All aboard for Fox & Chave

 

Greetings everyone from all at Fox & Chave and welcome to our new website.

 

Brand new for 2018 and loaded with all of your favourite fine art silk ties, pure silk scarves and our other fine art inspired accessories such as cuff links and silver pendants that you know us for.

 

Offering you the kind of fine art inspired products that you want and making them easier for you to order, is what has us so excited! For us here at Fox & Chave we hope that the possibilities available via the new platform will only improve our service.

 

There are a few changes that come with any new website that take a little figuring out, so we thought we would help with a quick post on some of these to help you to find that special William Morris Snakeshead silk tie that you need to get your hands on. Or maybe it’s a Van Gogh Starry Night Chiffon Scarf!

 

 

Searching for products

As with most websites the new look Fox & Chave has several ways that you can find the items that you are looking for.

 

Main Menu

 

  1. The Main Menu – Also known as the ‘Mega-Menu’, and located at the top of each page immediately below the Fox and Chave logo, here you will find several ways to find what you are looking for.

 

  • For Him - You want a unique fine art inspired gift, or something else for that special man and want to browse our men’s range. This is the best place to start. Here you will find the various tie and cuff link collections that we offer as well as other silk products for men.

 

  • For Her – If the fine art gift that you need is for a lady and you want to browse our silk scarf collections, as well as our silk clutch purses, silver pendants and more, start here.

 

  • By Movement – Under the ‘Select’ option we have grouped products according to various categories to help you. The first one features items according to several fine art movements. If you have a love for Arts and Crafts or know someone who is an Art Nouveau nut, this might be the way to go.

 

  • By Artist – Lets say you are looking for that favourite William Morris tie for example. Navigate via the ‘Select’ option to ‘Morris’ under the ‘By Artist' header for all of our William Morris products. Other artists are also listed here if you are a Mackintosh man or are just crazy for Klimt!

 

  • By Style – Many of our silk ties and silk scarves cross boundaries of fine art classification, not to mention our country and national heritage products. Here we have shortlisted items accordingly, so if you do decorative inspired ties, or go ape for our animal and bird accessories, start here.

 

  • By Culture – Another way to search our collections of silk ties scarves, cuff links and other accessories is according to their cultural significance. If you just gotta go Greco-Roman silk scarf, go here.

 

Search Bar Image

 

 

  1. The Search Bar – If you know exactly what silk scarf or tie you want by name or even by trade product number, and you just don’t want to mess about with menus, use the search option. This is identified in the top menu bar via the Magnifying Glass icon. Type in what you are looking for and the results will be displayed for you.

 

Featured Product Carousel

 

 

  1. Featured Products – Another exciting aspect of the new site is that we can highlight much more easily featured products or groups of our ties, scarves and more. These can be seen on the home page in the slider, below that in various visual links and carousels, and also throughout the site. We are also working to develop features to suggest other Fox and Chave products that complement what you are looking at. Look out for these soon!

 

Side bar

 

 

  1. The Side Bar - When you navigate to the product menu pages, and product detail pages you will notice on the left of the page a side bar. Here you will find links to areas of the site. Some are categories from the Main menu options, while others link to specific products by type. You can also filter a product menu page by colour from here.

 

Search by Institution

 

 

  1. Institutions – If you want to buy a tie or silk scarf specifically from a collection associated with one of the many world-renowned museums, galleries and institutions that we work with, you can find links to these in the testimonial area of the home page.
