Dear Friends & Family, 

 

I am so excited to introduce to you our brand new collection – LTP Essentials – alongside our first ever Seasonal Line: Fall / Winter '16

 

As per usual, Caleb Davis – designer, illustrator, and one of my best friends – captured the vision for this project perfectly by building upon the foundation he's been laying for years as my go-to for all things creative. We've been counting down to this release for a lot longer than any hype on social media has accounted for. 

 

In addition, we've recently begun collaborating with our friend and photographer Drew Schrimsher, who helped bring LTP Essentials to life. Working with him, along with an amazing group of models – Chad Barela, Bree Barela, Emy Row and Levi Martinez – here in Albuquerque, NM, has proven to be a wonderful experience, and we're all proud to introduce this collection to you today. 

 

We captured the F|W 16 line of what will be an expanding LTP Essentials collection in the East Downtown (EDO) district of our city. EDO is a small neighborhood along Historic Route 66, just east of the railroad tracks that split Albuquerque from the South, and run North as far as Santa Fe. It's a unique spot, architecturally, in an up-and-coming part of town that boasts beauty and color like no other part of town.

 

The holidays are right around the corner, and in conjunction with yesterday's two-year anniversary of the release of Correspondence (a fiction), we wanted to create something – or a collection of somethings – worth the celebration. 

 

I hope that you love LTP Essentials: F|W 16 as much as I've loved working toward this moment

 

Thank you for being a part of my life. It is an honor to be a part of yours.  

 

You matter. Thank you. 

 

Levi
