Up (K)north


I need a lot of balance in my life. I'm a Gemini, so I'm always torn by opposites. I want a secluded house in the woods on a river, but I also want to live near a metropolis where all of the finer things are within reach.
I'm a fairly simple dress-er. You won't find me in too many patterns or with too many accessories, and unless the occasion absolutely demands otherwise, you better believe I'm going to be comfortable.

I might be biased but I'd like to think that Washington has the best of all worlds. There is something for everyone from the rugged outdoorsman to the hip, high-rise condo dweller, and you can definitely be both. So I like to have a wardrobe that can take me from one to the other. I want to be able to go on that hike near Mt. Rainier, and then come back to the city and have a beer with my friends, and maybe only have to change my shoes. 

Up Knörth gets it. They are a Canadian company (so they understand the beauty of living in the PNW) who wants to reflect the simplicity of nature in the simple, natural design of their clothes. Their clothes are practical, and I still feel like I'm in tune with my style when I'm wearing them.

We strive to reclaim the honesty of how life used to be.
