Two years ago, in December 2018, during a conversation over a cup of tea in Lisa’s kitchen, we had a lightbulb moment … to create a luxury silk scarf brand. Just Add Style! ⠀
Our idea was to design and produce beautifully captivating scarf prints adorned with Em’s fashion illustrations and digitally conjured into a stylish textile world by Lisa.
A lot of hard work followed!
We’re proud of Just Add Style’s capsule silk collection and the evolution of our dream into an increasingly sought after luxury fashion label. Happily we now we find ourselves sharing our latest designs… luxe silk menswear! After a decade of illustrating countless beautiful women for a predominantly female audience, Em is making her first foray into fashion for the boys with illustrated silk pocket squares.
The first pocket square print in Just Add Style menswear is an adaptation of our much loved ‘Fashion Hounds’ large silk square, a key piece in our womenswear range. We’ve reimagined the 90x90cm scarf into a 38x38cm pocket square with a solid black border and finished with traditionally hand rolled edges.
Not wanting to leave out our favourite feline, our second pocket square print, ‘Leopard Lust’, is a big cat design inspired by the popularity of our ‘Leopard Love’ skinny silk scarf.
Browse the first two pocket squares in Just Add Style’s menswear silk collection in our online shop. Each pocket square is presented in a premium black envelope tied with a white string and washer. Alternatively, you can purchase both silk pocket square designs together in a black gift box, tied with a grosgrain ribbon.
We will donate £5 from every pocket square sold in our online shop to Suited & Booted, a UK charity which helps empower men to succeed in the world of employment, assisting vulnerable, unemployed and low-income men into employment by providing interview clothing alongside advice. Clients may be struggling and in need of support, both financial and practical. They may not have the means to wear suitable clothes to ‘look the part’ and therefore unable to give themselves the best possible chance at a job interview. Suited & Booted give their clients suitable clothing – perhaps a formal suit or a smart casual style – and then guide them through the process of a job interview. This gives them better prospects of success and contributes to their general self-confidence and self-esteem.
As we begin 2021 in the studio, we’re illustrating and designing brand new pocket squares to add to the collection and launch later in the year.
