Jean Hare and Robin Key are design geeks.
"We met in London. With a mutual fascination for fashion and music we decided to work together writing, designing and manufacturing until eventually we were recording for EMI and showing collections at London Fashion Week and Paris Pret a Porter. Treasured memories include a catwalk show at The Astoria featuring our designs alongside Vivienne Westwood's and a Prince aftershow party in Camden."
Our collections featured in boutique stores in London's Covent Garden, South Molton St, Kensington High St, Notting Hill and Kings Road, Chelsea. We exported to Japan's Shibuya Ku district, New York's Saks Fifth Avenue and other exclusive stores in Hong Kong, Frankfurt and Barcelona.
Our designs have been worn by Annie Lennox, Sophie Ellis-Bextor. Paula Abdul, Erasure's Andy Bell and Geri Halliwell.
We love, pattern cutting, fabrics and graphics and produce small sustainable, slow fashion collections.
Available exclusively through this website
So much fashion is made to be disposable, mass produced thousands of miles away using questionable labour practices, resulting in the decline of the UK fashion industry.
Our solution is to produce small capsule collections made from UK sourced and produced materials wherever possible, slow fashion items, locally produced to reduce waste for a sustainable low carbon footprint.
We size our collections for 4 different body shapes, patterns are scaled for 4 different body types.
GROUP 1 (JEAN) - Jean is 5'2" tall and sometimes finds hem and body lengths to be too long.
GROUP 2 (ANNETTE) - Annette is 5'6" tall and finds that most things fit just right.
GROUP 3 (MELODIE) - Melodie is 5'9" tall and she sometimes has a problem with hem and body lengths but can just about get away with it most of the time.
GROUP 4 (JANICE) - Janice is 6'1" tall and likes to wear high heels. She finds hem, body and sleeve lengths are often too short.
Each body type is available in sizes 6 to 28
All of our collections are produced to order. We don't carry vast amounts of stock which helps to reduce our carbon footprint - so you may have to wait a little longer for your item to be produced, but they're definitely worth the wait.
We use digital printing methods to reduce waste water as the printed fabric doesn’t need as many wash/rinse cycles and there are no print screens to clean.
Thank you for ordering Key & Hare.
