It seems that 2012 is destined to be remembered as the year of the scarf print. Whether this is a tribute to Her Majesty in her jubilee year, a woman who really knows how to rock a Liberty printed headscarf, or whether this is a quest to find something different in the form of beautifully designed prints that look equally as good on a scarf or on a dress, I’m really not sure. But what I do know is that the scarf print seems here to stay.
Wallis is the latest High Street brand to get in on the scarf print. Aspiring print director Lollie Dunbar has designed an exquisite seven piece capsule collection featuring a range of beautiful prints inspired by travels to Eygpt and Venice, as well as Jewellery and textile work from the Pitt Museum in Oxford. Using a colour palette of navy and white with accents of orange, she has created some classic pieces.
There are kimono jackets, gorgeously floaty maxi dresses and palazzo pants, along with a range of scarves that are perfect for those who want to embrace print, but feel that a dress is just too much. My personal favourite piece is the halter scarf maxi dress, which would like fabulous at a summer wedding.
