Klements holds an innate preference for a macabre, unsettling beauty tempered by a lust for the progressive and strange. Our pieces draw inspiration from literature, music, and the natural world; all its cruelty and glory.We believe fashion should not be fast. Slow down, buy less, but buy ethically made quality pieces. In a world of ripped-off designs and soulless, exploitative mass production, we work hard to offer original and unique collections that are thoughtfully made. Our prints can take weeks to paint, our silks and garments are made slowly, with care - the way they used to be.
Our distinctive artworks and prints are hand-painted and drawn by the label's founder, Charlotte Allen. We work with the finest silks and organic cotton to create pieces that, with respect and care, will last forever.
With each season we strive to improve our label's sustainability and have recently started working with GOTS organic cotton and end-of-life cloths. We are proud of the ethical way we have always produced our collections since the launch of Klements in 2012. Our pieces are mostly made in England unless otherwise stated. We have continued to work with and support the same, local, small family-run manufacturers we have worked with for over a decade.
