This isn’t the first collection we’ve styled after a fictional character, but it might be the first based on one we dreamt up ourselves.
The Fall 2022 Scrapbooks collections have thus far been inspired by our influential ancestors and indelible figures from our own family tree. Chili Patine, however, is a figment of our own imagination, an inside joke that snowballed for years and almost became a pseudonym that captured the essence of childhood road trips and sibling shenanigans.
Heavily influenced by our dozens of visits to New Mexico, Chili Patine has a definitively Southwestern vibe, inspired by adobe dwellings and visits to Indian Market, hand-crafted wares and colloquial fashions. It brings together hues of rich terra cotta and warm khaki, enhanced and elevated with chic shades of black and poison pops of turquoise. Prints nod to classic blanket designs and traditional jewelry, with an exciting introduction to our collaboration with outstanding artist and Navajo native, Penelope Joe.
It's an exceptional autumn collection, and the imagery inspiration was certainly real, even if Chili Patine was not.
