Handmade in Fortuny fabric and designed by American Artist Ann Wood. Only 30 foxes were designed and each one is styled differently. Fortuny fox made her debut in 2015 during the 2015 Paris Deco Off. Christian Ladd Interiors acquired the from the Fortuny Showroom, in Venice, and shipped back to the states in 2018.
The Story behind Fortuny's Limited Edition Fox Art Pieces :
Drawing inspiration from Japanese folklore of “The Fox’s Wedding." The line also includes a limited edition series of Ann Wood designed Fortuny foxes wearing reversible Fortuny kimonos.
“We decided upon the theme of “The Fox’s Wedding” as we were playing around with halftones and production techniques,” says Mickey Riad, Creative Director of Fortuny. “Japanese legend attributes the phenomenon of the way a sun shower can fool what your eye sees to foxes that often play tricks on humans. The idea that the new collection plays tricks on the eye fit perfectly with that theme. In addition, the pattern and color choices that were inspired by Japanese art and textiles. ”
The goal of the collection was to create designs that embraced Mariano Fortuny’s painterly approach to fabric and play with the idea of what is seen and unseen, interpreting different elements as fabric. Rounding out the collection are the limited edition one of a kind foxes; designed by artist Ann Wood.
