SCARF TRAVELLER

There can be no denying that Australia is the home of some of the worlds greatest treasures, but why, oh, why does it have to be so far away from everywhere else?! Unlike those lucky ones in the Northern Hemisphere, the mere exercise of jumping on a plane to visit a foreign land for a day or two, is not only exhausting but can be rather taxing on the bank account. But oh how we long to see more. While some of us armchair travellers may get our travel fix from Instagram or flicking through the pages of Gourmet Traveller, it is scarf label Bird & Knoll who satiates our wanderlust.

Each season they invite us to escape to far off lands, with their luxurious cashmere blend scarves acting like windows to different destinations around the world. This season they have provided us with a one-way ticket to Greece, Italy and Morocco. The images are so vivid, so enticing one can almost touch the trinkets hanging in a market stall in Athens; count the tiles paving the lofty heights of the Piazza del Duomo in Florence; and smell the North African flavours of a spice alley in a Moroccan souk. Like fabricated postcards, each scarf swirls into a blend of colours and patterns, capturing not only the essence and escapism of travel, but the visual make-up of what the world has to offer. Envelope yourself in the journey - no passport required!

WHEN OPERA MET JASMINE: NEW FROM BIRD & KNOLL

Brad McGlashan

East meets West with “When Opera met Jasmine”, the inspired A/W 2017 showcase of wearable wanderlust from Australia / New Zealand accessories label Bird & Knoll. 

Introducing six new additions to Bird & Knoll’s celebrated collection of luxurious, oversized scarves, each piece depicts an image of an iconic destination, captured via the camera lens of Natalie Knoll and transposed on to the wearable canvas of the scarf. Charting a rich cross-cultural journey, “When Opera Met Jasmine” traverses the globe and celebrates in the rich and colourful imagery of eastern and western culture. 

The collection merges designers Natalie Knoll and Macayla Chapman’s visual storytelling of far-flung global destinations including London, New York, Tuscany, Bali, New Zealand and Hong Kong, with their tactile cashmere-blend. This season the duo debut a stunning Italian blend of cashmere and modal woven in the foothills of Como, Italy. The new fabrication represents the perfect warmer complement to Bird & Knoll’s existing lightweight eastern wraps and the ultimate tactile harmony. 

“When we initially researched our signature composition we knew that we wanted cashmere, but as beautiful as it is it can ‘pill’ and ‘pull’. The modal, a fibre derived from the beech tree, makes it strong and hard-wearing and coupled with the cashmere it remains a beautiful soft canvas for our imagery. As well as its durability, it travels extremely well, packs really small and light and decreases very quickly when hung over a door or chair,” explains Natalie Knoll. “We love the versatility of cashmere and modal too,” adds Macayla Chapman. “So easy to wear as a wrap, a scarf, a sarong and a headscarf.”

The Bali, New Zealand and Hong Kong scarves are made from Bird & Knoll’s ‘Eastern’ fabrication, a lightweight mix of 10% cashmere and 90% modal. The Italian collection, woven in Como, Italy, is a slightly more ‘wintery’ combination of 20% cashmere and 80% modal, making for an even softer and more luxurious handle.
