The first time I wore a Kemp Gadegaard dress was in early 2017, just months after their official launch. Ever since, it has been my go-to brand for sleek and minimal design. Kemp Gadegaard is a Berlin design studio founded by Maya B. Gadegaard and Eilis Kemp focused on functional and beautiful garments. They produce small, limited editions at their atelier in Spain, weaving environmental and socially responsible production into the core. Their latest collection, Chuparosa, will be launched with a four-day presentation starting 25.04.2019 at the Weserhalle. Collaborator and ceramicist Lucy Olivia Ambrosecchiahas hand-crafted unique pieces for this presentation as an homage to the desert, to sand and to vast open spaces. If you love clean design with attention to detail that doesn’t compromise on quality, you’ve found your home. They will also be serving up desert tunes and crisp drinks to go with their stunning pieces. (Text: Helen Amiri / Photos: Kemp Gadegaard)
