you should know_willys detroit

yet another reason to be proud of my city. shinola recently opened up willys detroit, a 'multibrand concept boutique' which curates some of the coolest (mostly american made) brands (shout out to common projects, mollusk, apolis + more). probably the first time many of these brands have their product in the state of michigan..and at a gorgeous shop at that. can't wait to check it out next time i'm in the mitten! 

you should know_detroit is beautiful

most of what we see across facebook and instagram feeds features the intriguing #ruinporn that the city of detroit is crawling with. rarely does anyone showcase the rich history or current betterment overflowing in the city. i found this video from german PR firm OSK to be extremely heart-warming; for once our city is showcase in its glory--past and present--and not for the means of selling a chrysler vehicle
