So there’s this really cool guy that I know named Jeremy. Jeremy is an artist. Jeremy just launched a new line of really fabulous Louisiana inspired apparel and art. Pelican Parish Supply Co. touches a special place in my heart for my love of all things.”Louisiana”.
You’re not going to find a fleur de lis in his designs. While the fleur de lis is somewhat of a given in most Louisiana designs, Jeremy is opting for a more unique approach. His idea is to “champion good design that features the iconic state bird and pays homage to our culture – all pieces are bold and a bit kooky, just like the people of Louisiana themselves”.
As is usually the case, I arrived at the first launch party of the week just as it was getting started at Gearhead Outfitters in Mall St. Vincent in Shreveport. (I’m always worried that I’m going to miss something if I arrive late.) There was already a nice crowd forming. It was great seeing people supporting a local artist. My favorite of the Pelican Parish Supply Co. shirts was the limited-edition “Sunshine” long-sleeve hoodies worn by Jesi Wilcox. I wanted to snatch it right of her cute little self. I’m going to do my best to get over to Great Raft on Thursday to get one of my own.
This week is Pelican Parish Supply Co’s launch week, so if you missed the March 24th event at Gearhead Outfitters, make plans to attend one of the other upcoming events:
- Thurs, March 26 (4:00 pm) at Great Raft Brewing in Shreveport, Louisiana
- Sat, March 28 (11:30 am) at King Hardware and Gifts in Shreveport, Louisiana
