Ok, so it may be too short notice and it may be too expensive to arrange a Hong Kong city break for this Valentines Day, but how about this fantastic scarf instead?
This is my pick from the Lily and Lionel Spring / Summer 2013 range. It was hard to choose (it was a close run thing with the paler pink Monaco scene) but I am so glad I chose this one. Hong Kong harbour reflects and shimmers across this large scarf, and the bright colours are vibrant, evocative and romantic. Perfect with a LBD, or with white jeans, or with anything you fancy.
Lily and Lionel is a dynamic British brand, established by Alice Stone, a graduate from the London College of Fashion. The focus is on these beautiful scarves, which are now well loved in Britain and abroad. Amongst their fans are Elle Macpherson, AlekWek and Edie Campbell.
My chosen scarf is Suki Violet. It is a large scarf (90 x 200cm), soft to the touch (50% cotton, 50% bamboo) and oh so glamorous.
It is available online (£120) or in good fashion outlets, such as Ede and Ravenscroft (93 Chancery Lane, London WC2A 1DU).
