Forget Me Not’s AW10 Take on Folklore.

October 20, 2010
Adding a silk scarf to your ensemble is a bit like taking the risk of downing that drink that’s one drink too many. Well, for me, anyway, considering I don’t happen to possess that physical air of artistic haughtiness that lends itself so well to such accessories. Still, there’s a first time for everything and I’ve been meaning to track down a suitable style to team with a roughed-up biker jacket (the search continues…), lean trousers, and penny loafers, and I reckon I may have just found the top contender… 
Forget Me Not is the brainchild of fash illustrator Coco (who’s crafted commissions for everyone from Vogue to Elle). The AW10 collection, entitled Mythology, is inspired by the myths of Ancient Greece, and sets itself apart as a range digitally printed silk scarves that are eye-catching (the collection features graphic drawings of beetles and birds) but also easily pulled off, sparing you ostentatious dandy fabulousness (they’re black and white), although I can’t quite guarantee the lookbook will do the same.

    to be blunt i'm not sure if i'm a fan, i'm drawing to the first one in a morbid way because i'm sure i'd get unpleasant goosebumps if i wore anything with beatles on. but when they're styled on the mannequin they look better. i guess with most things its how you wear it!

    Izzy: Thought you might like them!Zoe: Hmm, I actually feel the opposite, in that I think the look-book shots don't do them justice or kind of prettify them to a (personally) distasteful level. But yeah, you're right, it's all in the wearing!C.
