New York, NY, USA – During the 2019 New York Fashion Week, Designer Sanguel Katak showcased her collection at the Angel Orensanz Foundation as part of New York Fashion Week Powered by Art Hearts Fashion during the city’s biggest week in fashion – 2019 marked the launch of Sanguel with the brands debut at Miami Swim Week and continued it’s U.S. campaign to headline NYFW.
Launched in Paris in 2019, luxury resort wear brand SANGUEL was created as an ode to chasing sun-kissed travels and curating the perfect vacation wardrobe.
Defined by distinctive yarns, considered finishes, and bold primary colors, SANGUEL has created the ideal travel capsule for globally minded aesthetes. Silhouettes are confident and flirty, creating a sense of drama and plenty of movement in the sea breeze. Spanning ultra-flattering swim wear, languid cover-ups and elevated kaftan’s for days spent poolside, to sensational knit cocktail dresses and jumpsuits for sunset Negronis, the brand embodies the quintessential globe-trotter lifestyle.
While SANGUEL maintains a firm nod to the classic jet-set ethos, it takes inspiration from the way we currently travel now. The brand is just as inspired by the sandy new-world shores of Brazil, Miami and LA, as it is by rocky old-world favorites such as Cap d’Antibes, Capri and Santorini. By designing luxurious, palm-tree worthy holiday staples that will never date and transition well to the city, SANGUEL is for all those free-spirited souls who see the world as open. Those who are forever chasing summer and are uncompromisingly feminine in their self-confidence and attitude.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Within the design industry, founder Sanguel Katak is considered a knitwear innovation revolutionary thanks to her bold compositions of novel yarns.
It all started with winning a design contest. After completing her BA in fashion design in 2004, Sanguel Katak succeeded in becoming a member of Hugo Boss’ first international talent team in Switzerland followed by an illustrious career in the fashion industry. Sanguel subsequently worked in the design teams for a number of both luxury and fast-fashion brands in Germany, Milan, and later, Spain, where she finally settled.
Despite a wide range of experiences, Sanguel’s mind always wandered back to the world of knitwear, which she was first exposed to during her time at Hugo Boss, and mastered during her tenure as senior designer of Women’s Knitwear at Inditex Group. While working with a global supply chain of yarn providers, Sanguel fell in love with the technical aspect of creating new knit compositions and their many poetic nuances. Each type of yarn can be heavy or featherlight and open a door to an entirely new design dream world. Sanguel is fascinated by the rhythm and movement of the pieces of yarn, and how each weaves together to form a naturally beautiful design in its entirety.
