THE BEGINNING. Marvin Ruby is inspired by my grandparents Marvin and Ruby. When putting together a mood board for this season I reminisced about playing on their living room floor as a child with The Roy Rodgers Show playing in the background - Ruby hand embroidering her quilt blocks in the armchair and Marvin reading the TV Guide. I wanted the historic, Amish-style quilt to fit in the modern wardrobe in a way that didn’t feel, well, Americana. I imagined someone wearing the pieces with a poplin blouse or leather jacket. Or even a feminine boot and a hoodie. All images sourced from Pinterest.
