Karnit Aharoni is a true citizen of the world, Karnit has taken inspirational cues from her time growing up in Israel and New Zealand, and living in London, New York and Milan.
She has worked with and for such icons as Donna Karan and Ermenegildo Zegna however the Karnit Aharoni collection projects her authenticity. Her aesthetic, while perceptibly rooted in classical design, is fresh and dynamic – imbued with modern artistic details gleaned from her experiences on four continents.
Karnit’s designs are at once timeless and visionary; informed by elements of menswear, but always decidedly feminine.
The collection is entirely designed in France, Karnit’s current home, and produced in France Italy and Portugal, with the great attention to quality and passion for craft and detail one would expect from French-made fashions. The smart, sumptuous, subtly sexy all-day-wear makes extensive use of exclusively designed and developed textiles, exceptionally textural embroidery and luxurious knits.
The collection references Karnit’s Middle Eastern background.
The date palm tree, cultivated in Karnit’s homeland since the origins of recorded history, is a recurring motif throughout the collection. The dragon – embroidered on each item and the collection’s brand mark – is from a piece of heirloom jewellery once worn by Karnit’s grandmother, who she describes as “a strong and inspiring woman in a long line of equally powerful and active women, who pave their own paths.”
“So much of fashion today is entirely trend driven, and there’s certainly a place for that.” Says Karnit, “My collection is for the client who likes giving a wink to today’s trends but has a deep and abiding appreciation for the timeless, classic elements of fashion. She wants a put- together look that travels well, reflects her worldly eye for quality and personal sense of style.”
