A Cavernous Journey

 
THE GATE OF SON DOONG CAVE 

 

I’ve known fashion photographer Kelly Ryerson since the beginning of this millennium, and first worked with her at Women’s Sports & Fitness magazine, where we journeyed on many an outdoor adventure. One of our most memorable was to photograph some bathing beauties in Goldbug Hot Springs, a hidden gem of a natural hot tub, bubbling along the banks of the Salmon River in the mountains of Idaho.

Hiking has always been a source of joy and solace for Kelly. As kid growing up in Austin, Texas, trekking through the woods and trails was simply the way to get to whatever watering hole she and her friends decided to cool off in that day. When faced recently with the emotional wallop and pain of a divorce, it was to hiking that Kelly returned, finding comfort in both its physicality and serenity.

Last March, Kelly embarked on an epic 5-day journey to Sơn Đoòng Cave in Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng National Park, Vietnam – only just recently discovered – and photographing it in these majestic images shown here. This is the story of her cavernous adventure…

Converse x Carhartt WIP

 

CONVERSE X CARHARTT WIP CHUCK TAYLOR ALL STARS

We love a good mash-up, and the collaboration between these two venerable brands might be one of our all time favorites. The Converse x Carhartt WIP collection features three Chuck Taylor All Star ‘70s Ox sneakers, each style utilizing the classic workwear-inspired Carhartt WIP fabrics of Tiger Camo Ripstop, White Drill, and Hamilton Duck Canvas. Bringing the utilitarian Carhartt influence to the iconic Converse All Star silhouette, the collection highlights everyday wearability and quality craftsmanship.

Converse and Carhartt are two heritage brands rich in both sports history and American culture. The Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star, introduced in 1932, is the original basketball shoe, and Carhartt, founded in 1889 was one of the first American companies to pioneer workwear in the USA. Carhartt WIP tailors the company’s core product design to a new consumer who values the brand’s origins while looking for a more modern design and fit. Converse x Carhartt WIP collection perfectly integrates both brands’ distinct culture and aesthetic.
