Dark Floral Silk Satin Limone Scarf
This 100% silk scarf features Ellie’s original, dramatic ‘Dark Floral’ design, inspired by the still life paintings of the Dutch Golden Age. On this flowing, shiny, silk charmeuse fabric, the drama and poetry of this floral print are enhanced.
For this floral scarf, Ellie has selected a silk satin limone fabric, which is a luxurious, lightweight (39 gr/m2), semi-transparent, 100% silk fabric with a smooth, satin finish on one side and a matte finish on the other. It drapes beautifully, and has a soft, breathable texture which is lovely against the skin. It can be dry cleaned and ironed at a medium temperature.
The charmeuse is less transparent than the voile version of this scarf. The satin surface of the charmeuse reflects light while the matte surface of the voile absorbs it. This gives the print a more contrasty appearance.
In its incarnation as a wallpaper, ‘Dark Floral’ has been featured in magazines like Vogue, Elle, MarieClaire, Residence, LivingEtc, Town&Country, Domino, Better Homes and Gardens and blogs like Architectural Digest, Cupcakes & Cashmere, decor8, The Design Files, and Real Genevieve.
‘Dark Floral’ has an essentially black-and-white base palette, which is complimented by warm, earthy greens in the foliage behind the flowers, pops of red at the center of a single flower, and pastels (light blue, yellow, pink, coral and off-white appear on other flowers).
These are all options for color coordination! We like to ‘frame’ this printed scarf with gold jewelry and toughen it up in conjunction with leather and/or textured knits. How will you wear it?
Each Ellie Cashman Design© scarf is finished with a textile logo label and comes packaged in a branded black box that you can use to store your scarf whenever you're not wearing it.
