Mary Portas Limited Edition Scarves: A Collaboration with RCA Student Peter Bailey

It might look sunny outside but it’s only early spring and there’s still a chill in the air. It’s too warm for a winter coat and too cold for summer staples but savvy dressers know that the humble scarf is the simple solution.

New for April, these printed scarves are made in Italy exclusively for Mary Portas stores. Mary was so impressed by the work of Royal College of Art MA student Peter Bailey that she invited him to collaborate on some of the limited edition collection. “Peter’s digital floral prints are stunning; like wearable works of art and fit in beautifully with this season’s trends for saturated colour and vivid florals.”

The original photographs that create the base of the digital rose silk scarves were taken in Peter’s own garden; “I liked the idea of taking something fragile and delicate and digitalising it to make it sharp and modern”.

Hi I'm Kate, in a previous life I was Womenswear Editor but these days you are more likely to find me pouring over a planning calendar than the latest copy of Elle in my role as Online Content Producer. A Northern tourist in London, some of my favourite things in life include red wine, chutney (accompanied by cheese), sequins, grey cashmere and Matt Damon. I am known in the HoF office for owning far too many coats for one person, laughing too loud, and drinking full fat Coke only when hungover. My life's ambition is a simple one; to own a Puggle.
