ELOI

ELOI scarves, made from paper cut-out designs.

i’m always into things that are slightly off-kilter and what people might call “crazy”. that’s why i instantly took a liking to ELOI, a range of scarves by artist Paige Russell who constructs vibrant designs from paper cut-outs.

i know i complain about our endless summers a plenty – it’s not the sunshine that gets me, it’s just the heat guys! i revel in the short winter months where i get to wear stockings and scarves and coats and things made from wool. i must admit though, it never gets that cold. i don’t think i have worn gloves in south africa more than a handful (…) of times in my entire life. that does not mean i wouldn’t buy a pair. it would probably just end up sitting in a drawer all sad and lonely, waiting for the cold.

Charlotte Linton A/W 2012

Charlotte Linton hits it straight out of the park again with her A/W 2012 collection

The travel diaries of early 20th century artist Rockwell Kent provide a starting point for designer Charlotte Linton’s Greenland Collection. Taking inspiration from the paintings and drawings Kent created whilst living amongst Inuit communities, Charlotte blends her usual mix of landscape, wildlife and culture with Kent’s exuberant colour palette in her eclectic printed scarf collection.
