Neck It

Discovery is that beautiful moment where chance and delight are brought together serendipitously. It often happens when you least expect it and when it does occur and you stumble upon something individual and special, acquire it because as is usual in life you won’t find it again. Sure you’ll find something similar but won’t be exactly the right colour, shape, texture or design. The moment will have passed and so will the opportunity.

My chance meeting with discovery happened at London’s Southbank, in the shadow of the OXO Tower a small sign read ‘London Design Fair’. The glass fronted showrooms bustled with life and objets of various boutique proportions.

Curiosity dragged me in by the lapels and amongst the ceramics, jewellery and artisanal homeware I came across a series of narrow scarves backed in an ink drawn map of London dating from 1929, rendered against the ceramic pink of the British Empire and the aqua marine of the river. Reversed with a mix of different textures, soft wools, cashmere or tweed. Less of winter woolly and more of a comforter. Wonderfully inspired and created by Helen Chatterton from Perfection of Production. The Maharani summed up the purchase, “fit for a dandy”.
