Newly-minted national monuments Castern Range in West Texas and Avi Kwa Ame in southern Nevada stand as unique expressions of Southwestern landscape.
In the same way that strata layers plait together mountains, so does fashion build to create the layers of our self-expression. The favorites in our closets are pieces that make it easy to portray who we are. Designer-duo Lenka and Carsten Rundholz design clothing to do just that.
Each Rundholz creation moves between form and function, such as this woven tee with varied cap sleeves and visible seams in a nuanced formation. Their Spring/Summer 2023 collection presents exaggerated silhouettes, oversized pockets, translucent plaids and abstract checkered fabrics that tread between durable and delicate.
This latest delivery offers yet another suite of nonconformity and whimsy. The experimental construction and creative shaping suggest an ease of self-expression. Lenka and Carsten reimagine the plaid shirt, knit dress and denim jacket without judgment on the traditions of those garments. Like the mountains of the Castern Range and Avi Kwa Ame, Rundholz’s singular nature rings out for all to see.
