Brick & Mortar Launches Fashionable (and Instagrammable) Coffee Hub

BY SYDNEY HECKMAN AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY DOM KHUN; STYLIST: DANIELLA OSUNA & CHRISTINA VEHA RICHMOND, VA– RCFU highlights the local company Brick & Mortar in their newest fashion collaboration. The company is centered around sustainable and philanthropic efforts. They describe themselves as ethical and homemade in addition to other things, “…functional design, sustainable style, and unique works…our vintage selection focuses on timeless, casual, and day-to-day essentials to wear season after season” as described by the owner, Mat.  Senior fashion director, Daniella Osuna, styled the shot sticking to the classic vintage look. She curated a neutral color palette and pulled earthy colors to incorporate the ethical approaches B&M takes daily into their business practices. In lieu of colder temperatures, she made sure to include layering to inspire us to layer up as well.  Dom Khun, the senior creative director, and photographer decided to use natural lighting and simplistic scenery to encompass the values of the company as well.  As of August 2019, Brick & Mortar launched an in-store coffee shop that features a specialty menu from around the globe and multi-roaster that keeps up with high demands.  The drinks featured in the photoshoot collaboration included the toasted s’mores latte and regular coffee. The space provides a gathering place for the community and spark up conversations about great denim, local causes, and the minimalistic aesthetics in the store.
