We are so pleased to share with you a preview of our inaugural COLLECTION NO.01, launching Spring 2017. We look forward to sharing our philosophy, storytelling and communications with you and your in team.
We are committed to challenging the under-apparel industry to be less about sex and submission, and more about self-love and substance. We see the sense of being a woman as a source of strength. We ensure those pieces closest to the body not only feel natural, but are organically natural.
We want to be known as the brand that reintroduces strength, style, self-love, and substance to the intimate apparel space.
Below is further information about KENT, how we started, where we are going, and key marketing and partnerships underway.
On behalf of the KENT team, I look forward to discussing opportunities together.

// WHY ORGANIC SILK? //
Silk is the strongest of natural fibers, containing natural protein & 18 essential amino acids. It also contains natural cellular albumen which speeds up the metabolism of skin cells, thus delaying the aging process. As a breathable fabric and natural temperature regulator, silk helps the body retain heat in cold and excess heat is expelled in warmer weather. It is hypoallergenic and perfect for those with sensitive skin.
// ABOUT KENT //
What if lingerie was less about sex and submission, and more about self-love and substance?
What if the sense of being a woman was a source of strength?
What if those pieces closest to our body not only felt natural, but were natural?
What if under-apparel valued style AND function over superfluous details, synthetic accents and uncomfortable silhouettes?
Out of this search for meaning and more in an hyper sexualized category, the beginnings of KENT were formed - first through a capsule collection of organic graffiti lingerie that KENT Founder, Stacy Anderson, presented for her MA Thesis at London College of Fashion.
Today, KENT presents a minimal, streamlined approach to under-apparel that aims to reinvigorate the intimate apparel space by elevating femininity as a celebration of individual form, style and image.
The KENT woman is represented by our 4 key beliefs:
STYLE // STRENGTH // SELF-LOVE // SUBSTANCE
Welcome, KENT woman.
