"A telltale thump of the heart, the flush feeling that starts in your chest and spreads to your fingertips, the tightening of muscles and the quickening of breath: The effects of adrenaline are positively pulse-pounding, but the physical whoosh we feel in our bodies actually starts in our brains."

These images, accompanied with press releases created by Ouur, were then used in all marketing campaign materials.

Ouur Collection SS15

OuurMedia_OuurCollectionSS15_01.jpg
 
 

The Spring/Summer 2015 collection was born from a sense of freedom and exploration that comes with the warmer months’ approach. With those sentiments in mind, we looked to the natural beauty of New Mexico and the region’s spirited icon, Georgia O’Keeffe, incorporating architectural silhouettes, desert hues and elegant simplicity into the collection.

The Ouur Collection is a collaboration between Ouur and Japanese interiors brand Actus and is produced and sold exclusively in Japan. The Collection is a seasonal line of apparel and housewares that focuses on simplicity in design and doing more with less. Our emphasis on classic silhouettes and neutral color palettes offers a wardrobe that’s easily interchangeable, comfortable and designed to last.
