The Duro Olowu Scarf

A couple of weeks ago we were invited to the Gilbert and George exhibition at The White Cube gallery, before we went, we popped in on our old neighbour Duro Olowu.


We instantly fell in love with this geometric cashmere scarf in golden yellow from his A/W 2010 collection which was featured in vogue. With a little styling from Duro and a little deliberation over colour I knew I had to have it.



The three colours sit nicely next to an immaculate Hermès handbag that you would just die for.
