FERAL CHILDE SPRING 2013: THE SEARCHERS debuts six new exclusive textile designs by Feral Childe. We referenced Library of Congress images of the great American landscape, Dust Bowl and Farm Security Administration portraits of migrants searching and persevering for a better life. We considered the homesteading, slow food, and localvore movements, and revisted some of our favorite films, Terence Malick's Badlands and Days of Heaven and books about the land like John Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath, Willa Cather's My Antonia and O Pioneers!, and Pearl S Buck's The Good Earth. Also featured: our signature custom engraved tagua nut buttons (not plastic!), printed facings, welt pockets, self-belt options for added versatility and a range of styles intended to layer and transcend seasons. SP13 fabrications include silk crepe, cotton/linen, khadi (handloomed cotton from India!), organic cotton jersey, Hempcel linen. Made in Midtown NYC.
