Synergy has always been passionate about supporting our local community, so one year ago we teamed up with The Penny Rose, a Santa Cruz-based style blog, to create an exclusive capsule of co-designed items to be included in our Spring 2015 line. As longtime friends and mutual admirers of one another’s work it was the perfect match, blending eco-consciousness with innovative fashion.
In the early part of 2014, we met several times and together designed four items that you’ll see rolling out this season. Included in the group are two tops and two dresses. Each style has a timeless, distinct, versatile flavor. We hope you’ll enjoy our collaborative capsule as much as we did creating it.
Look for upcoming posts on our blog and on The Penny Rose blog featuring these four collaborative designs as well as a short film about the project in April on The Penny Rose and on our blog.
While this year has brought immense uncertainty, change and chaos, the turning of the wheel is always constant. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, somehow, some way, we have made it to fall. Marked by the equinox- equal day and equal night- and the shift into Libra season on September 22nd, this is the time of year where we inch inward towards ourselves, towards the shadows of solace and reflection.
2020 has been both a time and a test of our personal and collective adaptability and resilience. The pandemic has created immense loss and uncertainty for everyone that we are all still navigating through as best we can. On top of that, our Golden state and many beloved areas have been unprecedentedly burning at an alarming rate.
We are proud that Synergy has been a leader in this movement for well over a decade. At our core, Synergy is not only committed to creating clothing with a minimal environmental impact, but also empowering men and women through ethical employment practices. Our motto is “How it’s Made Matters” and we have stood by that in our practices since day one.
