Nature Fashion

This season’s collection has an improvised look about it, as do our non-catwalk models (they’ll be the first to admit it).

From log clogs to palm hula-hulas, we use what we find and cobble it into something to wear. The fashionistas say it’s anti-cool, anti-hip, but very this year. We say it’s fun and we hope it rubs off on you. You never know, together, we might even pioneer a trend.
