“Ships at a distance have every man’s wish on board. For some they come in with the tide. For others they sail forever on the horizon, never out of sight…” ― Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

This summer is unlike any many of us have ever experienced. Though we are spending more time at home, we are continually striving to connect to the seasons and the world around us. As we move through summer, we are excited to announce the Marine Leisure capsule collection tomorrow, July 21st. Inspired by the artistry of Lee Bontecou and Vija Celmins and the powerful words of Zora Neale Hurston, Marine is a curated assortment of our favorite stay-at-home Leisure essentials, alongside reimaged designs from the archives that are perfect for summer. In anticipation of this launch, today we share the life and works of Zora Neale Hurston, Lee Bontecou, and Vija Celmins.
