As many of you know, I don't always walk around trees and flowers all day and think up beautiful clothes. I wish! In fact, I launched Kær in early 2015 specifically as a counter-balance to the other passion in my life: the push for justice. (I suppose when it comes right down to it, there are four real passions in my life: my family, creating clothing, justice, and sailing. In that order).
To be entirely honest, I still don't really have any idea of how to live a balanced life, but I'm getting better at it. I suppose the main components are: 1) knowing what matters to me; 2) actually prioritizing those things; and 3) enjoying the process. All of those elements can be elusive, but when all else fails: breathe.
ANYWAY, where I was going with this was (partial non-sequitur) that sometimes what matters is collaboration and partnership. This month, I am particularly excited about our new partnership with Rise Sports Eyewear, a venture started by Theresa and Akbar Majeed and grounded - just like Kær - in a desire to bring the passion for arts and social justice together. We have paired up with Rise's new sub-brand RAD Eyewear to produce sunglasses that, indeed, are solidly rad. Available now!
Also, in case you missed the earlier notice, we are still running our pre-sale for yogawear, but only for another week! Get your balance on :)
