EK London is a young, sophisticated, yet fun and edgy knitwear line dedicated to the casual moments in a women’s life.
The collection consists of dresses, interchangeable separates and light outerwear for Pre Fall; kaftans, swimwear and destination wardrobe staples for the Resort season. EK London by Ekaterina Kukhareva was launched to bridge the gap between the bi-annual presentations of the evening wear collection of the eponymous label.
Ekaterina Kukhareva style is distinct, recognisable, versatile and wearable. The signature prints and patterns inspired by nature, architecture, history and objects d’art are re-interpreted in a way that is fresh, cool, urban and chic in equal measures.
EK London is designed to be worn and enjoyed around the clock, with comfort and wearability playing a major factor when designing the textiles and final pieces. The clothes are designed to last and to be enjoyed from season to season.
