Hesperios is a high-end, ready-to-wear collection for women and men; a biannual journal of literature and culture; and a shop and café located in New York City.
The Hesperios process began in 2004. From the outset, Autumn Hrubý’s heart was set on journalism, the publishing of art books, and the preservation of craftsmanship and cultural heritage. In the development of many years, and with the help of a creative community of like-minded individuals, Hrubý drew these passions together. The result was Hesperios Journal: a community space for our collaborators and for the people and ideas that inspire us, first published in 2016.
With the journal at the center of our creative process, Hesperios has grown. The Hesperios Collection was born from Hrubý’s desire to create an elegant and timeless knitwear brand, beginning with that most iconic of knitwear staples: the sweater. Hrubý’s goal was simple: to create the perfect unisex sweater in a variety of unique colors to serve as the foundation of each collection.
Several years of development resulted in our beloved signature Fårö sweater. In the Spring of 2016, Hrubý released her first knitwear collection, inspired by the landscape and history of Gotland, Sweden.
The reaction from our community and industry was overwhelming—the Fårö was a resounding success. In response, Hesperios premiered its first full collection one year later in Spring, 2017. From these essential wardrobe classics, worn season after season, the Hesperios range of women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories has grown.
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. Four seasons a year, a luxurious range of chic and playful silhouettes are presented in unique, delicate and nature-inspired color palettes.
