Scarf Silk Crepe Enchantillons 110 x 110cm
Carreaux - the fourth MARGOT DESIGN collection, is inspired by the tiles found in and on some of Sydney’s historic pubs and cafe walls. The visual richness of the decors of architecture, past and present, is the inspiration for the designs of this collection. The collection has a soft colour palette of dusty pinks, vibrant corals and the vivid bright greens.
The designs are printed onto a beautiful silk crepe de Chine, with its soft lustrous handle, slightly crinkled texture and easy gentle drape. This collection is printed in a new versatile size which can be worn both sides.
· La Rose design is taken from its namesake of The Rose of Australia in Erskineville, where the interior tiles date from the late1800’s.
· For the Liles design the colours were inspired by the vibrant greens of the tiles lining the Terminus Hotel in historic Pyrmont.
· Échantillons, or French for ‘samples,’ is a collection based on floor tiles in the scattered across entrances of the early 1900 apartment buildings in Darlinghurst.
· Wandering around Mosman, Margot was inspired by the delicate patterns on the tiles on the row of early Victorian street shops - naming this design, Les Vagues or ‘Waves’ in French.
