Drawing on this ancient myth for inspiration and playing upon the abstracted shape of a comb, with it’s spikes and edges, June Nineteen re-imagined the comb story into a modern folk melody.
How often in our everyday lives do we ask ourselves: should I quit or continue?
Is it around the corner or still far?
Can I get there before the dawn or will the wolf meet me on the last steps before I reach the door?
With this collection we wanted to create some sort of a pill for those who work hard but still want to keep it fun and easy.
Kind of like a perseverance potion.
Whatever you do, continue to strive and enjoy, wearing JUNE NINETEEN pieces.
