Soul Searching: Style That Delivers Moments Of Zen

Japanese vintage, priestly tunics, and talismanic jewelry make a serene combination. Enjoy these pastoral looks for the wandering soul.

 

Strongly opposing the hectic pace of life, my uber-talented fashion team created this serene, calm and collected collection. The goal was to provide readers an ethereal sensation; an exploration of otherworldly senses. We wanted to transport viewers to a place of deep zen. However, don’t let the overwhelming airiness distract you from some seriously yummy apparel, jewelry, and accessories.
