Some believe that we are constantly coming to terms with our modern world, separated so far from where we came generations ago, when we were closer to nature, when the background was quieter, when work was connected to the land, when music was the wind, when entertainment was each other.

We wear that because it makes us feel this way, we believe ourselves to be a certain something and so we dress a certain way, we want people to understand who we think we are and so we show them through our clothing, expressing without words, letting our exterior translate what is going on inside our interior. This editorial plays on the idea that we are all striving to be grounded, working towards being less complicated and more connected to our roots.
