For Uniforma's second small collection we wanted to focus on the concept of "uniform" in a literal iteration. I am someone who always has a uniform. I create an outfit that I wear for a week. This might be due to working at home for over 9 years or out of laziness, either way, uniforms work well for me. For the first apparel uniform I wanted it to be blue chambray, simple and minimal, though I am sure the future ones will evolve to other styles, fabrics and patterns. The other piece I wanted was a tote bag that was functional, though extremely special which is why I teamed up with Erika who hand dyed and wove the textiles. All three pieces were made in Oakland, CA by Anthony.
Why Palm Safari? I love palm trees.
