Straight from the Vault. Gambrell Renard's New Take on Fur
This post is for the seriously glamorous! For those of you out there not afraid to rock a mink or better yet chinchilla. For the hip-hop divas who understand the risk of checking your coat at the club, as well as the well-heeled socialites stepping out for an evening at the opera. From as far back as I can remember, black women of a certain social set have worn full length mink coats to evening events. In her later years my grandmother, who was suffering from dementia, called my mother in a panic because she wasn't feeling well and wanted to go to the hospital. My mother said that when she showed up (in mid-July mind you), that my grandmother had on her fur coat and biking shorts. I'm not sure if she thought it was a formal affair or if it was so ingrained in her to wear it up into town that she just threw it on. At any rate, I have always had a love affair with fur...it's in my blood.
Some time ago, I got an email from Brandon Gambrel about his new pillow collection. I love finding new products to share with you, so I asked him to send some information over. I instantly fell in love with the Logan Collection. From the first moment I saw it, I knew that I'd have to add the amazing pillows to my home's decor. There's so much to love about the collection! It's hand-crafted in the USA from premium furs and leathers. I absolutely adore the way he melded the cherry coffee hair on cowhide with the white rabbit fur. Don't you just just want to scream at how the texture causes the entire piece to spring to life? The pillows come in a variety of leathers with mink, chinchilla and fox fur options. What's not to love?
This combination is to die for! It would also work really well for my male clients. Thanks a million Brandon for reaching out to my readers. We are so in love!
