A Tribute To Elegance

Through Robert Kerr I wish to pay tribute to values of the one who taught me to love and respect materials, to focus on excellence and fine craftsmanship.

Robert Kerr is an adventure to the height of elegance, an experience entirely dedicated to emotion, the guarantor of unique designs and sublimating noble materials: vintage silks in warm tones, cashmere in unique and exclusive patterns…

The “Made with Kerr” collections of accessories have been designed with a touch of English classicism, a hint of sprezzatura, referring to Italian “nonchalance”, which wavers between grace, perfection and refinement. The handmade (fabric cutting and hand rolling, fibre extraction) quality establishes itself as an authentic trademark and displays the extraordinary craftsmanship:  boot-makers, gilders using bronze custom-made moulds to gild and print Robert Kerr’s logo on unique leather labels, pearly buttons exclusively engraved for the collection of 3 and even 7-fold ties…

The luxury & perfection of Robert Kerr are infused through this dedication to detail

Thomas Drischel Co founder of Robert Kerr

About A Family Story

In 2013 Thomas Drischel left his position as General Manager of the department store Galeries Lafayette to fulfill a lifelong dream: to bring his own personal touch to men’s and women’s style and elegance. By creating Robert Kerr, a brand dedicated to luxury accessories (ties, scarves, squares…), Thomas rejuvenates a refinement inherited from his grandfather Robert Kermabon (1921-2009).

In the 1950’s this former sailor who was always keen to explore new avenues and meet others, decided to follow a career as a master tailor in the prestigious house of Hogg’s & Son located at 35 Sackville Street, just 2 streets from the famous Savile Row, and was determined to dedicate his life to sublimate fine cloth designed for demanding gentlemen.

Throughout his life he shared his passion for style, noble materials and his precious craftsmanship with his grandson, whom he introduced to tailoring. He never dreamed that the latter would create the brand Robert Kerr half a century later, demonstrating that luxury and elegance are synonymous with authenticity, passion and tradition.
