We lose Chadwick Boseman

It’s with a mourned, but inspired heart that I write this blog. We recently lost a phenomenal creative and actor Chadwick Boseman. He played in a series of movies, of them all and my favorite and most memorable was The Black Panther.

I originally introduced this collection in 2018 during the premiere of The Black Panther. The designs were inspired by the character T’Challa, Okoye and others themes within the film.

I went back-and-forth as to whether or not I would recreate our Black Panther bracelets, how it would feel to make them available for purchase.

However if you’ve been rocking with Johari & Lou since #armillxpress you know we’ve had these particular charms for a while, when Black Panther first hit the scene. It was the best way to express and allow myself to grieve a man I sincerely became attached through art and film. My family and sons most importantly lost a hero. I decided to create (making a set for my sons, and have now made them available for purchase 💜)
