When I first came into contact with Upstate a few years ago it was an instant love affair with a shibori-dyed kimono. It's one of those pieces I can't wear every day because it's a definite statement, but whenever I wear it I am always asked where it came from. These are the kind of pieces Upstate has become known for.
Upstate is designed by Kalen Kaminiski in Brooklyn who has made a name for herself by revitalizing traditional processes and pairing them with a modern sensibility. Upstate designs are always vibrant in color, effortless in silhouette, and contain shapes and materials which transition seamlessly from a day in nature to a night in the city. It's made for the "spirited, confident, and adventurous women of the world."
Upstate apparel is made in the USA.
It's almost hard to put into words how much we love this raglan. First off, it's buttery soft—a sweatshirt you'll want to sleep in as much as you'll want to wear out on the town with a pair of white jeans. It's a cotton-blend that has been dyed by Upstate designer Kalen Kaminiski in her studio in Brooklyn, NY.
A note on color: the purple tones are more of a true plum than a rust.
