Many moons ago, while preparing for a month in mexico,
we created the
ALIX of BOHEMIA TEDDIE SHORTS
for beach, for bicycle for bed:
a little elasticated bottom to see us through all of our adventures in the sun.
they were so popular, they sold out immediately and we didn't even keep one for ourselves! Literally selling them off our backsides.
we dreamed of created a large volume, each one unique, like little sweets.
our hands alone could not make a big batch all by their lonesome selves.
And then, just as the sun finally broke through, we met Claire.
(the Blonde to our Black)
This is Claire:
A crazy cool art director and kindred spirit who jumped right on board, her capable hands and amazing eye
would make her the perfect collaborator for a little trunk show we decided to call
P A N I E R
Together we'll be showing
100 pairs of TEDDIE SHORTS
at a pop up sale this coming weekend
You're totally invited to the feast if you'd like to come.
RSVP for all the details here.
we are always excited to tell a story and we feel we must give you the low-down on our little fairy sewing partner, La Jolie.
Here she is wearing the
ALIX of BOHEMIA SAFFRON DRESS
When we have a crush on you, we make you answer questions.
(We're not very good at playing it cool)
