Shaded Pashminas for AW11/12

Shading can be an effective way to match a shawl in with your outfit. These shawls all shade from one end to the other - the pashmina is dipped by hand into the dye and then gradually drawn out. The end removed first is the paler version of the colour, and the end that is left the longest gets the more intense shade. This can be applied to the whole shawl for the self-shaded colours such as Turquoise to paler, or to part of the shawl (Black to White). The colours available are Café au Lait to paler, Black to White, Pewter grey to Silver Birch and Turquoise to paler.

Green (4) - Pashmina swatch colours

I love both of these greens and both go well with my colouring which is dark with olive skin. The forest green would also suit red heads and blondes. Daring red heads might also fall for the apple! Left: Forest Green 173; Right: Apple Green 9

Blue (4) - Pashmina swatch colour

To continue the autumn 2011 theme of robust blues, here are too absolute beauties.... left; Cobalt Blue 352 and right; Blue Jean 70 which is classed as a mid blue jean and is just marginally darker than blue jean 69.

A must-have combination with black this season.

Chiffon with organza border colour choices

Colours: Orange Juice, Turquoise, Fuchsia, Dark Aqua, Mid Grey, Blush Red, Shaded Turquoise to Rose Pink

When I was considering which of our stock to feature on our colour blocking feature, these chiffon shawls stood out. We've never had them online before and it will be interesting to see your reaction to them. They could become one of our classics, just as the ultra simple and wearable large shaded chiffons.

Very much a 'sari' style, the long edges are piped with organza; the two ends have a more substantial organza seal on both sides of the shawl. The organza is tonal and has an irridescence that adds to the wow factor of the piece.
