Run by Natalia Barros Vives as Design Director and Shope Delano as CEO, we are co-creative directors of Spanish and Nigerian heritage.
As a seasoned designer with a multidisciplinary approach, Natalia interprets the world visually - speaking through fabric, form, and function. Shope, a brand strategist and internet-native, finds strength in storytelling. Conversations, community and commerciality shape her outlook.
Founded in 2022, we’re based in London and collaborate with responsible suppliers across Portugal, Italy and Japan.
what we think
Work extends beyond the professional. It’s the personal, the interpersonal, the political.
Life is work. And it’s ever-evolving.
The demands of daily life are constantly growing and shifting. Navigating them, with ease and joy, requires one very simple idea.
Self-definition. Read the viral open letter that started it all here.
what we do
We’re on a mission to create a wardrobe for life’s work, and document its realities through honest conversations.
Our garments are defined by versatility. We design with fluidity for work, life and everything in between.
Our conversations are led by curiosity. We ask people from all walks of life one big question - what works for you? - and document their answers.
how we do it
We’re inspired by simplicity - and the infinite possibilities that arise from it. We, as individuals, bring garments to life through our bodies and routines.
We work exclusively with deadstock fabrics, using pre-orders to manage waste and overproduction.
Community is not a ‘buzzword’ but our foundation - we were born out of and continue to be nurtured by our friends of kr.
