My dear friend and official Kule photographer, Mei Tao, recently went on a trip to Havana, Cuba. She went there for work and to take pictures using the colorful and historic backdrop of Havana. When she retuned she told me she discovered the artist, Kamyl Bullaudy Rodriguez, while painting in his studio. His doors were open, the light was perfect, and his studio contained a treasure trove of a man’s life’s work. She spoke with him and fell in love with his personality and his paintings. She offered him a Kule men’s stripe shirt in return for a photo of him in his colorful work space. He was thrilled and grateful. Mei ended up purchasing a few of his artworks to take back to New York. This is the beauty of travel, to discover and meet interesting people around the world and sometimes magical moments like these happen.
Stripes have always been my go to item for a cool, casual, and put together look. When I am rushed to get ready in the morning, I always reach for a stripe and it never fails me. When worn with classics like a motorcyle Jacket or a trench coat, and denim is when it is truly timeless look. My wardrobe mantra, stripes are always a good idea.

KULE STRIPE SHIRT EDITORIAL
We just shot the new KULE stripes editorial and look book images with photographer Mei Tao. I love how the Tevas look in the images. They remind me of the time I visited my sister at The University of Vermont where it seemed to be a uniform staple there. Tevas are fresh again and great to pair with the KULE stripe shirts (coming soon). Also, they are so freaking comfortble. I mean, come on; it feels like you’re walking on air. Recently, I am seeing a lot of fancy versions from several designers, such as Marni, Alexander Wang, and Flamingos, but none are as good as the original. Tevas rule and so does KULE!
