Who We Are

“I’d be safe and warm, if I was in LA. California Dreamin on such a winter’s day” 

Skatie is a brand that channels a golden state of mind to bring you a little piece of California’s iconic and glamorous style.

Founded by a young visionary on a mission to disrupt wasteful practices, this collection is designed using surplus and upcycled fabrics. Skatie strives to make an impact on the industry, while keeping the vibe California cool. Channeling the ocean, the sun and the sky, Skatie pieces are timeless, effortless and affordable, proving responsible can be beautiful.



Susan Katherine Noyes Hutchinson is the owner, designer, visionary and heart behind this brand. At a very young age, the name Skatie was born when her older brothers put their heads together. Growing up in Chicago with seven siblings, she knew from a very young age that she wanted to be a designer. Skatie was first inspired by her Gramsie, who taught her how to sew and with her Mom as a role model, the hard work and determination came naturally. During the cold Chicago winters, Skatie was left California dreamin, which led her to LA to attend the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising.

Fast forward to today, Skatie lives in Venice with her British husband and Pomeranian where everyday has been an adventure, and SKATIE brings a piece of that to every girl having that same California daydream that Skatie knows all too well.
