Interview with Poppy & Moe -

 Oh my gosh, everybody's talking about a nip in the air and fall just around the corner.  Could it really be so?  Is summer almost over?  We took the summer off doing First Fridays but now since September's coming right up, we're thrilled (beyond) to have Sabrina from Poppy & Moe as our featured artist.  Assuming of course she's made it back from Burning Man.   She'll be bringing it with four brand new tee designs.   Lila did a little interview with the duo where they dish about fashion, trends, and sustainability.  Enjoy!


Q: What were your inspirations for the new designs?

Sabrina: The  2012 collection was inspired by the 1960's bad girl. We were drawn to a vintage rocker chick look; feminine but edgy. She might ride a Triumph motorcycle, make daisy chains and listen to Black Sabbath. In this collection the art is simple yet very detailed and stands out uniquely in a world of mainstream graphic tees. We have eight new designs this fall, four will debut on the First Friday Art Walk; simple single color prints. The other four which will be out in the stores mid October, will be multi color prints of two to four colors.

Q: What do you think is trendy for fall/winter this year? How is that
incorporated into your new designs?

 Sabrina: Dark/dreamy art, black, loose fit, burnt red and orange, grey tones and vintage elements.... we incorporated all of those in to our new collection however we usually ignore the trends and create what we think is fun and looks cool.

Q: Can you tell us about the new shirts you're using, and what made
you decide to change them?

 Kelsie: Our new shirts are a super soft blend of cotton and modal. They are a beautiful slub fabric that is made here in the United States. Producing in our own country is important to us and we are really excited about the fit and feel of these high quality shirts.

Q: How does Poppy & Moe integrate sustainability into its business
model and product?

Kelsie: All of our art is still hand printed in house using water based ink and environmentally friendly printing products. All of our shirts are now produced in the USA, which means nothing we use comes from another country. We love that we can offer this to our customer, because it ishard to find in the world of fashion.

Q:  Any big plans for the future of P & M?

Kelsie: Grow our international business! We have more stores in Japan than all of our other stores combined. We hope to produce more styles and offer a bigger collection of USA made goods.
