The Goat Story
THE GOAT STORY
Goat is a truly British brand, established by founder and designer Jane Lewis in 2001. The label now synonymous with understated luxury began life as a cashmere range for the fashion cognoscenti, and has since developed into a full ready-to-wear collection. Signature luxury knits have been complemented by equally recognisable separates, dresses and outerwear.
ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
Jane is the quintessential self-made British woman. She believes that her absence of formal fashion training has enabled her to learn “on the go” through sheer grit, hard work and life experience. Formerly assistant to Elspeth Gibson, working on beautiful, elegant evening wear, Jane was inspired to shift her attention to something every woman needs: a working wardrobe.
A working mother of three, Jane’s daily life is as varied and busy as the lives of the clientele she designs for. Goat clothing is created for real women, who multitask as intrinsically as breathing, and who want to look and feel their best without fuss or ostentation. It comes as no surprise that Goat’s discreet celebrity following epitomises the modern successful woman: hard working, at the top of her game, effortlessly stylish. Victoria Beckham, Lana del Rey, Gwyneth Paltrow and The Duchess of Cambridge are among the brand’s quiet celebrity clientele.
ABOUT THE BRAND
The key to Goat’s success is its self-assured brand identity; its ‘handwriting’. Goat represents understated elegance for stylish, discerning women.
Each piece is individually tailored using only the finest materials. Crafted to the highest standards, Goat clothing has fast become the go-to brand for stylish investment pieces which truly endure, thanks to classic tailoring, attention to detail and luxurious materials.
Classic silhouettes and wardrobe staples are elevated above the conventional by clever colour palettes and inspired little touches. British style is characterised by its diversity, by its freedom. Goat has filled a real niche – classic pieces with universal appeal, but enough flair in the details to hang comfortably in the wardrobes of women whose style demands a little something out of the ordinary.
Goat clothing is found in more than fifty UK stockists, including Matches Fashion and Harrods. The first flagship store opened in 2014 on Conduit Street, Mayfair.
