Sometimes I day dream about taking a squeegee to my brain and wiping away all the layers of gunk that are clouding my creative output. I want a palate cleanser for my brain. An ability to see and look at things the way a child would look at them without years of clutter (i.e. life) clouding what I see.

I think this fashion editorial is the equivalent of that squeegee.

And it couldn’t come at a better time, on the cusp of summer, when everyone wants to hit refresh on their wardrobes. We want easy clothes that allow us to move so we can focus on breathing in that salty sea air. There’s no better material to help us embrace the child-like wonder of summer than cotton poplin.

Crisp Cotton Poplin

Cotton poplin is both light and breathable while remaining crisp and sturdy. The opportunities for design are endless and the pieces speak for themselves.

Videographer, Taylor Hang.

That’s why, Jessi (a stylist who we work with often), styled these pieces as modern and minimalist, she knows that quality speaks louder than quantity.

Alice was able to capture a spontaneity and lightness in movement that I think we all feel whenever our feet touch the beach.

The only thing more squeegee gratifying than a new cotton poplin piece in my wardrobe is a trip to the beach. I think my pulse immediately slows down upon seeing that horizon line when the grandeur of the ocean puts everything in perspective.
