Goat is a womens knitwear brand famous for its chunky cashmere and cotton knits, including coats, cardigans and jackets, and also its pretty tunics and dresses. Goat was founded by Jane Lewis, a British fashion designer, in 2001, borne from her frustration at being unable to find versatile knits that she could use season after season.
Despite having had no formal business or fashion training, the Goat brand has been well received, and is now on sale in high end boutiques around the UK, with exports increasing every year. In fact, the Goat brand received the New Exporter Award of the year in 2007, for UK fashion exports. Jane Lewis remains committed to increasing the profile of the Goat label in overseas markets.
Goat knits are made from either Italian cashmere yarn or the finest cotton. Garments are manufactured either in Italy or the UK. Jane is an avid collector of vintage buttons, and these buttons have inspired many of the buttons that appear on her coats, jackets and cardigans. Most of the buttons used on her knitwear are manufactured to her own specifications.
Matches Fashion have a great selection of this season's Goat knitwear, including some stylish cardigans, coats and dresses with deliciously oversized buttons.
