Children of Lir Paisley Skinny Silk Scarf: Silk Twill £95
Ltd edition of 300, 100% silk twill with a handrolled edge, 23cm x 203cm
One of the first Irish myths that really stuck in my head was the story of The Children of Lir. Maybe because it was about swans, and I was obsessed with ballet and Swan Lake, or maybe because part of it was reputed to have taken place not far from where I grew up, on the north coast of Ireland. The area around Ballycastle, Kinbane Castle and Rathlin Island have strong connections with this legend... The Sea of Moyle.
I have explored this story through print in previous
seasons, but this season I wanted to give it a bohemian rock and roll twist, a homage to my 70s style icons, so I created a cool swirling Paisley print incorporating a delicate swan shape into a night sky background.
Please note that due to the nature of silk and with the scarves being printed in small batches that colours can vary slightly, although we try our best to ensure continuity. Due to this and computer/ phone screen settings the colours can look a little different to above.
