About the first collection: Future Collective with Kahlana Barfield Brown

  • The Future Collective brand debuted in September 2022 with our first partner, Kahlana Barfield Brown. The collection ran through January 2023.

  • The Future Collective with Kahlana Barfield Brown collection was inspired by Kahlana’s closet and personal fashion formula, and featured 120 items over four seasonal refreshes. The collection of streetwear-inspired pieces such as matching sets, dresses and trousers was available in an inclusive size range of XXS-4X.
