Made By Hand | Bear Fox Chalk

In our latest lookbook, The Happiest Season of All, we are excited to feature the chalk designs (and Minnetonka style!) of the creative duo behind Bear Fox Chalk, Johnna and Max Holmgren.

In 2011, a paper goods and stationery store Johnna managed was in need of a large chalk menu for their cafe.  Max asked if he could take on the project for fun and together the two brainstormed and collaborated on the menu’s design.

From that first project the thought process leading to Bear Fox Chalk was born.  Opportunities lead to other chalk projects and Johnna and Max soon realized there was an audience for starting a business centered around chalk designs.

Since then Max and Johnna have had the chance to collaborate with a variety of clients, merging visions to create original designs for each.

With projects that allow for more creative freedom the process always begins in a sketchbook. To spark ideas for future designs their daily sketches serve as constant inspirations, as well as referencing books they’ve collected over the years ranging from medieval hunting scene illustrations to vintage lettering to wood engravings.

The process for each design differs depending on size and details involved.  For the whimsical pieces created for the Minnetonka lookbook Max and Johnna loved the idea of using chalk lettering and illustration to showcase actual Minnetonka product in a fun, new way.

Global Lookbook: Maja Wyh

Maja from Maja Wyh
Location: Galopprennbahn Düsseldorf

Maja styled the Two Button Boot for our Global Lookbook using the striking back drop of  Galopprennbahn Düsseldorf.   Here she shares with us a few of her favorite places to visit and things to do in Düsseldorf!

Do. After a good lunch I love to take a stroll through many different museums to see great art.

See.  The small harbor where you can sit outside around the water.  It it definitely a must see in the summer.  Great restaurants, beautiful location where awesome people hang out with awesome people.

Eat. Cafe Rika. Maybe the best Japanese food in Düsseldorf.  You haven’t lived, if you haven’t eaten teriyaki salmon with rice and salad there.

Go. Do you remember the picture of Lady Diana in summer, leaned against a car, hanging out at a polo game.  Rennbhan Düsseldorf always reminds me of those chic events, where big hats were important like the cars of men.  It’s a peacemaking place, so close to history and perfect to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Shop. The Düsseldorf City Center offers you everything you want, like vintage shops, high fashion brands and everything in between.  It is the perfect place to find serious fashion.

Grace from Camp Patton and Blythe from The Fike Life

With the seasons starting to change from fall to winter finding the perfect pair of boots to make the transition is key. We asked two busy moms’ Grace and Blythe to take a classic ankle boot and style it two different ways to look cold-weather cool when on the go this season.

Each Minnetonka style can be worn a million different ways. Share your #MyMinnetonka style on Instagram!
