Cockpit USA Spring 2012 

Storing my winter favorites is NOT something I look forward to, however with Cockpit USA’s Spring 2012 en route, I must boast excitement for it’s arrival.

Inspired by the Appalachian Trail (AT), a 2,180 footpath running through fourteen states, my then co-worker Charles Edmundson and I packed our bags and set out to his lovely home in Vermont. There we met up with his fearless team of friends (models) Nichole Hastings, Ian Coleman, Grey Barreda, and Mason Dwinell to to shoot our Spring 2012 collection on the AT.  

Foolishly pulling a pair of Palladium boots for everyone (except for myself), had me stomping stylishly through the trail in red “hot pant” shorts and brown boat shoes. I had no idea what lay ahead…

Please check out some of my favorites captured by the talented Sally Carpenter. Followed by a behind the scenes that I able to film and edit. 

Special Thank’s to Kim Souza of Revolution clothing & Ashley Bennett
