Spring is here and we're happy to welcome back Kestin for their second season at Tempest Works. This Scottish brand takes inspiration from heritage outdoor styles, injected with contemporary flair for a signature style.
The brand's founder, Kestin Hare, developed his namesake label after returning home to Leith, Scotland, following a stretch working in fashion in London. We respect Kestin's business principles just as much as his designs; he values creating jobs for people in the UK, preserving and promoting craft industries, and improving our environmental and social impacts.
Kestin's SS22 collection, titled "Persevere," combines elements of classic workwear in its silhouettes and references to artwork and architecture in its patterns. As Kestin himself said, "We haven't been able to travel for inspiration, so we looked at what we have all around us - architecture, art, family. It’s not until you spend more time in an area and you take the time to really take it in and research that you appreciate what’s right under your nose."
Materials for the season range from water resistant techy blends, to lightweight cotton seersuckers, to plush fleecy wools. Each piece is as wearable as it is timeless and can stretch across seasons and purposes. Going for a light hike? Or running errands around town? Kestin SS22 has you covered for both.
