A Peek at Tribe Alive's Newest Clothing Line

Ooh, pretty.

Fort Worth-based Tribe Alive will launch its second apparel collection this September, featuring sustainably sourced cotton handwoven on foot and backstrap looms in Guatemala. While the collection stays true to Tribe Alive’s less-is-more aesthetic, it plays with color and weaves retro looks into the mix. “We were inspired by the original feminist movement of the 1960s and pulled a great deal of inspiration from that time in history. It influenced our designs, our color palette and eventually the location for our lookbook photoshoot,” said Carly Burson, founder and CEO of Tribe Alive. The team took to the streets of Havana, Cuba, for the lookbook. “It’s a place stuck in time, full of hospitality, openness, humility and passion." Tribe Alive apparel 2.0 evokes many of the same concepts of the previous line, featuring stripes and androgynous separates that can serve as basics. “We obsessed over the details with this line,” said Burson. The team also took to heart customer feedback in reference to the first line, focusing more on perfecting fit, offering more sizes and including styles that work for all body types. Look for Tribe Alive Autumn/Winter 2017 to drop in September at select retailers and online at tribealive.com.
