Not many people have it – my DIL certainly has; the ability to choose exactly the right present for the right person at the right time. It is no secret that I am an Helenophile but she can’t possibly have known that I was having an intense orange phase.
I treasure the many gifts she has given me over the years but this one – a most unexpected surprise during their visit here - rivals the old favourites.
The scarf is designed by Julia Abadie and is based on Cretan ceramic art from the Minoan period. It marries fine lines with solid colours.
The design seduces with its expressive simplicity and its consummate decorative art. Beauty transcends time, always.
