Inside the mind of a creative is a wild place to be -- especially one that never stops, like Cheryl’s! – but it’s always fun to get little glimpses into what sparked an idea for a piece that eventually came to fruition in the collection. For the Life Outdoors Top, it was old school periodicals.
“Y’all remember all those Outdoor Life magazines,” Cheryl said. “That’s where the concept for this top originated. We kind of played around with that type of aesthetic. We just kind of reimagined what the different images and artwork in these magazines for that period would’ve looked like, and incorporated it into kind of a fun, almost a toile effect. We kept the color scheme pretty neutral, outdoorsy – it only comes in this one colorway – and we embroidered ‘Life Outdoors’ as a nod to the inspiration.”
