KRAKEN COUNTER COUTURE is a high-end fashion brand and bespoke costume atelier located in the very heart of London and directed by 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 inclusive, progressive, a safe space for people to feel loved and have a good time dressing up. Our clothing combines couture craftsmanship with a good dose of irreverent ideas and conveys an exuberant 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’ rights and the people who work with us.
