Designer: CHARLOTTE LINTON

18 Feb

With NYFW done and dusted we’re taking a hop skip and jump across the pond to London where LFW has just kicked off. We’ll be posting all the thrills, spills, and dills from there later this week, but while we’re in town (yes, the UK in my mind…whatever), I thought it worthwhile to let y’all know about Charlotte Linton – creator of handsdown the most amazing prints I’ve seen this year (sorry Suno, that includes you).  Charlotte is a London-based designer whose printed scarves leave us in paroxysms of delight. Her collection is based around the narrative of a fictional muse named Ermentrude, who travels the world in a swathe of colour. Ermantrude’s wanderings  through far-flung locales such as Java and Madagascar provide the reference point for the whimsical and phantasmagorical images that are then printed on silk and wool scarves. You can follow Ermantrude’s travels (and check out Charlotte’s gorgeous illustrations) here. You can also buy pieces from here 2011 collaboration with Anthropologie here.  But really – its all about the scarves, isn’t it? Check them out below (pssstt….are they perfect for turban-ing or what?) and head over to Charlotte’s website to order.
