CATHERINE QUIN is a luxury capsule collection defined by a minimal aesthetic of studied simplicity, elegance and a purist palette of black. The brand delivers timeless, atelier produced pieces, with architecturally inspired details adding a layer of subtle complexity to clean silhouettes.
Catherine’s desire to create a versatile wardrobe that transcends occasion, climate and culture, emerges from her own experience bridging geographies and industries. Dividing her time between Los Angeles and London, with a career spanning both board room and cutting floor, Catherine is intuitive in her creation of beautifully simple pieces that meet the complexities of women in the modern world.
She designs for those she’s inspired by: strong, sophisticated women who want to be judged on more than their appearance yet retain their feminine sensibility; women whose intelligence is reflected in the cut of a jacket, not defined by it.
Catherine's designs reflect her refined, minimal aesthetic and her experience of how fashion is lived in the real world: an elegant yet quiet luxury. Absolving herself of trend led, fast fashion, Catherine has developed a trans-seasonal, sophisticated wardrobe that aims to simplify the life of the modern woman and the daily ritual of getting dressed.
With a purist commitment to black, the collection explores the relationship between cut, silhouette, and texture without distraction.
Black naturally gives the boldest contrast showcasing the clean lines and silhouettes of each piece. The intensity of black changes with the dimensions and form of the pieces, the texture of the fabric and the movement of the wearer.
Influenced by Pierre Soulages, the French painter of black and light, the first collection is named after his 'Outrenoir' period.
