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.
