I was inspired by a 1930′s movie studio studio photo of a woman and what might have been a star dog, C Coles Phillips fade-away illustrations, and, of course fashion. This is my mom’s newfoundland Brody and the pines he runs around in in the background. I got the coolest pocket square in Japan with a blueberry pattern on it and lost it so the pattern on her coat is a shout out to that poor pocket square lying in the street somewhere in the world.
