"For once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return. "
-Leonardo Da Vinci
Our fall collection is inspired by New York City and Paris. In particular, we wanted to juxtapose the historical art and architecture of Paris with that of New York. We were inspired by places such as St. Mark's Cathedral because of its' neo-gothic architecture and its location in between modern skyscrapers and across from Lee Lawrie's Atlas statue.
We were also inspired by gothic blackletter typography which was popular in the medieval times. We liked the detailing in each letter and the bold use of the color black.
We were also inspired by New York's street graffiti. Many people tag on almost any surface imaginable in New York and it's something the city has become famous for.
We believe inspiration and research is a very important part of the creative process. It's where we develop and cultivate the mood of the collection and provides a basis for us to design into. We'll share more inspirations along the way. In the mean time, be the best you-you can be. Conquer your world.
