“Some creations are timeless; slight nuances evoke endless appreciation.”
- Robert Comstock
Two Years In The Making
“The Fall 2023 RC collection began on August 31, 2021, with a flight to Nairobi, connecting to the Maasai Mara for a conservation project with young members of the Maasai tribe. From Kenya I travelled to Italy, where I selectively chose cashmere and alpaca yarns, intricately woven jacquard patterns, shearling, nappas and suedes, each mirroring my experiences in the field. After kneading the materials individually and collectively, the touch, color, and olfactory senses would manifest their contributions in my designs. While two years in fashion may seem like an eternity, I’ve learned to let my experiences (rather than a calendar) determine the outcome.”
COMSTOCK & CO
"My creations are inspired by global expeditions and conservation; each garment is designed to share the experiences that inspire me. Underneath the Robert Comstock umbrella, Comstock & Co represents comfort, warmth and mid-tier luxury.”
“I met with Maasai pastoralists who for more than 400 years have co-existed alongside apex predators. The lion, leopard, cheetah and hyena have always been a challenge to shepherds’ cattle, goats and sheep, but threats of changing landscapes due to fencing and power lines are significantly altering migration patterns and increasing the conflict between man and predator. The chief threat to Africa’s ecosystem and its most integral animal, the vulture, is poisoning. 50% of all purchases for Robert Comstock Conservation T-shirts go directly to The Peregrine Fund’s Vulture Liaison Officers in Kenya who are dedicated to stop the poisoning of vultures and other wildlife through community education programs and rapid response to poisoning incidents.”
