Identity: The Shawl Museum

Located 60km (≈40 miles) east of Moscow, the town of Pavlovski Posad is home to 320 examples of traditional female headwear from the 18th-20th centuries. Curated from the private collection of Vladimir Shishenin, the Museum was founded in 2002 to demonstrate the history of classical Russian kerchiefs and shawls as an integral part of the traditional national costume.

This beautiful identity system was created by Vova Lifanov, a Russian designer & illustrator based in Moscow.

Enjoy!

Men’s Sunglasses by Face Shape

Finding the perfect pair of sunglasses is a difficult task. Us ladies can slap on a pair of oversized, bedazzled shades & call it a day, but there just aren’t as many options for the guys. Mr Porter has made it easy with this handy little chart that offers options for each face shape. Of course, it all comes down to what you love and what makes you feel great, but sometimes we all need a little extra help. You can check out their full line of sunglasses for a selection of sexy, high quality shades that are sure to add an extra dose of oomph! to your outfit. (Just please, please take them off at night. You’re welcome.)

New Fox & Brie Website

New website, new blog, new products…there’s a lot going on over here! I’ve been off the social media radar recently, which I hate and hope to change soon. I feel like there’s so much I’d like to share with you, but for sanity’s sake I’ll be brief. Here’s what’s been going on in the studio this summer:

New Website

Fox & Brie Website

After months of procrastination, I’ve finally redesigned foxandbrie.com. There’s still so much more I’d like to add but in the meantime: it’s a little more user-friendly, a lot more attractive, and responsive across a variety of different media devices. Take a look & let me know what you think!

Renegade Craft Fair 2013

 

We’re happy to announce that we’ll be at this summer’s Renegade Craft Fair at the Palmer Events Center in Austin, Texas. Renegade is always so much fun, and we’re happy to join in this year’s festivities. We’ll be slinging bow ties & hugs all day Saturday & Sunday, so stop by and say hello!

Aaaaand….May 19 is my birthday! If you need me on Sunday, I’ll be wearing my party pants & starting the dance storm. You’re all invited!


April Updates

Bow Ties | Fox & Brie

As the new house slowly becomes a home, I wanted to share a few pictures of our new space! The Room for Mistakes (a.k.a. our studio) is all set up and stockpiled with fabrics and supplies. It’s so nice to actually have room to work and breathe…at the same time!

We’ve also added a few new shops to our growing list of stockists, including The Tinderbox in Houston, Texas and Frances Jaye in Holland, Michigan. Have fun, MI & TX!

Cobra Society

I must admit, I’m pretty in love with the entire Cobra Society catalog. The vibrant colors and Byzantine-inspired patterns are absolutely stunning! Sourcing Moroccan kilim and Spanish leather, every item by UK designer Alex Davis is so well-crafted and unique. Each sole is hand sewn to its heel using traditional Goodyear welt construction, making these shoes comfortable and extremely durable.

I’ll take one of each, please!
