One of the new season’s most practical fashion statements is all about keeping warm using vibrant patterned shawls. The new bold shawls are a punchy accent to solid black, grey and neutral colours—a great way to work in a fun pattern without going over the top—and our new Patio de Los Leones Shawl is fabulous.
It is elegantly styled in a trio of shades of coffee, chocolate and grey/beige, its border decorated with more than 40 large hand-sewn faceted beads—and its colour palette is reminiscent of the famous Patio of the Lions in the Alhambra, with its tiles and marble and friezes (hence the name).
So striking with everything from trousers to a jacket, dress or suit, it adds flair to the rich dark hues of next autumn as well as the nudes and beiges of spring—this is a stole that will take you from one season to the next.
Wrap it around several times or tie once loosely past the nape of your neck to give it a darling drape. Wear it over a jacket for extra warmth, or instead of one when you think the weather has warmed up—but you are not sure! The shawl is 2ft 5in (74cm) wide by 6ft 10in (208cm) long and is wool with a touch of viscose.
