The concept of community has never been more important, especially as political and societal divisions threaten the very notion. This seasonal narrative features a modern day John Steinbeck whose emotions are heightened in these turbulent times. What is the role of heritage in today's world? Does it hark back to simpler times with fewer choices? He finds new hope in reminders of nostalgia and family. He feels comforted by imperfect surfaces that are made better with time. He seeks out high-quality items from a retail space with a general store - like atmosphere that nicely curates his style. Industrial details and pastoral silhouettes come together for a new expression of basics. Shapes and details are amplified in intensity to evoke a protective quality. As the epitome of today's pioneer, the man behind Kindred moves from chaotic city to uncharted rural territories in search of pastoral refinement and rugged character, and does it with heart and soul along the way.
