A native of Kibbutz Afikim, Lia Kes grew up in an idealistic Israeli pioneering community in northern Israel. Kes’ designs reflect her upbringing, the realities of her current life, and her vision for the future. A close look at any Kes garment reveals her meticulous attention to detail, construction, and use of high-quality materials. An even closer look offers a window into the modesty of Kes’ youth coupled with the sophistication and edginess of her modern, urban reality living in NYC. As an environmentalist, Kes focuses on sustainability and is committed to mindful production practices. KES collections are made using organic textiles, recycled materials, and plant-based dyes. This intersection of qualities allows Kes to effortlessly dress the modern woman—from day to night, beyond trends, seasons, and her ever-changing moods—and make her feel both empowered and naturally beautiful. Designed in NYC and ethically produced, Kes has a brick-and-mortar located in the Upper West Side.
“Clothing is a vehicle for expression and empowers you to manifest your beauty- both inside and out”
— Lia Kes, Owner & Designer
