readySET @ JSJ, modeled by Zu

Despite all 4 inches of the paralyzing snow, I took a lunch-time outing yesterday to the JohnSarahJohn pop-up shop with the esteemed mycologist + gastronome Ms. Zu P. In the photos that follow, Zu is modeling a set of cowls and scarves that I made especially for JSJ this holiday season, using bolts of deadstock vintage silk suit-lining fabric.

I also made a set of my woolen cowls for JSJ in colors inspired by men’s suiting and a trio of clutch purses, using a vintage indigo-dyed silk kimono and wool flannel in shades of camel, grey, and charcoal…they’re rather subdued on the outside and bright ORANGE on the inside.

The JohnSarahJohn pop-up holiday gift gallery is open Thursdays through Sundays, noon-9pm, through December 24th.

Also managed to pop in the mail yesterday, x-mas stockings for the nephews:

readySETat JohnSarahJohn

As of yesterday (Thursday) a selection of my wares are now available at the downtown Charlottesville design studio JohnSarahJohn. JSJ are opening their doors to the public for a pop-up holiday gift shop, open Thursday through Sunday, 12-9pm, December 2nd-24th. You can find them at 422 E. Main Street, across from the Nook.

For their December pop-up shop, I’ve collaborated with JSJ on a line of soft goods, plundering their stash of amazing vintage fabrics to create:

+ scarves and cowls made from bolts of deadstock silk suit lining fabric

+ clutch purses fashioned from vintage woolens and kimono silks

+ my woolen cowls are also available in a range of men’s suiting colors, exclusive to JSJ (camel, brown, navy, charcoal, pale gray, black)
