Born in Australia, Hyde & Stone is an effortless luxury label that responsibly curates wardrobe essentials to transcend season and time. Each collection is an exploration of the interplay between undone ease and flattering form, tailoring high quality fabrics into versatile and timeless silhouettes.
Made to oscillate effortlessly between seaside or trattoria, each collection is designed to endure like the time-softened wools and silks they’re tailored from.
The people behind it - From a lineage of tailors, Australian designer Jemyma Kavanagh focuses on effortless form and meticulously crafted fits in each Hyde & Stone collection. Working with a canvas of fine natural fibres, the label exemplifies timeless and feminine silhouettes. With a design execution that’s inherently responsible, from high quality fabrics to eternal structures, Kavanagh reimagines luxury as a lifestyle to be found in the everyday.
Hyde & Stone emerged from humble beginnings, with a background in fashion design and clothing production and a family of tailors and creatives, Kavanagh and her grandmother worked closely together to tailor each garment by hand.
Originally as a passion project, the designer Jemyma Kavanagh would spend hours working by hand designing, pattern making, hand-cutting and sewing garments with her grandmother, tailoring Hyde & Stone garments to each woman's unique measurements working with a made-to-order, handmade in Australia model.
The motive behind Hyde & Stone from the beginning was to create timeless, well-made garments, focusing on fit and fine natural materials for women to feel confident and to love in their wardrobes for years. The designer was passionate about never wanting to pursue a mass-produced brand of disposable clothing.
“I’ve always had a love for designing since I was a little girl. Both my mother and grandmother had taught me to make things well. How to create with natural fabrics and how they’ll last, how they’ll wear, how they’ll fall. They taught me not to consume so much, not to be wasteful.”
“I think the quality is something that has been inbuilt in me and appreciated through every aspect of life, being passed down through family generations.”
