Fabryan Scarves – A perfect Christmas fashion gift

If you are struggling for what to buy for that beautiful lady in your life this Christmas, it may be worth you taking a look at the exquisite scarves produced by Fabryan. Inspired by the most English of gardens, the beautiful Kew Gardens in London, the 100% silk scarves designed by Samantha-Jane Agbontaen are divine pieces of fashion that are also beautiful works of art, made using unique, digital printed techniques.

Fabryan scarves are just the perfect present this Christmas, and for so many different reasons. They will appeal to your vintage loving ladies because the wispy silk has a real 1930s feel, something only accentuated by the beautiful Deco style gift box the scarf comes in. They will appeal to girls who are ecologically sound as they tick all the boxes in this area;-  they are made from organic silk,  sourced locally if possible. And of course they will appeal to lovers of fashion, being a beautiful and versatile way to change even the simplest outfit into something special.

Fabryan very kindly sent me a beautiful pink scarf from the Psychedelic Collection. The ‘Pink Lines’ scarf has proved such a great addition to my A/W wardrobe. It is surprisingly large and so you can actually wear this around the neck, unlike some square scarves that leave you looking like a highwayman. And the watered pink colour look so great with so many shades, making it something you can wear everyday. I’ve worn this over a sweater for a smart daytime look, and also with a winter coat to lighten the look.

A stunning Ness and Pepper silk scarf.

One of the greatest things about being a fashion blogger is the opportunity to discover new design talents who bring something different to the style world. A recent discovery of mine, and one which I have just fallen in love with, is the wonderful world of Ness and Pepper scarves. The range was launched this season and is the brainchild of Award Winning photographer Vanessa Warren.  The beautiful designs and prints on her Chinese silk scarves are inspired by her fashion photography, and her travels around the world. And they are truly awe-inspiring in their beauty.

The Ness and Pepper collection features Vanessa’s four statement pieces, Untitled Stars, Colombian Roses, Double Act and Amazon Lillies, which are all handmade using photos from her work. This has created a wonderfully  striking collection that is just full of vibrant colour and fantasy.

My favourite design is the Untitled Stars scarf, which draws inspiration from an abstract series entitled ‘Dream’,  this is a story of reflections on water in the midday sun, with swirls and colour meshing that is just breathtaking. For me, this calls to mind the best work of Peter Pilotto and Christopher Kane, in a sort of celestial wonder. I was sent this scarf in order to review the product and found that I was wearing it everywhere, it is light and delicate enough to keep in the smallest handbag so you can add it to an outfit to change it from day to evening,  The other designs are Colombian Roses, Double Act, and Amazon Lilies inspired by the  piranha infested waters of the Amazon.

These scarves are truly unique, and I love the fact that they are perfect for every occasion, whether it be worn over a simple vest top and skinny jeans for a cool daytime look, or draped over your favourite little black dress. I would also say these would be very functional for travelling – drape it over your shoulders for a walk along the seafront, tie a larger scarf around the waist as a sarong, take it on the plane for when the cool air conditioning kicks in.
