C / Hey NAU..hey NAU


Hi guys. Tiff and I will be doing gift guides again this year (starting tomorrow, yay!) but I have found so many great companies while looking for the lists, I feel like I have to share a few more. If there is something that you want to buy, but you don’t know how to get the sustainable version of it yet, email me, and I will find it for you and put it on the internet.

The first company that I am looking at is NAU, out of Portland, Oregon. “Of course it’s from Portland” you say, “does it come with irony and a bird on it?” Good one, you. This awesome company came together a few years ago and they are making high quality technical gear out of sustainable and renewable materials. The clothing sells for about the same amount as their buddies’ stuff at North Face, but they do business in a very different way. NAU uses fabrics like alpaca wool, organic cotton, recycled polyester, and my personal textile crush, Tencel. They also work alongside international human rights monitoring groups to ensure their international production facilities meet high standards.

These are some of my favorite pieces from their current collection, and if you want to buy them for me, that is totally fine and in no way inappropriate.

C / Emma and Zady

I love a good collaboration. I love it even more when it involves one of my favorite public figures and one of my favorite companies. Emma Watson and Zady have come together to promote ethical and sustainable fashion and are currently launching their collaborative collection. So far, there are only three pieces available to pre-order, but they are solid. The shiny-objects side of my brain was hoping for more items, but they are staying true to the less-is more principle, and focusing on three timeless pieces you can wear forever.

Hermoine Granger  Emma Watson has been a badass since she was like 6, and I have a ton of respect for her for using her fame-powers for good, and generally choosing to be an awesome person in an industry that does not require that of her. This collection is anther example of her pushing forward businesses that are doing things the right way, and proving what a Gryffindor she is.

T / uniform, vol.1 (new series!)

This one has been a long time coming.  We are constantly surrounded by the most talented, smartest, wonderful women.  Seriously, Phnom Penh is a cool lady town.  And they’re stylish to boot, bringing pieces together from all the places they’re from, are currently, or have been.  I wanted to capture all of this on my camera and make it a monthly feature while I’m at it.  Every outfit is a winner, so let the uniform games begin!

WWWW---Julia-Header--4Julia’s one of the wonderful people we are so lucky to be friends with in Phnom Penh.  In reverse chronological order: she’s one of the bestest jewelry models, she shot the heck out of Cait’s first show (here, here, here, and here), she directs the bejeesus out of the communications department for a local organization that helps people in southeast Asia access clean water, and before her move to Asia, she was a producer for Canada’s national public broadcaster (our NPR to my American friends).  Also, she’s from Toronto.  Need I say more?

Uniform123I see Julia pretty much every work day morning in a week.  We’ll just have finished some crazy early workout, and I’ll emerge out of the locker room, as quickly as possible,  in whatever I decided was clean and borderline viable for the office, with my hair all over the place.  But Julia, a few minutes later, will saunter out in her typically super happy post-workout cheer looking absolutely perfect in what could only be described as the perfect uniform.  I couldn’t help but notice how put together she is, while still carrying some bright or fun element (check out that Khmer Creations necklace fashioned out of a spoon!), and always bicycle ready (which also means uber comfortable).  Each outfit always looks really light while also fitting her so well. Her pieces come from all over, some skinny fit pants from back home, tailored pieces from Phnom Penh, very cute flats and bags from Chatuchak Market, the list goes on.  So naturally, I had to shoot the heck out of her.  And that’s exactly what we did for a week this past month.


Thank you Julia for being our inaugural Uniform model!  Check back next month to see who I capture next!


PS: 8am light is amazing!
