She’s the Russian-born beauty that brings off-duty Parisian style to chic leather goods. Meet Katya Komarova, the award-winning designer and face behind luxury, sustainable brand, Katya Komarova.
Created with the modern woman in mind who desires her own unique style, what sets Katya’s self-titled label apart is its ability to completely personalise your sartorial sidekick. Uniting her love for geometry and respect for Italian craftsmanship, each piece adopts current trends into the minimalist range with interchangeable handles, colours and accents.
From coveted micro-bags to bucket-style, belted dual-compartment statement pieces and more,  the collection features a variation of colours, straps and handles so customers can mix-and-match, enabling them to create different looks every day. From bamboo to chain and chic cross-body, Katya Komarova defines timeless style.
Existing ethically and sustainably, Katya takes a responsible and considerate approach to the environment while producing the pieces locally in Sydney.
Working predominantly with natural materials like Italian vegetable-tanned leather and cotton, the brand continued to work towards a more ecological footprint such as moving all production to Australia and updating the range to stitch-free versatile handbags with interchangeable straps and handles.
