SANDSTORM

This SS19 collection developed as a meditative project, reflecting on the over saturation of imagery and news, the over stimulation and over consumption present in our busy daily routine. I had a desire to go back to basics – to appreciate simplicity and order. Using a neutral palette, garments combine the calmness of linens and raw silks with military references and utilitarian details. This army resists today’s chaotic and uncertain social, political, and environmental climate. Waterproof coated linens and large cargo pockets remind us, in these uncertain times, to always be resourceful, always prepared, always be ready.
