As the last weeks of cold weather (we swear!) try our patience, we’re finding relief in the vibrant depictions of beautiful flowers that lie behind some of our new spring arrivals. These brightly colored, extremely detailed blossoms practically sing “spring”—and show how floral motifs never go out of fashion.
Featuring a collage of bountiful blooms, our 100% silk twill Botanical Blossoms Scarf ($125) offers vivid colors that will make any outfit brighter. Adorning this accessory are reproductions of naturalistic illustrations from the 19th century, published by the Horticultural Society of London (now Royal Horticultural Society). This organization was founded in 1804 with the purpose of studying and improving horticulture; its articles were collected in Transactions of the Horticultural Society of London, published periodically from 1812 to 1842. The foremost British horticultural journal of its time, it featured superb hand-colored engravings, including the rich floral images such as those seen on our scarf.
We celebrate the detail of these beautiful illustrations in an original way with our die-cut Botanical Blossoms Notecards ($25). These beautifully printed cards come in shapes that mirror the edge of the petals from each respective illustration. Use these cards to send greetings of the new spring season—or to brighten anyone’s day during the coldest months.
