A contemporary designer scarf expertly printed onto luxurious merino wool and silk, exploring the tortuous bond between Mercury and the Sun.Crisp pin-stripes representing solar radiation stream from our sun in a design of buttery yellow, deep blues, rich purple and intense red. This piece of wearable art brings brings both light and dark outfits to life with its split between the bright star and the darkness of space. The typographic hem is inscribed with planetary data for the ultimate in geek chic. Science aside, for the more esoteric among us, this makes a great gift idea for Gemini and Virgo friends. The scarves come in two options: The full-size luxurious merino wool scarf and a medium sized neckerchief in pure silk. Both sizes come with premium hand-finished hems and beautiful branded gift boxes.
Mercury endures a complicated relationship with our Sun. It is bound in a complex dance with an erratic orbit which makes it seem to be tidally locked (showing only one side to the Sun). In fact Mercury slowly rotates around three times for every two times it revolves around the Sun but the effect on this tortured celestial body is the same. The planet’s day side is an incandescent 430ºC and the night side a bone-chilling -180ºC.
Merino Wool Pocket Square (42x42cm)
The larger option in 100% Italian merino wool is a generous pocket square that is big enough to create interesting folds, use as a small neckerchief or even to wrap around your favourite summer hat.
It's woven with a luxurious wool which takes the colours beautifully and has a surprisingly soft texture. It also makes for a less shiny accessory than traditional silk for those who prefer more of an 'understated luxury' feel. The fabric is light and with its loose weave grips the pocket avoiding that annoying pocket square slippage!
This wool pochette has the added luxury of hand-rolled hems which means that the stitching is invisible and the hem has an gorgeous look when shown in-pocket.
Silk Twill Pocket Square (30x30cm)
This pocket square is ideal for a smaller pocket or a particularly tight fitting jacket where you don't want to destroy the lines with a bulky pocket square. Although small it is perfectly formed from beautiful quality silk twill with a neatly double stitched hem.
Large Merino Wool Scarf (100cm x 100cm)
These are beautiful scarves at 100cm size in the gorgeous Italian Merino Wool. The weave is loose meaning that there is a lovely translucent quality to the fabric. It's also lightweight and easy to throw round the neck but, being wool, it does actually keep you very warm. It's idea for wearing on a summer evening or with an outdoor coat in winter.
Silk Twill Midi-Scarf (65cm x 65cm)
An in-between sized scarf for guys and girls it makes a perfect neckerchief. It's more of an every day scarf than the more voluminous full-sized version but just as special. And of course, being printed onto luxurious silk twill, the colours are delightful.
