Coco Chanel once said, “Hard times arouse an instinctive desire for authenticity”, and the three sisters of Eager & Vane couldn’t agree more: “In these times, it’s hard to find fashion that isn’t throwaway and this doesn’t benefit your wardrobe, your wallet or our planet. Instead, our emphasis is on creating luxurious life-long pieces of wearable art.”
Eager & Vane create wonderfully surreal and vibrant silk scarves inspired by the idea of art as fashion - where anything goes, style is timeless and seasons are irrelevant.
Created by visual artists, this label draws as much inspiration from Jean Miro and 14th century Japanese woodblock prints as it does from the catwalk. “Each of our scarves comes with its own visual story and we acknowledge the artists that inspired the design.”
The launch collection of E&V scarves are hand-numbered and printed in limited editions of 50. Each comes with a Certificate of Authenticity so you can be assured that you are buying a very unique and special piece. “Our scarves are lovingly printed on the highest quality silks, and finished with hand-rolled hems. They are beautifully boxed and – the best bit … we deliver free, anywhere in the world.”
From our ‘Classic’ shape to our uniquely-named oversized ‘Zenith’, each scarf is designed to create different looks depending on how you fold them, drape them or wear them. “Isadora Duncan would have loved them!”
