Late last year, my sister was awarded the International Affairs Fellowship from the Council on Foreign Affairs, which required her to relocate to Tokyo for the immediate future. The whole family decided to take advantage of her overseas assignment and in March, we arrived in Japan seeking a cultural experience though food and fellowship.

Mixing Prints Styling Tips

 

Citizen Blue

You’ll notice that a lot of our newest styles feature graphics that have a mixed media look to them – especially our panda graphic on our Baby Girl Kiri-e Panda Graphic Tee. Our designers were inspired by Japanese postcard art when they were designing this adorable panda. While it’s easy to wear a style that features a mixed print graphic (we love it!), mixing prints on multiple pieces of clothing can be a daunting task. We’ve made it easy for you to mix-and-match our newest baby girl styles. Follow along to get some inspiration…

A Detailed Look At Our Animal Graphics

15NOV_S_BG02_109.R2

Each season, our in house artists create unique graphics for tees. They paint, sketch, stamp and piece together the graphics you love. We take pride in not only our design process, but in the story behind each graphic. Each destination we travel to, we work to represent a handful of native animals. We love to learn about their behavior and habitats. We know our little citizens love animals, too! Patagonia is a land rich with animals, many of them relatively unknown to our own little citizens. The animals in Patagonia and throughout South America inspired and influenced the design of our newest graphics. Read on to see the graphics up close and learn about the animals behind them.
