After many years as a designer for iconic American brands including Zac Posen and Coach, Kate launched her eponymous collection in 2018. The brand is rooted in themes that are classically American but translated in new ways that include everyone. Each collection is built on a mix of tailoring and easy shapes with an air of relaxed glamor and strength, often rendered in expressive color and with artisanal details and embellishment. Sustainability factors into all choices – Hundley strives to create pieces that will be cherished over time, to support fair wages by producing locally with trusted partners, and to choose materials with environmental impact in mind. The collection is produced in New York City, where Kate lives with her husband, artist Mitchel Coffman.
