Established in 2016 by founder and designer Autumn Hrubý, Hesperios produces classic knitwear and timeless ready-to-wear collections for women and men. Each garment is made to last a lifetime, produced by artisans chosen for their craftsmanship, their mindfulness of the environment, and their respect for the traditions of fine couture.
Our shop, tearoom, and garden are located in a loft-like boutique in the Soho district of New York City. Here, you will find the Hesperios collection, designer apparel and accessories, books, ceramics, and home goods—all curated by our founder. At the heart of Hesperios is our publication, Hesperios Journal: a biannual anthology of classic and contemporary art, literature, and travel.
The Hesperios flagship is the result of a loving restoration of the first floor of a nineteenth-century brick building, with contemporary additions that create a retreat-like setting. It is a gallery, a home, and a retail experience with a team dedicated to hospitality.
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. 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. We are committed to only working with factories and suppliers that do not exploit workers, animals, or the environment.
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.
