Description

Darn’s ‘A little Lift’ collection. Developed after a trip to Mexico and formulated during quarantine, this collection features a colour palette pulled from the native flower Bougainvillea and Luis Barragan’s iconic home.

After returning to the UK I took a liking to British snakehead tulips spotted poking out of meadows in the spring, with their perfect check-like pattern which reminded me of jockey uniforms I am so fond of. Keeping me company during quarantine, parrot tulips also make an appearance as a two tone design named Robyn, and were home grown by florist Boldoxlip.

Each scarf is individually named after the first female jockey race players dedicated to their history-changing achievements. ‘A Little Lift’ is my second scarf launch and pays homage to the endless inspiration that can be found in colour, nature and pioneering women.

Robyn is named after Jockey Robyn Smith Astaire who in 1973 become the first female jockey to win a stake race in America. She later married the legendary dancing feet Fred Astaire in 1980.
