The Brand

Luxury Fashion & Leather House

Resplendent fabrics, striking shapes, luxurious leathers: these are the essence of Kat van Duinen. Confident, sophisticated, unapologetically stylish: these embody the Kat van Duinen woman.

Founded in 2010, Kat van Duinen is a leading luxury fashion and leather design house, focusing on exceptional fabrics, impeccable details and precise tailoring. The brand’s signature sustainable exotic leather pieces, as well as ready-to-wear collections are underpinned by a minimalistic aesthetic, and accented by a vibrant African spirit.

At its heart, the brand is proudly South African and guided by a commitment to nurture local artisans and industry, as well as to source materials from within the rich, eclectic country – from genuine exotic leathers to natural-fibre textiles.

The atelier’s confident style and timeless approach has garnered a loyal clientele who understand the value of investment pieces, and who consider the provenance and purpose of each item in their wardrobe, curating a collection of consciously chosen items.

Kat van Duinen collections explore the strength of simplistic shapes that speak to discretion and are based on a luxurious spirit: premium and sustainable materials, timeless design and exquisite craftsmanship.
