The romantic, feminine aesthetic is perfectly embodied in this soft woven, large pashmina and lace Violetta stole. Richly textured in pashm and silk, its mesmeric lace hems, which resemble delicate fresh flowers and spiderwebs, add elegance and a touch of intrigue to your look.
The Violetta is special. It is handmade, trimmed with wide bands of lace which either contrast or blend with the pashmina, and comes in gorgeous colours. There’s no denying the allure of pink—it is of course the colour of the season—and a simple white or ivory dress is transformed when draped with the large, stylish shell pink Violetta pashmina, its layering of gold lace picked out in lines of gold, subtle, elegant, and very original. Or combine with a pink dress—so Valentino!
Black is stunning, day or night—try the black pashmina with gold lace swirled over a little black dress or evening gown—so classically elegant. Or black with black lace over red. As for the blues, the lovely soft periwinkle blue pashmina with cream lace picked out in gold looks wonderful with a cream outfit—or, if you prefer, contrasting flame as per this season’s Joseph. And the Wedgwood blue and white lace also looks amazing over white—and with fuchsia and white (as per Issey Miyake) it is eye-popping. The dark cream pashmina with blending dark cream lace picked out in gold, worn over muted earth tones, is romance personified.
Measuring a full 7ft 2in long by 3ft 1in wide, the Violetta is large enough to make an impression and drapes beautifully over an outfit. Each colour is beautiful, and highly original, so choose from: pink with gold lace (above), bright Wedgwood blue with cream lace (pictured), pale periwinkle blue with gold lace, black with gold lace, black with black lace, cream with cream lace. Beautifully handmade in 70% pashm and 30% silk, they make a luxurious gift.
