Kevin Harman is a Scottish based contemporary artist whose work spans a diverse range of media, platforms and performance. Flitting between his studios in Edinburgh and Glasgow, he creates work underscored by a commitment to understanding the fabrics of his pieces. This symbiotic relationship with materials forms an integral aspect of Kevin’s practice.
We were delighted to invite Kevin to take part in our AW23 campaign which we shot on a beautifully brisk day on Scotland's East Coast.
Kevin wears AW pieces from brands such as Valstar, Inis Meáin, Casey Casey, Arpenteur, and Begg & Co.
Casey Casey Crew Neck Open Rib Sweater. Beautiful open rib crew neck with drop sleeves in a dense merino wool. It has the feel of a modern fisherman’s sweater in a sumptuous colour, deep dark green. Made in Italy.
Inis Meáin's oversized Beairtini is coupled here with Valstar's Shearling Jacket. This combination makes for an exceptionally warm and practical pairing, blending fabrics and textures utilised for their insulating qualities. Together, they are ideal for layering to protect from the chill of crisp autumn days.
Inis Meáin (the middle island), is part of the Aran Islands situated off the west coast of Ireland. The dramatic coastal landscape is home to Inis Meáin Knitting Company who continue the island's knitting traditions which date back centuries. Creating styles that reflect the unique island environment, each Inis Meáin piece is part of the island's heritage.
Valstar are known for their iconic outerwear and meticulous attention to detail. Each garment is hand-stitched in their Milan workshops and only the finest and functional fabrics are used. Every piece crafted to last a lifetime, accompanying the wearer on any adventure.
