Last week my friends stylist Alyse Franco and Artist/Creative Director Sonia Beyda quickly styled and shot a look book with model Camilla Bianchi for Sonia’s new line of Non-organic embroidered leisurewear line STILL HERE. The line is quickly catching fire because of its quick wit and cool vibes. I mean, on the night of the infamous second debate – Sonia created “Hillary’s Fly” shirt – which is now shipping out in time for our impending doom. Her line of T(it) Shirts were created to raise money for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Sonia also creates one off pieces of denim that are ridiculously cool. My personal favorite are the “I hope apple doesn’t sue me sweat shirt” since that spinning color wheel is more familiar to me than my own kid’s faces, and I beyond love the Sad Flowers as well.
In Sonia’s own words:
Still Here was created in May 2016. I took a selfie in the bathroom mirror at Brooklyn College everyday for practically 4 years, with the text: “Still Here.” Once I graduated with a philosophy and art degree (basically no job) and was no longer “there,” I felt pretty attached to the tradition and following I had built to this very relatable 3 o’ clock feeling of “Still Here.” I began sketching some ideas and slowly was able to build a small collection of embroidered leisurewear. Everything is made in the US. Not organic and not non GMO.
For the month of October, we made the T(it) Shirt in 4 shades of pink. Proceeds are going to a local charity organization called: New York Cancer Center (www.nycancercenter.org/)
