Inspired by the great American photographer Edward Sheriff Curtis whose photographs of the great North American Indian tribes helped preserve their traditions and history before they disappeared completely.

Wolf and Rita’s winter collection aims to bring some of that original free spirit back. Take a peek at Milk and Rock’s debut Indian Winter collection!
