an adventurous spirit, since 2014 the Kraken team has excelled in creating eccentric pieces for the fashion, music and stage industries, as well as working with a wide array of private clients. KRAKEN is proud to dress whoever wishes to present as female, as well as those who are quite happy to stay in the middle. We like to think ourselves to be an inclusive, progressive, a safe space for people to feel loved and have a good time dressing up. Our clothing combines couture craftsmanship and irreverent ideas and it is said to convey an exuberant yet classy sensuality in vibrant technicolour. When you buy a Kraken not only you’ll stand confidently out of the crowd as only a true original can, but you’ll know it to be made in-house, respecting the environment, animals and people who work with us.
