Elka Knitwear was founded by knitwear artist Kate Mischler in 2013, and was born out of Kate’s desire to create unique, handcrafted, opulent pieces, utilising only the finest fabrics. The brand offers one off pieces of wearable art, with each garment telling a story with its unique custom design. Kate designs garments for every woman, using clean lines and flattering shapes that compliment a variety of body shapes. Kate has now developed a diffusion line for the brand called Elka Wild, which fuses luxurious comfort with sophisticated style. Elka Wild is proudly designed and made in New Zealand and draws inspiration from nature, music, and art. “Fashion should be fun, not complicated. Elka Wild doesn’t follow trends, but focuses on timeless elegance, allowing women to easily make lasting updates to their wardrobe. Ultimately, the range blends quality and comfort without sacrificing style”. Elka Knitwear and Elka Wild are stocked in select boutiques throughout the nation as well as Elka’s online boutique.
