LADY OF THE DUNES

SO, ITS BEEN A WHILE.

OVER A YEAR, TO BE PRECISE, (AND THE SPIRIT OF A NEW YEAR CALLS FOR TAKING STOCK AND ACCOUNTABILITY), SINCE WE'VE WRITTEN ABOUT OUR ADVENTURES IN THIS LITTLE SPACE OF OURS. 

SORRY FOR BEING THE WORST. 

LOTS HAS HAPPENED OVER HERE, WE MOVED TO A BEAUTIFUL NEW WORK SPACE IN RED HOOK, WE'VE GROWN OUR LITTLE TRIBE AND JUST FINISHED OUR NEW COLLECTION FOR MODA OPERANDI, HERE.

THE WHOLE COLLECTION IS BLUE AND WHITE, AND FEATURES ALL OF OUR FAVORITE THINGS: SOFT CHAMBRAYS AND INDIGOS, FABRIC CORDS AND HAND TIED KNOTS AND OF COURSE, JUMPSUITS. AND, WE INTRODUCED A NEW PIECE, WHATS POSSIBLY OUR FAVORITE THING WE'VE EVER MADE, A CAFTAN CALLED THE DUNE. WHICH BRINGS US TO OUR LATEST ADVENTURE OUTSIDE OUR STUDIO WALLS:

WE WERE LIKE, 100% NOT FEELING THE CITY SLUSH FOR CHRISTMAS. SO WE DID A HOP SKIP AND A JUMP AND LANDED IN THE CALIFORNIA DESERT. ANXIOUS TO SHOW THE DUNE AROUND, WE DROVE FOR A LITTLE.

DUNE IS MADE FROM THE SOFTEST INDIAN COTTON AND HAND BLOCK PRINTED WITH A SACRED CALF. IF AN EDWARDIAN NIGHTGOWN AN INDIAN DASHIKI GOT TOGETHER, SHE WOULD BE THEIR LOVECHILD.

THE LANDSCAPE FELT LIKE SOMETHING OUT OF THE LITTLE PRINCE, DESOLATE AND DRY AND BEAUTIFUL WITH A CERULEAN SKY. WE DO ALWAYS TRY AND MATCH THE SKY.
