Australian Indigenous artists are creating some incredible artworks. Combining tradition with modern principles, we are now seeing dot paintings rendered in vibrant hues such as fuchsia, electric blue and sunflower yellow. Scarf label, One of Twelve understands the power of these works and their place in modern culture. Collaborating with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island artists, such as Samuel Miller, these scarves make a fashion statement.
Miller’s ‘Ngayuku Ngura’ silk satin scarf is alive with colours and would breathe new life into any look. However, we’ve decided to give this piece an American Hustle makeover by teaming it with Sies Marjan’s creased metallic trench coat and Jimmy Choo’s white sock boot (side bar: white boots are going to be a big trend this winter, just remember not to wear them on rainy days!). Schield’s leggy earrings hit the right notes with their contemporary design, while The Volon’s sequin embellished bag picks up the rainbow of colours in Miller’s scarf.
At first sight this is an outfit built on the classics: a trench coat, ankle boots, Jackie O sunglasses and a neat box bag (a shape worthy of The Queen), yet like Miller’s scarf, each piece challenges convention and proves that tradition can live outside the box.
