Our Fall | Winter 2020 Collection welcomes stillness + embodies this feeling of striving to stay grounded. What is being grounded? "Being grounded means that you're present in your body + connected with the earth. When you're grounded, you allow yourself to feel centered and balanced no matter what's going on around you."
-------
In a simplistic sense, being grounded feels like you are a tree -- deeply rooted, centered + still. When you are grounded [like a tree] the windstorm doesn't influence/ affect you. However, when you are not grounded, you feel like a leaf -- vulnerable, flooded + thrown off.
