I’m back! Again, I believe it’s important to take periodical breaks…this time though, it’s because I made my second annual pilgrimage to that thing in the desert, Burning Man. It’s always so tough and awesome in all the best ways, and I’m thankful to have made it back for a second time. I feel freshly inspired and ready to take on life again in a positive light. However, that could all take up a whole separate post (maybe one of these days I’ll do that, but I am not big on talking about me). One of the things festivals (even though Burning Man is not exactly one) and events like this do is separate me from the mainstream commercial world and make me appreciate the individual artists more when I totally thought I couldn’t. There’s no shortage of art at Burning Man as I’m sure most of you know, but there is no commerce (for a good reason). Still though, it focuses me even more on how tough it really is for those trying to express their talents and make a difference in the world. There’s no WiFi or cell service out there so it really is disconnecting (and I love it), so it’s always interesting to get back and catch up on what is going on in the “default” world. I was excited when I got back to see one of my all time, top favorite brands has released their new seasonal line! So without much more ado about myself and my personal exploits, I’m stoked to say the new Nomads Hemp Wear Fall/Winter 2019 Collection is here.
If you’ve been following me for long enough, I’m sure you’ve noticed several constants in terms of favorite brands and brand partnerships. Nomads Hemp Wear has been a longtime favorite and I’m grateful to be able to share them with you every season and highlight my favorite pieces. Ethical and sustainable style is known to be more on the pricey side (usually for good reason), and it’s unfortunate for those who mean well but have small budgets. However, this Canadian brand has found a way to make everything accessible…of course, we’re not talking Forever 21 prices here, but everything is priced so well for their do-good nature and superb quality. Everything I own from them has stood up through numerous washes and wears, and still looks like new after many years. One of the things that also stands out to me is the fact that everything they create bridges the gap between festival and everyday street style, and their creative license is so modestly unique and easy to style! My closet is slowly but surely filling up with mostly goods from them.
Every season, Nomads Hemp Wear releases a handful of beautiful new items, but they also build off their existing short-run stock. This means, if you missed something you loved from the previous season, chances are they will revive it for the next with new colorways. I’m totally on board with this! There are several pieces I grabbed later on after I saw them for the first time…and believe me, you’ll also be thankful as I’m sure you’ll want everything they have. For the Nomads Hemp Wear Fall/Winter 2019 collection, there are several new jackets, tops, pants and leggings and much more. However, I’m happy to also see they’ve brought back one of my favorite items, the Revelation Tunic, in a beautiful red and black design! If you remember, I reviewed this piece two seasons ago. One item that is always coming back are the beautiful Axiom leggings, which have been reworked into a super soft bamboo version (I have a soy version from years ago). I could go on and on…and on—everything is so awesome! But, I’ll let these photos from the Nomads Hemp Wear Fall/Winter 2019 collection do the talking for me.
