Exciting news! We’ve added four new members to our directory this month and are busy preparing for our spring lookbook. When I first dreamed up CSC, I knew it was going to be a ton of work to get our directory + conscious living tips out there, but I hadn’t thought quite as much about the day-to-day. Which is silly because I’ve managed websites for quite some time now! It’s easy to just go through the motions and forget to actually share all of the great collabs that have been going on behind the scenes, so today I wanted to take a second and introduce one of our members that we recently did a shoot in Long Beach, CA with, Los Angeles based apparel company Splendor Field.
Bringing an idea like this to life sometimes means you have to be the CEO/creative director/marketer/model AND resident email checker. Always an adventure!
Designer Noah of Splendor Field started this company in order to empower people to stand behind issues that matter. We have tremendous power as individuals, starting with the clothes we wear. Noah’s quest to find meaning in the human experience has led him from New York to Buenos Aires to Tel Aviv, and from digital art to music and now, apparel. This experience has led him to design apparel and accessories along the theme of collective responsibility.
When I found out about Noah’s brand, my first question was what type of message he hoped his clothing would put across. The messages printed on each piece are bold, and I wondered how people would interpret things statements like “unlearn division”. Once we chatted more about this collective responsibility and our shared belief that fashion can be better utilized as a catalyst for change, I started to realize that sometimes bold statements, the kind that really serve to make you think, are all you need to get the conversation started.
Now I totally think of Splendor Field’s products like conversation cards: they serve to launch a discussion about conscious living, whether it’s in regard to ethical fashion, social change, or sustainability. Imagine the dialogue that would take off if we all wore our thoughts on today’s biggest issues, essentially on our sleeves. It’s a wonderful and terrifying thought.
