Margate, a local seaside town in Kent, England, is in the midst of a resurgence. It’s home to the Turner Contemporary gallery, Tracey Emin’s art school, vintage designer store Margate Gift Shop, a reoccurring Stüssy archive sale, a buffet of restaurants and homeware stores, and now, the playground for Palm Bay Skates. Founded in 2018 by the husband-and-wife duo Matthew and Sarah Tomkins, Palm Bay Skates now announces its plans for expansion, starting with a pop-up shop that will take over the foyer of the Turner Contemporary gallery.

Palm Bay Skates is known locally for its unisex garments that reference collegiate, skateboarding, and ’80s and ’90s streetwear nostalgia. All of its work is designed and made locally in Margate, and everything is cut, sewn, dyed and embroidered by hand in the brand’s workshop, using raw materials that are also sourced from the United Kingdom.

The workshop serves as Palm Bay Skates’ creative lab, but opens its doors to sell products on Fridays and Saturdays. Now, those wanting a bigger slice of the emerging brands‘ output will be able to pick up pieces featuring custom embroidery and other limited-run goods at the Turner pop-up.

Find out more about the brand on its Instagram account and head to its website to shop its collection. The Turner Contemporary pop-up will run from August 23-29.
