Something a little luxury for you this Thursday – I’m so excited to share this with you.
I’m delighted to share with you silk scarf designer Celia Gould. Her designs are influenced and inspired by seemingly mundane snippets of urban settings around the world – Cairo, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Geneva – and yet transformed into a strip of beautiful silk chiffon it becomes something entirely different : a work of art. She also has a softer collection inspired by nature – the colours in this collection are obviously brighter and more summery in my view. She is the wife of a British Diplomat, and therefore travels a lot – wow! How exciting!
I am sharing the Cairo Scarf with you today – when in discussion with Celia about choosing, it was just too hard to do! They’re all beautiful – yet because of my colouring I was leaning toward something with cool tones. She selected this one for me, as it happens, and I love it.
The design was inspired by an enormous apartment block building Celia spotted when traveling over the river Nile in a taxi! She told me that she yelled at the driver to stop, as taken by a sudden burst on inspiration, she snapped this photograph which became this rather unusual yet striking design.
This is a luxury item, and comes in the most beautiful purple box. I was rather exciting opening it all up!
I don’t have a very co-operative husband when it comes to photographing outfits, so I managed alone here. I tried to show it worn in a few different ways and lighting levels (flash, no flash etc) so you can see the beauty of the design.
Thank you so much Celia for sending this beautiful scarf! I will enjoy wearing it all year round. Go and say hi to Celia on social media, or visit her website, Instagram – Celia.gould and Facebook – celiagouldscarves.
