I covet this fox scarf designed by UK textile artist Donna Wilson so much. I saw it in Dunedin Public Art Gallery when I was home at Christmas, and thought it was sweet… like an old fox stole, but playful and not at all dangerous to the real life foxes out there. Remember that pitiful moment in Grizzly Man when Timothy Treadwell cries over the dead fox? I don’t want anyone to weep over my clothing, but I do like the idea of a fox draped around my shoulders. Sartorial gestures towards woodland creatures are awesome.
So, yes… the desire for this quaint piece of fabric whimsy is growing. I have been a vulpine state of mind for a couple of weeks, now… and seeing Neko Case three times in the last week hasn’t helped.
I wants it.
