MODERN FLANEURS INTERVIEW

I was recently interviewed by ardent traveller, writer, and business coach Cathy Becq, for her excellent blog Modern Flaneurs

The first time I went to Sydney, I spotted a beautiful tiny shop called SKARFE in Potts Point dedicated only to…scarves. The window was beautifully dressed, with colourful scarves arranged in the form of a giant ice cream cone. The shop was closed, so I returned another time to discover what it has to offer.

When I entered, I was greeted by owner Brad McGlashan who showed me his gorgeous collections, which are a result of a close collaboration with contemporary artists.

I spent quite a long time in the shop and it turned into a full-fledged interview as Brad talked me through his concept. Here are some abstracts of our conversation. Read on

OBJECT OF DESIRE

Brad McGlashan

We're over the moon to have one of our artist collaboration scarves selected as this week's 'Object of Desire' by the Sydney Morning Herald, and Melbourne's The Age newspaper. Jess Johnson's limited edition Gilgamesh scarf was the pick of the series:

We’re all wrapped up in these oversized silk
scarves courtesy of Sydney outfit Skarfe’s new
collaboration with acclaimed artist Jess Johnson.
Born in New Zealand, Johnson was based in
Melbourne for 10 years before relocating to New
York, and she confesses to a passionate interest
in sci-fi, parallel universes and comic books. In
Gilgamesh (left), a gorgeous medley of colours and
prints inspired by the ancient epic poem, translates
superbly onto an expanse of wearable silk.
