We are thrilled to launch the KYLE CAVAN Greek Collection for over 30 organizations (with many more in the works). Like our Collegiate Collection, we took inspiration from things we love: vintage coins, classic crests and the trailblazers who wear it.
While designing the collection our team got to talking about what it means to be in a sorority or fraternity. For many, these organizations provide a sense of community, philanthropy and friendship that is often carried on for life. At KYLE CAVAN, we couldn't have started our company without our "crew": the strong group of women around us.
We love the idea of having a “crew” - a group of people that support each other and band together around a common interest.
While Kyle and I are close friends with our sorority sisters from college, we're also close with our high school friends, our past co-workers, our families. Kyle was a competitive swimmer growing up. These were the people she saw day in and day out for hours at a time. They became her family. Her support.
We believe that "crews" come in all different forms and our goal is to design collections that serve as a reminder of them.
So whether you're in a sorority, a business fraternity, the fashion club, a sports team, or a crew of your own making - we want to hear about it. We're big fans of an inspirational or unconventional story on friendship. You can send your stories HERE.
And if you don't see your organization yet, please let us know. We are likely working on it but just haven't received approval yet (e.g. Alpha Kappa Alpha does not allow new licensees to apply until 2020). We launched the Greek Collection after hundreds of requests, and we would love to do the same for other organizations.
We're so grateful for your support, and for those who want to celebrate their Greek affiliations, we hope you enjoy these beautiful, meant-to-be-layered, ageless collections!
