I met Shon back in 2013 (just after we launched) during my visit to Hawaii through a mutual friend of ours. It was here I fell in love with his work and decided that we had to collaborate!
Just a couple of months later, Shon designed our first ‘Permanent Vacation’ garment and was the original pocket print tee.
