“In 2021 I will continue to try to open doors for the next generation, sparking conversations that they want to have, and inviting them to alter our status quo. Ultimately I will continue creating opportunities for the kids at home with a vision, and do what I can to help them jumpstart their dreams.”
Rushemy Botter and Lisi Herrebrugh, founders BOTTER and creative directors Nina Ricci.
The experience of this past year provided a new impetus, to dispel the gloom and create another image of life. For 2021 we hope to bring some poetry back into existence, be a joyous embodiment of the air of our time.
Reese Cooper, founder Reese Cooper.
For our team the message this year has been to play it safe and smart. We look to enter 2021 under the same mentality. For us, playing it safe and smart has way more to do with each other than with business risks. At the end of the day, we’re all people working together to achieve a common goal. We have to look out for each other, all of us! As a team we’re all very outdoor focused and find the same lessons for the outdoors apply within our work. Play it safe, explore locally, leave no trace etc. Being able to explore a little more in California during 2020 has been an incredible privilege and we’re very hopeful and working towards the goal of helping to make the parks and pastimes we enjoy more inclusive and open to everyone.

2021 is hopefully an amazing year for us all, a year where we can finally come back together and enjoy each other and celebrate again. I hope we can travel again and see each other, discover new places and new experiences. That’s all I want for 2021.
Attached is a picture from my latest collection E-BOY, which is a celebration and a tribute to my community. Hopefully we get to go out again and are able to dress up and enjoy this up coming SS21 season ✨

My outlook is positive and my wish for 2021 is more truth and more inspiration. I’m tired of the lies and manipulation. All I want is the truth, as wonderful and as uncomfortable as it may be. The world will be better off knowing the truth.
Louis-Gabriel Nouchi, founder LGN Louis-Gabriel Nouchi.
For new Year, we want to be able to meet, share, laugh and gather again all together.
A year full of inspiring moments that we miss.
The entire LGN team sends you its best wishes for 2021!
