A.B.Kost is the acronym of Adam Benjamin Kostner, free thinker, successful broker and keen globetrotter. When time allowed him he was always in the company of his good friend Ernest Hemingway accompanying him on his journeys, real or imaginary. Florida, Cuba, Kenya, Spain and Italy are their favorite destinations. His “motto” was: live without conformism, far from standardized clichés and imposed fashions. It may also be for this reason that his lifestyle and his way of dressing, with soft pullovers and his practical knit-polo, have influenced the most exclusive English and American circles.
And it is precisely thinking of Adam Benjamin Kostner, his philosophy of life and his way of thinking that Manifattura Italiana Srl created a new informal, "neo nomad" range of fashion and wanted to call it: A.B. KOST. A line designed for consumers who are attentive to new trends, not those of fashion or image, but those of the spirit and mind. For those who do not stop at appearances, but go further. For all those who feel a bit like Adam Benjamin Kostner. Free to be.
