DESIGNER

August is founded in 2014 by an Estonian designer Äli Kargoja (Studio Bercot, Paris), who after gaining experience in the ateliers of Nicolas Andreas Taralis (Paris) and Maison Martin Margiela (NYC) returned to her home country, Estonia to go forward with
her vision of designing clothes

August is a clothing brand combining natural materials with innovative design.

Harmony between comfort, practicality, and style is the main concept behind the design process. Construction of clean forms, refined lines, and silent expression embody these collections which are suitable for anyone appreciating elegant clothes as well as sustainability in clothing design. Of particular importance is the careful choice
of materials and attention to each step of the manufacturing process.

Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified fabric mills and sustainable fabric fairs
are the cornerstone of our fabric sourcing.

All styles are produced in Estonia.

AW 2017 COLLECTION

The inspiration for the Autumn/Winter 2017 collection came from the 90s silhouettes and tomboy charm. The brand continues to use unique and carefully chosen sustainable fabrics, while all the items have been designed and produced in Estonia.
 
August’s fifth collection was inspired by oversized shapes, sportswear elements and the silhouettes of the 90s, which the designer effortlessly shaped into a chic collection. An elaborated selection of collar shirts in a narrow color pallet of black and white add a geometric strictness to the collection to continue Augusts minimal approach to constructing clothes. Fabrics range from different variations of black bamboo and certified organic cotton, to greenish blue organic velour, denim, lambswool and organic cotton jersey in a shade of henna.
