This collection is intended to embody a common ground for like-minded individuals; it is a lifestyle as opposed to simply a brand or fashion label — a way of life inspired by a joie de vivre and appreciation of the finer things in life like an old pair of leather boots or a child’s painting. 18 Waits has an old European mentality which, at the same time, takes inspiration in nature and the natural flow of the Earth. It is a lifestyle which adheres just as much to Parisian cafés as it does to old English pubs, 1920s New York speakeasies, wood cabins by the lake, old upright pianos, poetry, literature, and 1970s rock and roll music. The clothes are built from the finest fabrics appropriate for each item within the collection. These items are meant to be worn well, enjoyed, loved, and destroyed.
