The story first began when founder, eco-explorer and globally recognised hairstylist Leigh Keates became aware of the world’s plastic problem whilst canoeing down the Amazon River and co-habiting with local communities.
His concern escalated in 2017, when he sailed to Antarctica, after which Leigh was moved to do something about the fact that single-use plastic is destroying the ocean and marine life. There and then, he decided to launch an eco-conscious lifestyle range, which he coined THALASSOPHY.
Thalas – sophy
Ocean – Philosophy
Over the following two years, Leigh went to work designing his first ever collection, keeping in mind a time on holiday, surrounded by peers with perfect bodies. Leigh wanted to ensure his range allowed for fellow THALASSOPHER’s to be able to stand out in a crowd but remain modest.
With his modern take on 1950’s cabana sets, Leigh introduces Thalassophy with ‘Capsule collection 1.0’ paying homage to the twin-set heritage, adapting classic prints to sit comfortably alongside current trends including delicate brushstrokes in pistachio, sky and mustard, and a navy-backed swirling floral design, a nod to William Morris.
