Sister-and-brother design team Nicholas and Christopher Kunz grew up in Tucson, Arizona, near an Apache reservation where they spent time as children, fishing and just being outdoors. Christopher still visits two or three times each year, and this Spring shamanism is a main source of inspiration for the duo. "We started with a smudging fan, which is used by the shaman to ward off evil sprits," Nicholas explained.

Native American themes can go politically incorrect fast, but the Kunzes' closeness to the subject kept it in check. There was a focus on draping and proportion, which played out perfectly in a women's cropped leather jacket in a color they're calling "Earth," which looked like warm-brown mud. Paired with a geo-pattern top, shorts (slightly sparkly, thanks to the "mica"-colored yarn woven through the garments), and a washed-out sweater, it delivered the ease for which the label is known. The men's looks were similarly drapey, but with a bit more of a utilitarian bent: below-the-knee black shorts looked almost like rugby pants with their oversize pockets, and loose knits were given structure when layered over collared shirts.

The collection's defining look was a long white dress with bias-cut layers that rendered it one step above a beautiful nightgown. Would a shaman wear it? Hardly. But his followers might.
