As a luxury print house obsessed with travel, every season we have to include our iconic city scene scarves. These prints in particular are perfect for creating what we call ‘The Big Reveal’: that moment when you realise that the hints of print that you spot when you wrap up in your scarf actually come together to reveal a complete scene of your favourite city.
There's so much sentimental value attached to these prints, like our Heath scarf, which was designed using a photo taken by Creative Director Alice Stone of her favourite spot in London, Hampstead Heath. We have customers choose city prints to celebrate their wedding anniversaries, birthdays or as a chic memento to remind someone of their favourite cities. One customer told us she has a city scene scarf framed in her house - we love that.
To celebrate their Silk Road package, we're delighted to collaborate with luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent on this limited edition city scene scarf. Stretching across 7000 kilometers, China’s ancient silk route saw silk, gold, semi-precious stones, spices and perfumes transported from the Far East to as far as Europe. Using this as inspiration for this exclusive print, Lily and Lionel has designed the Shanghai scarf, one of just 50 made.
