Whenever we feature couples on the site, we are always struck by the symbiosis of their styles and how inspiring they are as dynamic duos. This is what moved us to bring eight couples together in order to make this Valentine's Day video, A Love Story, for you.
Busting the cliches that beset love (and all things) is hard to do. There is the notion that we can skirt over the inevitable struggles and skip right to happily every after with everything we desire at our fingertips. By tracing the journeys of our couples -- how they fell in love and how they continue to navigate their committed relationships -- our Valentine's Day video hopes to topple the insidious emptiness that's packaged as "love," while unveiling its universal beauty.
In every shape, size, form, and style, these sixteen individuals reveal the magnificence that is found in the journey, and how style is as much about being real as it is about what you put on.
In the end, love, like style, is all about the spirit.
Happy Valentine's Day,
xoxox Elisa & Lily
