■ New inspo added on
Karla Deras Chambers is a womenswear designer and former blogger at Karla’s Closet.
Under the label The Line By K designs elevated basics that suits the needs of her clients and satisfies their fashion sense with her latest collections.
The Line is for the woman who wants to wear something more than just t-shirt and jeans, while still keeping the effortless look. The Line’s focuses on creating well-constructed pieces are built to last, using high quality fabrics in timeless silhouettes that you will not regret purchasing.
This ethos is very in line with the focus on sustainability common to most independent designers.
The Line by K - Great materials, unique designs
Like most elevated basics, The Line by K relies on carefully sources materials and unique construction. This line is not about luxury that is inconspicuous consumption in the sense that the pieces look basic but only you know they are in fact special.
Contrary to that model, The Line by K focuses on essentials of every wardrobe, but the designs and construction makes it immediately obvious you are not wearing fast fashion.
At the same time, the prices are not over the top at all.
And people like it. Over the year 2021 The Line by K became available first at Netaporter and soon after at Revolve, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Carbon38 and more.
The pieces are produced ethically in Los Angeles, where Deras Chambers lives.
