WIND + WINGS
[read_more] The 1970’s A decade that conjures the memory of so many idle hours spent in total abandon; the warmth of the sun and the magic of twilight lingering with kindred spirits in the halcyon days of summer.

Exploring didn’t come with warnings and societal fears. Strangers weren’t ominous. Sex wasn’t roulette. Gender role wasn’t codified. We played, untamed and unhindered, as music from car windows and city low-rises mingled in the heat waves.
The MUSES come from that music. We fell in love again with Stevie Nicks and Deborah Harry.
Stevie bathed in golden light that plays so well in the heat of the day with her free flowing, breezy clothes. Fleetwood Mac blasting from cars headed toward the beach piled high with friends all singing along with no restraint.
While the night belongs to Deborah with slinky clothes and punk bleached hair and edgy riffs punctuating disco beats. Dancing on and on. Hot and cool.
our MATERIALS Textures permeate our leathers from soft nubuks to retro sporty perfs, summer jute, and worn, wrinkled lamb. The palette is a study of contrasts; with heat colors, deep ocean hues, soothing pastels all set off by a strong showing of vegetable tanned black, classic cuoios, and white.
The SILHOUETTES offer the same playful diversity in the ‘70’s vernacular. Bold, contemporary heels and platforms sit with clean wedges, easy flats and statement sandals. Abstracted wood heels and chunky cork bottoms contrast with fresh white sport soles and espadrille sneaker shapes.

Peace, love, rock + roll,
