History of the Brand

History of the Brand

We are a designer fashion brand with 25 years of tradition. Our logo JK KLETT stands for "In For Ever" and expresses our aim to produce timeless fashion that does not follow the dictates of current, short-lived trends.

We produce two distinctive lines of exclusive ladies wear: Ready-To Wear (RTW) and Couture.

Our speciality is the useage of high-quality fabrics with patterns of our own design that are produced in limited quantity only.

Our RTW line presents a new collection twice a year (A/W and S/S) and is sold through shops, while Couture is bespoke, made to measure, with an individual approach to each client.

Our clothing is complemented by high-quality handbags, shoes, accessories and also homedesign articles, all of which are our own design.

We currently have two fashion ateliers in two countries (Czech Republic and Slovakia) that serve our Couture clients and two own retail shops in high-class shopping centres in the Czech Republic, plus a designer concept store in Nice (France) and one in Dubai (UAE).
