Hesperios is a ready-to-wear brand dedicated to classic knitwear and timeless collections for women and men; a biannual literary and art journal; and a shop, tea room, and garden located in Soho New York City.
Hesperios began as a way of combining Autumn Hrubý’s passion for journalism, publishing, and the preservation of craftsmanship and cultural heritage. With the help of a creative community of like-minded individuals, Hesperios Journal was born. Since its first issue in 2016, the Journal has been a community space for our collaborators and for the people and ideas that inspire us. From this creative centre of the Hesperios process, the brand has grown.
For the Hesperios Collection, Hrubý’s original goal was simple: to create the perfect unisex sweater in a variety of unique colors. Several years of development resulted in our beloved signature Fårö sweater.
The reaction from our community and industry was overwhelming—the Fårö was a resounding success. Out of this, an elegant and timeless knitwear brand has grown, and in the spring of 2016, Hrubý released her first first core collection of knitwear, inspired by the landscape and history of Gotland, Sweden. From these essential wardrobe classics, worn season after season, our range of women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories has grown. Hesperios premiered its first full collection one year later in spring, 2017.
Hesperios makes quality, long-lasting products, manufactured in New York City, Los Angeles, and Lima, Peru. We are committed to only working with factories and suppliers that do not exploit workers, animals, or the environment.
With a focus on fine yarns and fabrics sourced from Italy and Peru, Hesperios produces each collection using the finest baby alpaca wool, cashmere, silk, and pima cotton. Two seasons a year, a luxurious range of chic and playful silhouettes are presented in unique, delicate, and nature-inspired color palettes.
Hesperios Journal is an indispensable resource for readers who care about living well, and for whom literature, art, and travel are essential to their daily routine. Each issue presents works by both celebrated and emerging artists, a number of which have collaborated with us on limited editions for both our online and brick-and-mortar shop. The journals are distributed internationally through art and design book stores, galleries, newsstands, museums, and boutiques. Published out of the Hesperios flagship here in New York City, the Journal is designed and printed in Sweden.
