PREMIERE COLLECTION H O L I D AY 2 0 1 2 / R E S O RT 2 0 1 3
Artisan-Crafted in Italy Each piece has been hand crafted in a small town located in the outskirts of the magnificent city of Florence. The product is made of modal, which is a durable and natural yarn. The modal is woven on an old-fashioned loom to create a smooth, supple, light and luxurious fabric. Skilled artisans then apply their centuries-old technique of cutting and fringing every piece by hand.
‘ INTERLUDES ’ MOMENTS OF INSPIRATION HOLIDAY 2012 / RESORT 2013 COLLECTION
Individual style is fashioned by everything that surrounds us. We find it in our daily lives, the places we visit, in the people we meet and in the ideas they share with us. We are free to outwardly express ourselves with what we love and with the desire to emotionally connect with other people. Beauty and elegance is in the simplicity and in the harmony of natural elements. ‘Wearable art’ is how I like to describe the scarves created for this collection. Each piece is printed with a photograph selected from my most cherished and personal life anthologies—photographs that capture the beauty and power inherent in nature and in that immediate, intimate and fleeting moment in time. To your passion, Sheila Johnson
