Hi, I'm Alix, the human behind Rat des Champs.
I've spent the last year working with phenomenal creatives in the development of my baby brand. We're putting all the fruits of many months of labor in our basket in preparation for Spring and Summer.
The best part of living in the digital age is that it allows us to experience the world even when travel isn't possible. This has been especially true in 2020 when travel was halted for virtually all of us.
I've been working from my home in Louisiana with beautiful people from around the country and around the world. From Austin to NYC, the UK, India and beyond, the Rat des Champs vision has come to life with the support and collaboration of this international team. The whole adventure has been made so much better with the company of creative, inspiring minds.
I began a collaboration with graphic artist Pinky, based in Brighton, UK, last summer after seeing his work featured on the cover of the independent London based publication Moof Magazine (check it out! www.moofmag.com)
I was drawn to Pinky's bright, positive vision full of inspiration from the 60's and 70's counterculture. I developed the collection in a certain mindset and knew I needed to find a talented graphic artist to collaborate with who shared my passion.
Now my team and I are working with incredible designers and artisans in India who are bringing our clothing and accessories to life. Zardozi Creations and Lunaya Jewelry based in Jaipur, have been instrumental partners in applying our patterns and artwork to create the range of products featured in the upcoming collection. More about these collaborations and our creative process coming soon!
I'm excited to share news and other stories with you. We have a lot to talk about!
Take care and thanks for the support.
