Light weight wool mughal print scarf by Drake’s London
Sometimes a little bit of color or unusual pattern can bring an appropriate amount of edge to otherwise quite classic and simple winter ensemble. Here the orange mughal printed scarf by Drake’s is worn together with a checked flannel suit by G.Abo Napoli, made-to-order grenadine tie made by Arcuri Cravatte and shirt from Kamakura. Pocket square from The Tie Bar and shoes by Carmina.
The scarf pictured - which I’ve been longing for (in this particular color) since I saw it the first time at Pitti Uomo last January when it was featured at the Drake’s London collection for this fall and winter season - was given to me as a Christmas gift by my spouse. As said by a friend of mine, best gifts are something one really wants but for some reason are not able to get or ready to spend their money on - something that are special and something one value. For me this scarf is all of that.
The scarf itself is made in Italy of light weight wool and inspired by a vintage mughal print that was drawn from the Drake’s archive and brought back for the current season. Seems that the orange one has been sold out but there are some still left in yellow and red. In addition to that there is also a version of the scarf that is made of wool and silk mixture. I’m pretty sure this one will get a lot of wear during the upcoming months (and years).
