Influences for ‘The Dorchester’ Scarf by Teatum Jones

Catherine Teatum, says:  “Our design has drawn inspiration from the graphic nature of the metalwork on the balconies, the duality between the bold architecture and the elegant interior, the strength, character and regeneration of the hotel over the decades, juxtaposed with black and white photographs of the staff from the hotel’s early years.  We merged bold graphic lines with softer elements inspired by colours from within the hotel’s most famous suite into a liquid romantic fantasy.”

‘The Dorchester’ scarf designed by Teatum Jones, measures 136cm by 136cm, is made of 100% pure silk double georgette, and is available to purchase exclusively from Liberty on Regent Street, and from priced at £245 from Tuesday 18 September 2012.
