Leith Locals | Part One

Leith Locals | Part One

We assembled some of our local creative friends, collaborators and customers here in Leith, to shoot the first drop of our Spring/Summer 18 collection.

Leith’s heritage gives the area a certain character, and one constant throughout the years is the sense of community which is still very much prevalent today. Cheap rents have seen a new wave of designers and creatives moving to the area both to live and work resulting in a fast growing design-led community. Kestin's Edinburgh flagship, the Cruiser store is situated in the heart of the historic docks. The store fronts Custom Lane, a collaborative centre for design and making which comprises of a gallery, event space, workshop and studios where Hare now houses his design studio.
