Saturated Pastels for Spring

Colorful spring flowers are the inspiration for our Spring 2012 Collection. These florals go beyond your average garden party print. There is nothing as soft as silk against your skin.
They are modern and complex ranging from a soft-focus painterly effect to sharp and bold graphic florals. It's all about mixing prints this season, mix it up and have fun with it!
Soft pastel dogwood flowers on a pale robins egg blue and lime green lattice are juxtaposed while a slash of black enclosing stylized peacock feathers adds a modern touch. Wear this pretty satin trimmed shawl with white linen trousers and a solid colored camisole or with your favorite LBD.
Coral or peach is always flattering to wear near your face. Note the vintage caged agate chain on the limited edition Spring Scarflette above.  Can you imagine this paired with white linen or denim or to brighten up your day to day business attire?
Butterfly Peacock Feather Ruana
This dreamy hand painted silk chiffon ruana inspires over-the-top style decorated with colorful peacock feathers combined with butterfly wings. I call it "Spring Fantasy"

Softly feminine, draped and embellished, it's all part of the luxe spring style we're seeing this year. You've got nothing to lose and everything to gain if you add a pop of color to your style. It's so easy to do with a colorful silk scarf for your day and evening looks!
Pink and turquoise chiffon is uniquely embellished with gold hand painted Egyptian Peacock.
This is a casual wear-with-everything silk mesh scarf featuring hand-tied fringe, white sprinkled with lime and turquoise is particularly pretty and will easily transition from spring to summer.
This painterly washed out silver satin devore would not be out of place at a summer garden party. We love this lime green and pink color combo - sexy and demure at the same time!
