Bid For A Bespoke Designer Scarf

A collection of one-off silk scarves hand-painted by some of the UK’s hottest names is up for auction...

Designer Julien Macdonald is just one of seven designers and artists who have created silk scarves to be auctioned by Mary Portas’s Living & Giving shops in support of Save the Children’s newborn campaign.

‘Being approached to create a bold scarf print for a charity such as ‘Save the Children’ was an honour,’ said Macdonald. ‘I immediately wanted it to be fun and colourful! Drawing from the classic childlike inspiration of a children’s party, I chose to focus on a clown with lots of party balloons and glitter! I even pulled out some sparkling crystals to give it a bit more texture.  I think the scarf encompasses the energetic and lively feel that this project portrays and I had a lot of fun producing it!’
The base for each design is luxury accessories label Age of Reason’s Anarchy Jack scarf, a faded version of the Union Jack, representing chaos and hope.
