The first drop of our WAHP x L&Y Collab is now live!
We’re so happy to be collaborating with the fabulous We Are Hairy People - the Bristol-based independent clothing brand and social enterprise, founded by artist Sarah Caulfield, that champions using art and fashion as therapy for mental wellness. All work is made-to-order, organic, ethically produced and plastic-free!
Instead of over-producing brand new items, we wanted to get creative and up-cycle some of your favourite styles; our Addison jeans and Stanley t-shirt. Each piece is made to order and entirely unique, using hand-dyeing and hand-painting techniques by the artists in the studio.
Due to this, this particular mini collection is priced higher than our regular limited edition collections – as a collaboration with an independent art studio and considering the labour and higher costs that go into creating ethical pieces in the UK. All products are hand painted and ice-dyed by the We Are Hairy Team of artists – who are super passionate about paying more than the living wage. As a living wage employer, we are fully on board with this! Eco-dyes are also a little pricier than standard dyes.
How many will there be, we hear you ask? This will be a small first drop with limited sizes as WAHP can up-cycle only so many at a time! As we haven't made new pieces but are up-cycling existing favourites already in stock - there is also limit on available sizing. To make sure there is fair chance of getting what you are after, we're going to release this collection across a couple of dedicated drops. So don't worry! — if you miss out on bagging your size this time around, you’ll be able to sign up to be notified when the next drop lands soon.
Sarah and the WAHP team will be getting to work on the second drop over the next month or so, and we'll keep you in the loop if you're signed up for alerts!
These are our much loved Addison Jeans, which have been hand ice-dyed in beautiful marbled tones of rich purple, pink and blue, creating completely unique patterns of fuchsias and mauves which we just cant stop looking at! Each piece is one of a kind and a complete masterpiece within itself! See our Instagram to see videos of the mesmerising ice-dying process!
Addison have a super high-waist shape with a thick sturdy waistband with two L&Y logo buttons for closure. Really roomy structured hips (these have been called the "magic trousers" by those with big hips and those without!) and a wide but tapered leg - long and perfect for rolling up. Two deep pockets, thick belt loops and L&Y logo on the back.
Made from thick, hardwearing, denim-weight 100% organic cotton - your new fave pair of jeans! Smart and tailored yet casual and comfy.
The beautiful Addison Silhouette is modelled on a lovely vintage pair of Jeans from Lucy's wardrobe. This means like most vintage pieces they do run a little small, we strongly advise using the measurements on our size guide when choosing which size to buy, please don't just go for your usual size, if in doubt size up.
Due to the nature of ice dye, each piece is completely unique and will differ to the individual pieces photographed.

Been looking at these type of jeans for sometime but was unsure if they would suit me as I'm slim on my hips so decided to take the plunge and get the next size up. Glad I did as they as great and love the style.
I ordered these in the first drop and they arrived a couple of days later - super speedy shipping! They were absolutely gorgeous but unfortunately just too large. I went according to the size range, and I found my waist was slightly smaller than the measurements for the W36. I thought it wouldn't be an issue as the description said they run small. When I tried them on though I found the waist was way too large and they just looked comical on me. I have returned them and plan to buy the W34 in the next drop as I'm confident they will be the correct size. So if in doubt - size down!
These jeans are so bright and lovely, someone stopped their car to ask me about them! Guaranteed to cheer up the wearers and anyone around them!
Fit is amazing, really like the shape - not too baggy but very comfy and flattering at the same time. Super colourful and each pair is unique which is always fab! Also supporting an amazing group at WAHP. Really recommend :)
I’ve always struggled to find jeans that accommodate my small waist & big hips & bum - these are literally the dream! Snug fitting on the waist & looser around the legs & bum- properly like the old school mum jeans!
