I am so happy to finally share images of the silk scarves that I have been hinting at and wringing my hands over for quite a while now. I hope you like them!
This line consists of large, 100% silk scarves with luxurious hand-rolled hems featuring blown-up versions of photographs taken in the late 1800s. They are all black and white, and when folded or worn produce an abstract texture that I really like, personally. The silk is quite lustrous and drapes beautifully. You could hang them on the wall if you wanted to, of course.
There are four of them in total: a mountain (Mount Sir Donald in British Columbia), an ice cave, a meteor in the constellation of Orion, and statues in the Gallery of Ancient Statues in Naples, with Venus of Gallipede in the foreground.
I asked Anja if she would be willing to shoot the scarves, because I always love her photoshoots (like “So Long, Marianne,” which was so good!), and luckily Megan was available for styling (she called the look “soft goth Lady Mary”--amazing). I wanted the photos to have a hint of that Pacific Northwest magic that I might not have been able to achieve on my own, and Anja delivered! She threw in a few double exposures, and I just love them. Thanks, Dream Team.
More photos have been posted on Flickr.
The scarves will be available starting on Monday, April 9 in our shop. They will retail for $119, which will include shipping.
And, yes! The name of the collection is inspired by the old levitation trick.
