There's a decent chance you'll be headed on some sort of vacation before September 1. There's also a decent chance that it's gonna be a headache to get packed for said vacation. No fear, Need Supply Co. has your back. The Richmond-based boutique with a solid site has tapped indie designers Dusen Dusen, Collina Strada, and Black Crane for a summer capsule collection filled with vacation-approved basics.
From a super roomy chambray backpack to tons of separates that are begging to be paired together, this collection is all about traveling without fear or worries—at least sartorially speaking. To top it off, each designer created their own vacation diaries documenting their recent trips to Hawaii, Tulum, and Savannah. If you're feeling the vacay vibes, the collection are available in stores and online here as of today.
To coincide with the release, Need is hosting a contest. Upload a vacation inspired Insta pic with the hashtag #goexplorenow, for a chance to win a $500 dollar shopping spree, on the house. See above for inspiration. — Callia Hargrove
