A Moment in Repose: The Winter Solstice Through Time
by Leigh Patterson
December 21 marks the Winter solstice — both the official first day of winter and the shortest day and longest night of the year.
Historically, the solstice represents the transition into a season of introspection, an organic slowing down — coinciding with the end of the calendar year, it’s a primordial marker for the pause that exists between an end and a new beginning... a moment to take inventory of the present and set intentions before the start of a new cycle.
With this transition in mind we found ourselves looking to references in history, art, and architecture from around the world, each grounded in acknowledging and yielding to the cycles and systems that unite us.

A Moment of Pause
In this unique and challenging time we are taking a pause - a moment to reflect on the people who make the existence of our company possible. Our staff, our suppliers, cutters and sewers, the stores that we work with, and you, the customer: we pause to share gratitude for all of the individuals that make our work both feasible and worthwhile.
We understand that this moment has challenged all of us to consider what is important to us, which is why the support you have shown us at this time has been especially valued. It is important to us that you feel cared for in return, and we therefore welcome any dialogue you’d like to share - questions about a specific part of our supply or production chain, why a particular design decision was made, or even thoughts about what you’d like to see from the brands you shop right now. At this moment of reflection, we think it’s imperative to keep the conversation going.
Our intention is to continue to create clothing that feels meaningful - items that are comfortable, practical and timeless, constructed for longevity and with care in mind towards each of the individuals that contributed to produce each piece.
We thank you for allowing us to continue in this mission.
