1. Danner x Beckel Canvas boots

    There are only a few things that make us jealous when it comes to gear. Some people call it “gear envy”, which can be best described as a material feeling of “want” or “need” in regard to a functional product that we MUST have.

The adhered life-sized figure sketch was a magical find, and for months and years after that, I would find new Swoon pieces up on that wall. Someone even wished one of them a happy one-year birthday after it had been there for so long, perhaps Swoon herself.
