What do you do with your holiday snaps? Print them out? Make a neat photo album book? Or are you satisfied with just having them up on Facebook?... Perhaps this post shall inspire you to do something different!
Lillie Toogood of GOOD&CO has launched her first range of scarves called The Floater. Each scarf is based on a photograph she had taken on her travels and experiences of different cultures. The photographs are digitally printed on 100% silk, where bold splashes of colour and striking textures catch your eye in the drapery of each scarf. From afar, you probably wouldn't of noticed the images on the scarves but instead identify them as abstract colours and textures. It is here, each Floater scarf undergoes the task of bringing both the wearer and viewer closer to the piece and asking them to imagine the time, place and atmosphere in which the original photo was taken. Questions begin to surface like, what was the weather? Where was the photographer standing? What country or city was this photo taken? ....What else did the photographer see and why was this particular moment captured and not others? For all you photography lovers out there, these scarves are no doubt refreshing and presents a new and innovative medium to communicate visual forms. My favourite out of the collection would have to be Paris By Night, but I also like Brick Lane too. They're all amazing!
Whilst creating this post, I couldn't help but to imagine what one of my favourite photos I took during my trip to Phi Phi would look like. Here is a rough mock-up of it below. Isn't the aqua blue water serene or what! I'll definitely wear that!
