We hear it takes 200 silkworms to spin enough material for your average scarf.
Putting the little guys at risk of exhaustion? Forget Me Not, Coco Brun’s collection of supersize pure silk scarves. An extension of her work as a fashion illustrator, the French-born Brun’s whimsical collection combines intricate drawings and watercolour images using digital printing. Among her inspirations: animal totems, fairy tales and other esoteric imagery.
Get wrapped up in a fantasy world of butterflies, snakes, seashells and tropical birds in flattering shades of blue, purple and coral as well as easy-to-wear black, grey and beige.
Coming next season: turbans, kaftans, ponchos and headbands — everything you need to craft a cocoon of your own.
Available at Harrods, 87-135 Brompton Road, SW3 1QE (020 7730 1234); online at forget-me-not.me, £125-£210.
