Who doesn’t love a scarf? We’re not talking Doctor Who style long, knitted ones, but big, silky, luxurious, throw-them-round-your-neck versions, that are, let’s face it, the perfect accessory.
They just add something to an outfit; they’re beautiful, functional, comforting, cosy, timeless. Oh, and the perfect gift!
Scarves are the speciality of two of the Scottish designers at the Ocean Terminal Limited Edition store – north east based Danielle Rattray and Helen Ruth.
Danielle, 32, launched her eponymous brand just this year, after a successful eight-year-career as a graphic designer. Starting her own fashion business was a dream that had turned into an obsession, and so the Stonehaven based designer made it a reality.
Helen Ruth Scarves is the brand created by Aberdeen-based textile designer Helen Greensmith (Ruth is her middle name). Her beautiful silk and wool scarves are illustrated with vibrant prints of childhood, fairy tales and Scottish wildlife. There is always more than meets the eye with Helen Ruth prints though –take a closer look for those subtle, sinister undertones!
Hibernation, Nature Trail, South, Monarch and Migration – the Autumn 2014 collection inspired by nature’s migratory and hibernation behaviour in the winter – feature beautiful ink drawings, combined with found imagery and photography to create amazing scarves you could spend all day exploring!
