In terms of style, linen offers a stylish and versatile option. Its natural texture and relaxed, casual appearance contribute to a summery and effortless vibe. Including in accessories. This season, Kempton & Co threaded their linen bags with metallic, and depending on how you style them, it suits different occasions— making them a versatile choice for your summer wardrobe, wherever you go.


Linen is also sustainable style! A natural fiber derived from the flax plant, makes it an environmentally friendly choice. It’s biodegradable and has minimal impact on the environment compared to synthetic fabrics.

Whether casually draped, knotted, or wrapped, a linen stole is a versatile accessory that aligns your summer dressing with sustainability.


In summer, when temperatures rise and humidity increases, comfort is a top priority. Loose clothing provides a greater range of movement, reduces friction against the skin, and minimizes restrictions, offering a more relaxed and comfortable experience. The flowy nature of loose-fitting garments also allows for better heat dissipation, reducing the feeling of being trapped or overheated.


Last, but not least… Linen knits offer the inherent qualities of linen, including breathability, moisture-wicking, and lightweight comfort, while providing additional stretch and flexibility. With a soft and luxurious texture, linen knits are pleasant to wear against the skin. They also maintain the natural drape and relaxed aesthetic of linen, allowing for effortless and stylish summer outfits. In the form of shirts, dresses, or lightweight sweaters, linen knits combine the best of both worlds, providing the benefits of linen with the added stretch and versatility of knitted fabrics.
