Surfing Safari Brooch Set
Picking up where Purrple Label’s Spring/Summer 2017 Friends of Mine left off, our Cruise 2018 maroons on Moumi, Myogi, and Kikilala’s version of the Blue Lagoon. A continued journey into the wild, with an added theme of survival. Inspired by the 1980’s controversial film of the same title starring a teenage Brooke Shields, the key visuals reference different elements on this mysterious island.
These brooches are designed as the final "toppings" of the fabric manipulation technique By Moumi has become well associated with. The Surfing Safari set in particular deals with the theme of survival where the cats learn to become something bolder, fiercer, and bigger in order to survive - adding the mane around their faces and they become lionnesses and the African Queens of the Jungle! Ideally these work anywhere on the Surfing Safari Onesie, but like any great chameleons, they go brilliantly with pretty much everything. They will also make perfect gifts for those feline lovers!
All processes to make these wonderful brooches are almost entirely crafted by hand including the stitching. Irregularities are considered characteristics of the products that make them truly one-of-a-kind.
