Introducing our Venomous Silk Scarves

This week has seen the launch of our new collection of silk scarves on the Harper & Blake website. Titled Venomous, this collection looks at some of the most poisonous creatures of both the physical and mythical world. Our talented designer has produced a collection of eight beautiful scarves: four artworks for the Harper minimalist, and four for the Blake maximalist.

Each of the four stories of the minimalist relates to that of the maximalist and vice versa. We have made snakes key in this collection, with them featuring in three of the four stories. Animal print is a particular style favourite of ours, so we have carefully selected suitable colour pallets for classic and bold looks and created an abstract take on the timeless snakeskin scale print. In addition, we have looked at the deadly reptiles in more detail and created a more direct depiction of them in our second story. The long, flexible creatures were perfect to create stylish, elegant patterns from and worked perfectly when paired with the gorgeous yet harmful plants of the wild. The depiction of mythical Gorgon Medusa: a jealous female in a monster form with venomous snakes for hair, features in one of the collection’s scarves. The creative description of the sculpture-like bust is supported by a background consisting of snake shadows, making the mythic design even more endearing. In contrast, mushrooms have been the prime article of inspiration for the pairing Blake print. White follicles outlined in yellow and on a red background provide the ideal colour pallet for the bold maximalist that wishes to dress up a plain outfit. Finally, our last story looks in more detail at delicate yet deadly plantlife. The stripes flower silk scarves combine the timeless but on-trend stripe pattern with a floral foreground. Slightly more subtle for the classic minimalist: the Harper design features a pastel colour pallet. Both designs depict the vegetation in an almost scientific dictionary-esque style.

The Venomous collection of luxury and stylish Silk Scarves are all made to order in our London Studio from silk modal. We have worked hard to source the best manufacturers to produce our large (136cm square) neckties. The complex and sophisticated designs are printed with the best quality finish and carefully machine hem finished.

Each with their own specific story, these irresistible designs are a perfect chic staple for your accessory wardrobe to be used any time of the year. Their large style ensures that they can be styled in multiple ways depending on the wearer and occasion. Roll and secure in place with a brooch for a more elegant look, or simply fold in half and wrap around the neck for a more casual-everyday style.

After also creating creative banners for our platforms to promote the launch and beautiful artwork of the Venomous silk scarf collection we are excited to see what you, the public think of the classic, creative collection.

Design with Harper & Blake: Neon Granite Black

*New product alert*. Due to the popularity of our pink Neon Granite case we bring you the Neon Granite phone case in Black. Although this case is part of Harper’s collection, we believe the design contrasts the simple and the bold. The black granite base and mustard, green and brown tones are minimalistic, while the abstract irregularity of the flecks and the eye-catching red, white and yellow make it quirky and unique. We love this design which embodies both the styles the band represents, demonstrating that they both contrast and compliment each other.

Design with Harper & Blake: MacBook cases

Geometric -Grey for facebook and blogThis week at Harper & Blake we’ve taken our love of eye catching prints and channeled it into our latest product – Macbook Cases!

Inspired by the diversity embodied by Harper and Blake’s personality, these first two cases we’re introducing are all about contrast.

With clean lines and a softened colour palette, the minimal aesthetic of the light pink geometric case is suited to the more elegant taste of Harper. With the intersecting shapes in muted Nude and Lavender tones gently contrasting misty Blues and Greys, this angular case conveys perfect balance, perfect to compliment the subtle and considered taste of a Harper.

The Abstract Feather case’s bold design is sure to appeal to our more eclectic Blake. with an abstract parrot feather print in crisp Green, ice Blues and cool Purples set off against tropical Oranges ,striking Yellows and candy Pinks, this case has an almost overwhelmingly energetic aesthetic perfectly suited to any Blake’s unique and punchy sense of style.
