NOSTALGIA

Dress For Adventure with Flannel Foxes

Flannel Foxes, Bison staples since spring of 2016, are joining us again and we couldn't be happier to climb into our new adventuring gear! Megan, Brittni, and Mike, owners of Flannel Foxes, had this to say of their brand: "Flannel Foxes is a nostalgic brand inspired by life in the Canadian West. We take inspiration from our home and native land to bring you high quality, well designed, practical clothing." Amen to that! You can keep up with the nostalgia train on instagram (@flannelfoxes) or twitter (@flannelfoxes) and read on down below to see what's been inspiring the trio of adventurers these days:

RB: What draws you to making/designing things?
FOXES: We grew up camping and exploring Canada’s western provinces, carrying a deep appreciation for what these lands have to offer. We aspire to make clothes that share the best of Canada West. It's also another design creative for Mike and Brit, in a less structured environment than the world of advertising or barbering.

RB: What’s new for your line/business this spring?
FOXES: We have a variety of new hats, shirts, and pennants coming out in time for Royal Bison, all inspired by the theme of the Western Canadian road trip.

RB: What’s in your designer/maker/creative plans for 2018?
FOXES: We're focusing on the theme of road trips this summer. It's the inspiration behind the graphics on our new hats and shirts. We plan to take a few road trips, so we'll also be sharing the best places to visit through social media and our website. This summer we have a variety of collaborations, parties, and pop-ups planned, so stay tuned!

RB: Tell us about a few of your designer/maker/creative crushes:
FOXES: Mountains & Monsters. Hamburger Hands. Adrian Martinus.

Minimal, rad, nostalgic. WE LOVE IT! Check out the rest of their stock at www.flannelfoxes.com

Q: What does it mean to be an Edmonton maker/designer/artist?
FF: Edmonton is a truly unique city with an amazing community of people who love to support local business. We're so lucky to be from here and to have been able to meet some fantastic people through this work. 

Q: What are your top 3 influences (artists, things, etc)?
FF: Flannel Foxes is a nostalgic brand, we love looking back at our parents & grandparents memorabilia to get an idea of what Canada meant to them growing up. We're also big fans of the Rocky Mountain Antique Mall. 

Q: Favourite Bison item you’ve picked up at a previous fair?
FF: All of us own Monster friends from Mountains & Monsters. We can't get enough ugly cuteness!
