Wild Mantle’s Creator Shares Her Style Secrets


Avi Loren Fox

Founder, Wild Mantle, Narberth

About Wild Mantle: I stitched the first Wild Mantle hoodie on my grandmother’s sewing machine out of my favorite old sweaters. Before I knew it, I was making them for lots of other people. Our mission is to create a lifestyle of warmth, beauty, functionality and purpose that’s good for you and good for our planet.

Personal style: Simple but elegant, quality over quantity, classic with a slightly bohemian twist.

Winter trends you’re looking forward to: Pockets, plunging necklines, and wrapped silhouettes.

Style icons: Audrey Hepburn, for her timeless class.

Go-to casual outfit for a Saturday out: My Durango World Traveler leather boots, MiH jeans, a leather jacket, and a Wild Mantle Alpaca hooded scarf. 

Go-to holiday party outfit: The little black dress my best friend bought for me in Spain. It has an open-square back and an empire-waist tie—and it twirls in a perfect circle.

Splurges: I’m a sucker for leather boots.

Favorite thing in her closet: An oatmeal vintage cashmere sweater.

Favorite local shops: Style Camp in Chestnut Hill, Eastcote Lane and Element Six in Wayne.

Designers she admires: Tory Burch and Eileen Fisher for their keenly curated aesthetic and leadership as female entrepreneurs. 

What she’s most looking forward to in the New Year: Dreaming and designing the Wild Mantle world to be bigger, more beautiful and more sustainable.
