Journal Entry No. 24

In collaboration with Kye Intimates

September 5, 2019


In collaboration with Kye Intimates, we invite a conversation on self worth. With words from founder Bonita Kye on what led to the inception of her namesake label.

To bring the conversation into the physical space, and to you, we introduce the Self Worth Set – an exclusive pairing of pieces by Kye Intimates accompanied by a limited edition Forme & Sens Transparency Pendant.

"A concoction of people pleasing, projections and comparisons depleted my self worth."


 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Post-university has been a constant ego dance around living in the shadow of mediocrity and worn out beliefs. A concoction of people pleasing, projections and comparisons depleted my self worth. Hopping laterally between jobs led to years of victimizing myself and choosing complacency.

Only recently reflecting on my ‘rock bottom’, I realized that this darkness gifted me the willpower to start Kye Intimates. Today, I am working on disassociating from my past life and redistributing that energy into creating intimates – in hopes that they can bring women closer to themselves.

The Forme & Sens journal is curated by Tiana Petrullo in collaboration with a beautiful community of contributors who have offered to share their personal experiences with mental health. To encourage a contribution of the most raw and real experience, minimal guidance has been given. All stories have been willingly shared and written to reflect what is personally most prevalent to the writer. Together we offer knowledge, awareness and acknowledgement.
