Dirtbag Dreams

To put it simply, this collection is a feeble attempt at encapsulating the feeling of a life to be lived within nature. Juggling a fine line between fashion and function, these pieces masquerade themself as colorful and eclectic casual wear for a chilly night out with friends, yet at their core yearn for the adventure and thrill of the great outdoors. Born to reach the heights of Ana Purna, destined to work a 9-5 painting houses, such is the metaphor of the “Dirtbag Dream” and hence where the collection gets its name and primary inspiration. Maybe one day these garments may ascend the crammed subway rides and gridlock traffic and find themselves peaceful atop a sunny couloir or mega slab of granite, but until the day that vision becomes a reality, dream on, dirtbag.
