“Wonderland” is the perfect fantasy for the SS 10 season. Inspiration flows from the pages of Lewis Carol’s Alice in Wonderland, from the exquisite illustrations of John Tenniel depicting the fantastical world beyond the rabbit hole, and is recast in a modern light as a collection of digitally printed silk scarves. Each design has been meticulously rendered by hand, and serves as an extension of Coco’s work as a highly coveted fashion illustrator.
The muse finds herself transported in ink into three distinct fantasy worlds, which serve as stages of what must surely be a most marvelous adventure. In one instant she sits amongst an explosion of oversized lilies and musical notes, which swirl around bending bars of sound. In another she stands holding a deck of cards, seemingly beckoning us past a grouping of feathers and flamingos to take a closer look.
The third is a boudoir abstraction of whirling timepieces, mechanisms, and upholstery finishings.
Strong geometric shapes and backgrounds serve as a counterpoint to elegant drawings and swirling realities, giving the sublimely feminine illustrations a stronger, modern appeal. Each scarf design comes in 3 colour ways, in which brighter and more neutral tones are carefully considered and utilized expertly to give each composition a unique appeal.
