To celebrate World Mental Health Day, we hosted a series of events led by our internal community group, Mind Body Soul, whose purpose is to raise awareness about wellness, create a community of support, and share resources made available through the brand. We kicked off our celebrations with a live taping of the Joy Jar, our internal podcast series that features conversations on empowerment, mental health and joy. For the discussion, Elisha London, social entrepreneur and mental health campaigner, joined Taryn Bird, our Senior Director of Social Impact. Teams also participated in a virtual community yoga session, led by our VP of Footwear, Jen Masella, in addition to our weekly meditation sessions. Plus, we celebrated 40+ employees becoming trained in Mental Health First Aid through our partners at the National Council for Mental Wellbeing.

For our fall store windows and interior displays, we were inspired by the idea of rediscovering your city. Skylines turn into characters, iconic shapes and figures are oversized and make you stop to take a second glance. We wanted the fall window display to capture the joy of New York (or wherever your city may be!) both big and small. From googly eyes on an abstract skyline to a literal big apple, this season we are embracing a new way of seeing the streets around us. Thank you to our teams around the world that brought this season to life! #loveinspades
