Karnit Aharoni

Karnit Aharoni’s collection is inspired by the background and experience of the designer, as well as where she finds herself now.

A true citizen of the world, Karnit has taken inspirational cues from her time growing up in the Middle East, Israel and New Zealand, and living in London, Milan and New York, working for major fashion houses, such as Ermenegildo Zegna and Donna Karan. The designer is now based in France, where the collection has been designed.

The wind-swept grace of searing sand dunes; the richly sweet fruit of the stubbornly resilient date palm; the lavish hospitality and colourful dress of the ruggedly enduring Bedouin people – the fascinating paradoxes and intrigue inherent to the deserts of her native Middle East permeate the collection of Karnit Aharoni.

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 collection makes extensive use of exclusively designed and developed textiles, exceptionally textural embroidery and luxurious knits, created with an eco-responsible approach.
Karnit's designs are both timeless and visionary; inspired by elements of men's fashion, but still decidedly feminine and classically sexy. Voluntarist silhouettes that are easy, effortless and adapted to contemporary life style on the go.

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.”

Karnit Aharoni said this about her latest collection;

“So much of fashion today is entirely trend driven, and there’s certainly a place for that. 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.”
