I found Inspiration for a new clothing line from my great grandfather’s passion for hunting
in the great outdoors. Arthur Bruce was a charter member of The Choctaw Hunting Club and could be found many weekends in the piney woods and fields of the South. His outdoor exploits generally included two of his favorite hunting dogs: Rex, a German short hair retriever; and a Labrador retriever by the name Henley.
After looking back into my family roots, I found many images of antique lanterns. The lantern is a time tested device which provides light in times and places of darkness. Whether in the great outdoors or inside a rustic cabin, a long day shines brightest when the lantern provides the light necessary for the story telling and the reflections on events of the day and the stories of the past.
