Thy Origins’ summer collection

"It's Okay To Be Different" Summer Collection – 2018 • To everyone who might be reading this — you're cut from a different cloth. • For this year's summer collection, we're giving you a reminder that nothing is more precious than our own identity. We dedicate this release to everyone comfortable in their own skin, as well as help everyone who's struggling to, to realize that it's okay not to be like the rest. • It's not necessary to follow each and every wave… Create your own. It can get big. Bigger than the waves in the Bahamian Ocean, stronger than the currents up in the Italian Coast. As nothing will ever be more sweeter this summer, than feeling the warm sand on your feet, eyes on the exhilarating sunset, palm trees cooling down the ocean's breeze before it hits your skin, while knowing they don't make them like you anymore. • Always know you're 1 of 1. IT'S OKAY TO BE DIFFERENT. • NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE!!!
