Vibrant new Liberty London pure silk scarf, ‘Jewel’, from the new collection
Our Liberty of London Silk Scarf Collection has just arrived for AW18/19—and it’s magical. Named ‘Jewel’, it’s an archival Liberty scarf design dating from 1966—a time when the vibrancy and extravagance of Liberty scarf prints was already iconic. Arthur Liberty himself said, ‘I am determined not to follow existing fashion, but create new ones’, and you only have to look at this pattern to see what he meant. Bold, geometric, linear, it has roots in Nature, history and religion. Within the gorgeous vintage gem colours of the stained glass there fly a kaleidoscope of butterflies, wings outstretched. This is a very desirable piece of art and design.
Beautifully elegant, head-turning, it embodies the rich colours of stained glass, glowing in fabulous jewel colours: garnet, ruby, emerald and sapphire, a touch of citrine, stunning colours highlighted all the more for being edged in black to complete the leaded lights effect. It is vintage, but has a very contemporary style.
This is the art scarf to lift a plain look. It adds the wow factor to many outfits, particularly block colours—navy and black are stunning. The pure silk infinity scarf, double sided, simply flows around the neck with a drape that makes it look wonderful. Wear it long and loose, or doubled for a shorter, fuller look. As ever with Liberty, the deep colour results in a luxurious and expressive interpretation of the pattern. This lovely Liberty silk scarf, handmade by Lady Crow, arrives in a gift box, making a discerning present which any woman will adore.
