Being a Minnesota owned and operated company, russell+hazel is well aware of the impressive talent that we have in our great state. That said, we are incredibly honored and excited to showcase some of that talent at our first in-store pop up, The Lady Slipper Collective. Named for the Minnesota state flower, The Lady Slipper Collective will feature the works of three amazingly talented artists and designers.
Brands with a story behind them are the driving force of the selection process for products that we carry in our flagship store, so it was only natural for us to showcase handcrafted jewelry line Urbain. Urbain makes handcrafted jewelry using raw materials with significance to historic sites, regions, and people groups. Each piece of jewelry is handmade which means that each one is unique and tells its own story. Urbain was founded by Logan Ketterling in Minneapolis, MN at the beginning of 2016 with the goal to combine his love for fashion and history.
Minneapolis-based artist, designer, and illustrator Cait Courneya will be another of the talented artists featured at our pop up. Inspired most by fashion and nature, her illustration style is bold, colorful, and fluid. Cait loves collaboration, as it stretches her skills and provides ways to try new things. She has most recently collaborated with Solid Manufacturing Co. on a limited run collection of hand painted leather accessories.
If you are at all familiar with the name Lilly Pulitzer, you are also familiar with the incredible talents of artist Abbey Holden, as she was print designer for the brand and hand painted prints, embroidery and textile design. Abbey’s work is influenced by the scenery around her, memories of places she has visited and brilliant colors that have stuck with her throughout her travels. With an appreciation for everything vibrant, Abbey works to convey a feeling of happiness in everything that she paints.
To experience the works of Cait Courneya, Abbey Holden Studio and Urbain in person and support local indie artisans, stop by the Lady Slipper Collective at the russell+hazel Flagship Store in the North Loop on December 10th from noon – 4.
