Debenhams has a new brand and it’ll change the way you think about it

If you're looking for new season wardrobe inspiration, then you might want to check out Debenham's new brand, KLEY, which is unlike anything you'd expect from the department store.

It is essentially the capsule wardrobe you've always aspired to create, all in one place - but a luxe version of it. Think leather skirts, silk blouses and cashmere blends. Silk slip dresses and everyday knits.

The collection is divided into four categories, called L.I.F.E. There are luxury pieces (leathers, cashmere and silk), important items (seasonal heroes), function items (weatherproof outerwear and sustainable fabrics) and essentials (layering pieces that are the building blocks of your wardrobe).


KLEY designer Lucia Heffernan said the brand represents 'the desire for realwear', offering a seasonless wardrobe and 'items which we hope will be loved for years'.

But the quality doesn't mean you'll have to go bankrupt either, with prices starting at just £20, and £220 being the most expensive leather items.

The collection is now available in 70 stores across the UK and online too.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
