Even though summer isn’t officially over for a few more weeks, Labor Day weekend always marks summer’s last hurrah. Sad face. But let us brighten those blues with images from Zara‘s fall campaign. With a slew of pretty floral dresses, plaid coats, power suits, and one incredible suede coat, how can you not be fired up for fall!?
I cried when I first learned of the touching story behind Chasing The Light, a historically contextual art expedition led by artist Zaria Forman. Her late mother, Rena Bass Forman, was inspired by American painter William Bradford’s 1869 expedition up the Northwest Coast of Greenland and dedicated her life to photographing this remote region. Sadly, Rena was never able to see the same voyage through. Her daughter promised to carry out the journey in her honor, scattering her mother’s ashes amongst the crackling ice diamonds of Greenland and painting the moody gray and indigo landscapes. Her stunning work made me think of everything we take for granted. A percent of all Greenland drawing sales will go to 350.org.

This summer Levi’s Vintage Clothing completely reproduced every element from its Orange Tab label. The manufacturing process happened right here in the USA exactly as it did in the 1960s and 70s. And in partnership with Cone Mills—the original producers of the Orange Tab denim —Levi’s has recreated the exact line that was the affordable alternative to the Red Tab workwear. Turn on KLVC Orange Tab Radio, put on a pair of 684 bell bottoms and let’s take a trip back to 1972.
