K M by L A N G E
K M by LANGE is a design studio founded in 2016. The brand was founded by two sisters, Kati and Marina Lange. Ukrainian siblings were passionate about beauty, crafts, and their homeland. They wanted to combine these things - and K M by LANGE was born.
The clothes are made in Ukraine by hand, sewn by local women. The siblings want to make sure the women who sew their clothes get fair compensation for their work. For Kati and Marina, socially responsible production is one way to show love for their homeland.
Kati and Marina want to create beautiful and sustainable clothes, but also to build a responsible company that carries sustainable development first. They want everything to have a deeper purpose than just making fashionable and beautiful clothes.
K M by LANGE wants to avoid a fast-moving culture and strive for sustainable design. Their goal is to create clothes for distinctive personalities. They hope that individuals could experience a sense of freedom by wearing their clothes.
K M by LANGE designs limited edition collections made from high-quality recycled materials. The aesthetics of their clothing celebrates a carefree lifestyle and strong femininity.
