After working for couturier Ralph Rucci, Auguste Soesastro launched KRATON – luxury ready to wear label – in New York in 2008. His journey, from growing up in different countries, and studied on Architecture and Digital Arts in Australia until he graduated then arrived in Paris at the age of 24, is a fascinating and inspiring one. Now, KRATON is internationally recognized for its precisely simple aesthetics and unique construction.  

The name of KRATON came from the Javanese word for “palace”, a union of skilled artisans and labor of love. The collection speaks for itself with highly influenced by heritage of Indonesia in premium garments and crafted to perfection for everyday wardrobe. For his work in the name of his country, we are so proud to have him as our latest Designer Spotlight.
