Victoria Smyth’s ‘Hong Kong Shutter Scarf’ is the scarf about town -

Uptown meets Downtown. An urban theme swirls into a bold combination of oranges, greens and greys, lending itself to a myriad of outfit options.

For the Uptown woman, tie it over Lanvin’s ‘throw-on-and-go’ khaki dress; give the look a glamorous twist with Simon Harrison’s intricate bear cuff and claw earrings (these pieces will stop people in their tracks!). A sharp pointed toe flat is a MUST in every wardrobe and these two offerings from Mercedes Castillo and Malone Souliers are both chic and contemporary. Finish the look with a pair of cat-eye sunnies and Fendi’s new Dotcom bag - subtle enough to compliment the patterns in the scarf and also a worthy statement investment.

Now, for the Downtown girl. Look no further than Givenchy’s paillette dress— for who can resist a bit of sparkle! Dare to wear this piece during the day by donning a pair of pristine kicks and twisting the scarf into a turban. Pared-back jewellery, such as MPNT’s single earring and Sarah and Sebastian’s ring keeps the look sharp and modern, while Fendi’s fluro baguette teamed with furry friend or Shrimps' vintage-inspired beaded bag adds a quirky finish. Uptown, downtown all-around-town Victoria Smythe’s scarf is the working accessory.

Victoria Smyth is a Potts Point local, whose many talents include nature photography. Victoria and her two gorgeous labradoodles were regular visitors at skarfe, then when we discovered her photography, we encouraged her to transform them into beautiful scarves! 

Having taken photographs in Aspen, Colorado, what inspired you to want to translate these onto scarves? Where did the idea stem from?

The photographs I took of bark from the Aspen tree were really taken out of curiosity.  The marks on the trunks were so expressive that I wanted to record them.  It was only when I saw the enlarged image that I saw how beautiful they were up close and so I wanted to do something with the images.  Scarves have long been an enjoyment of mine so the idea came quite naturally.

Your work started whilst on holiday in Aspen. However, your brand now also exemplifies the beauty of nature in Australia. When you photograph in Sydney, which suburbs attract you the most? And although your scarves are all quite distinct, they are all linked through your choice of subdued, natural colours. What attracts you to this tonal palette over more striking, vivid colours?

I photograph wherever I happen to be. It is almost an obsession now I’m afraid - even my friends are taking photos for me on their holidays and recommending places to visit.  Yes, my palette is quite subdued at the moment but that is largely the result of the nature of the bark.  In my next collection I will have some very beautiful and strong coloured scarves from photographs taken last summer in Sydney - the bark changes dramatically depending on the time of the year and some of the new bark is spectacular. 

Have you ever been formally trained in the arts or as a photographer?

I trained as an architect and then much, much later as a colour consultant.  I have worked in design and architectural heritage too but have always dabbled in design and colour. This latest project is a bit new as I have had to learn a bit about business!
