Silks for Spring May 07, 2015 16:04

Silk is one of our favorite fabrics. Legends claim that a Chinese Empress learned to develop silk and invented the silk loom in the 27th Century BC. Synonymous with luxury since ancient times, the soft smooth texture is a joy to wear and light weight makes it versatile. Embroidered, textured, distressed, or painted, we love the way silk looks and feels. 

Silk scarves have long been a classic. We love these examples from Cocoon House, bringing classic works of art to a new medium. Inspired by great artists such as Hiroshige and Van Gogh, these scarves make a sophisticated statement whether paired with matching items or against solid colors to highlight the art of the accessory. 

And of course, we cannot talk about silk without Citron. Their signature silk fukure, or embossed silk, gives the fabric a beautiful accent in addition to the wearable art of their designs. 

We love a light silk cardigan for work or formal occasions in spring. Perfect for layering in warmer weather and with a timeless elegance, beautifully draped silk never goes out fashion.
