Excited to launch the next 30 year collab with a brand that is way more than just a brand to us. Noah is more like family to us, not just like family, they are family. Brendon and I have been good friends since 1996 and Estelle and Beth have been friends since around that time too. Fast forward we have grown into one big happy family so it was really important for Noah to be a part of this celebration. We are calling this collection: “Truth Dare Dream.” DARING to ask “Was Beethoven Black?” DREAMING of a world where Shakespeare could share her prolific works as her true self without fear of ridicule and backlash due to the prevailing misogyny. And highlighting the TRUTH of Dumas, who was a French, but whom’s father was Haitian and mixed. Through these designs we wanted to have poke fun but we also wanted to be able to do so while also reminding people of the marginalized histories of countless people we will never know because they were born a woman, or black or gay at the wrong place or the wrong time. As a part of the programing for this collection, we teamed up with and we are donating proceeds of sales to them.
As a part of the programing for this collection, we teamed up with Watts Conservatory of Music and we are donating proceeds of sales to them. This organization is going above and beyond to make sure to offer better access to the arts within communities and families that otherwise wouldn’t be so fortunate to have programs like this.
The genesis of creation around Union 30 year anniversary Noah collaboration was an article we came across that asked the question, "Was Beethoven Black?" The theory is based in large part on his features that largely resembling African features. The theory goes on to speculate that his Flemish ancestors married Spanish “Blackmoors.” It got us to thinking about other possible historical figures who might have been People of Color and other marginalized populations who due to historical oppression may have had to repress their true identities and hide who they really were in order to survive.
