Carri

2019

Carri is always on the run—trying to catch the bus, trying to make it to work on time, she is always running late. She needs clothing that is easy, quick, and efficient. Getting hung up on what to wear is not an option in her world. But at the same time, Carri isn’t going to settle for the run of the mill—even if she needs a garment to just ‘throw on’ it has to be comfortable, stylist, perfectly fit, with deep pockets and a great texture to enjoy throughout the day.
