SHARING TUNES WITH HARRY AT LOWLANDS

 

Last weekend we were at Lowlands with our label Harry. Harry believes that people who are in tune take better care of the world around them. Together with Harry we strolled the festival site to collect people’s ‘tunes’ and asked the visitors: when do you feel the most happy and relaxed? What makes you feel in tune?

Jay from the UK told Harry that spicy food, old school films and strange animals make him happy. David from France shared he feels most relaxed at his parents place, in nature. Rosa from Holland was in tune right there, at Lowlands paradise. Curious about the other folks? See all of the collected tunes here.

Harry’s next stop is Magneet festival! The last weekend of August Harry will be collecting tunes at this awesome festival in Amsterdam. See you there!

“I like the fact that People Tree really walks the talk. Safia lives what she believes. She will not compromise at all. She does it her way, and I think that’s inspirational. I always think that Safia’s activity is really powerful, not only in the Fair Trade movement but also in the whole fashion industry as well. She tries to be creative more and more in this field. I think it’s a really important thing. Fashion and Fair Trade used to be apart, but now we can find many bridges between the two.” Dame Zandra Rhodes

The #HappyWoman video is set to ‘Tu-TuT’ by Ivo Beckett, capturing the energy of the Zandra Rhodes archive 1960’s designs, the brightness of early autumn and the nostalgia of summer festival colours.
