Zebra teams up with Kastel Denmark
Offering a range of functional clothing items that include protection from the elements, the Kastel Denmark range also ticks the box in terms of fashion, durability and comfort.
Danish rider Charlotte Jorst founded the collection after she saw a gap in the marketplace for easily available and affordable sun-protective outerwear. Having been affected by the harmful results of sun exposure, Charlotte decided that her new venture would focus on the active individual with emphasis on ultra violet protection in many of the designs and product categories – starting with the launch of the ‘Charlotte Collection’ shirts. This focus has evolved into winter designs in luxurious Merino wool, fleece zips and much more.
“My vision for Kastel Denmark is a beautifully designed active-wear line that protects like a fortress (Kastel means fortress in Danish) against the elements, while eliminating the guesswork of dressing for multiple activities,” said Charlotte.
“Whether your sport of choice is golf, tennis, running, biking or equestrian, Kastel Denmark will ensure that you are protected and fashion forward. Our lives are busy and so I hope people who wear Kastel feel happy, comfortable, protected and most importantly – beautiful.”
Simon Middleton, managing director of Zebra Products, the exclusive UK distributor for Kastel Denmark, said: “Consumers are increasingly looking for added value from their products and clothes are no different. Charlotte’s concept and creativity captured us and we’re excited to be working with the brand here in the UK and are sure that the collection is going to be a big hit.”
Kastel Denmark won the BETA International 2015 Innovation Award in the category Rider Clothing.
