Young, bold, and ambitious with a traditional and spiritual edge, my ‘Dubai Edition’ scarves are inspired by my trip to Dubai earlier in the year. Each print its inspired by a unique part of the Dubai’s ever-changing milieu; from the sun-kissed scorching heat of the dessert, to the lights and energy of it’s night life to it’s iconic skyscrapers under a azure skyline and whilst in Dubai promoting the scarves I felt it was only fitting to wear the scarves out to the locations that inspired them.
First up is ‘Royal Place’. This retro-futurist scarf marks the architecture for a utopian Dubai. Predominantly I conjured up a more exotic image of what lay inside the toppling skyscrapers by fusing influences from Indian architecture and interiors with Islamic motives to create this lavish yet playful kaleidoscopic print.
Inspired by my own ambitions for the architecture that surrounds the marina, make the ‘Royal Palace’ a perfect accessory for dinner at Toro Toro at Grovsners House.
Next up is my Mixologist’s Delight scarf worn at the Marriott Hotel (again in the Marina). This near-neon lit scarf is filled with the noise, lights and energy of Dubai’s night life. When I was designing this print I kept thinking back to happy hour at the Observatory, on the top floor of the Mariott Hotel, Dubai Marina. Whilst enjoying mt happy hout cocktail I was blown away with the panoramic views across the city from the Observatory so I got my sketchbook out and started sketching a scraf worthy of the delicious cocktails and breathtaking views across the Palms.
The soft, lightweight Mixologist’s Delight features designer cocktails, Islamic motifs and Dubai skyscrapers blended and served like a cocktail at the Mariott.
On a recent trip to the island of Capri in Italy I came across the beautiful boutique La Parissienne . Opened 1906 and best known for introducing Capri pants in the 1960s, famously worn by Audrey Hepburn (who bought them from here), La Parissienne can run you up a made-to-measure pair within a day. They also sell off-the-hook Capri pants (from €200).
I love their use of bright vibrant prints and light summer digitally printed kaftans and inspired by the feel of my next look book (Capri pants won with bright silk georgette scarves with Aubdrey Hepburn inspired make up anyone?).
The website itself is worth a visit for its nostalgic feel of old Italian glamour.

We are feeling very inspired by the old school glamour of Hollywood, and how Elizabeth, Marylin and Audrey wore their scraves.
I wanted to share with you these beautiful knits I saw at a recent trip to Florence.
I love the over use of Jacquard to create print effects on knit and the cute detailing on sleeves and ruffles on skirts.
Looks like tie due, rustic colour schemes and layering are going to be big in A/W 12/13!
