A BEAUTIFUL STORY

The KEIT Group

The KEIT Group was born from the convergence of three different sensibilities, brought together by their pronounced taste for luxury hotels and iconic brands.

Jean-François Keit, formerly a designer for Yves Saint -Laurent and the style agency Martine Le Herpeur, is driven by his passion for style and his determination to be a part of the renewal of aesthetic codes.

With Laure de Saint Hippolyte, offspring of the art world and driven by her entrepreneurial spirit, they founded the Keit Group in 2001. Together, they took on the luxury hotel industry and won the confidence of the Ritz Hotel, their first contract. Twenty years later, the Keit Group is still at the service of palaces and luxury hotels.

In 2009, Catherine Jarrige joined the duo. Seduced by their daring and their esthetic sense, this former journalist was instrumental in structuring the group with the creation of two new brands: Chic at Work and Cabiola, all dedicated to spas, beauty and well-being.

Driven by this audacious spirit, the trio is leading its team toward some major projects.
