‘Fashion Hounds’ was one of the first illustrated prints we designed while dreaming up Just Add Style. Em spent countless days at her drawing board in the studio capturing the fashion industry’s chicest canine, synonymous with London. Lisa curated the original illustrations digitally and conjured an instantly recognisable design showcasing 101 spotty dogs. We adorned the finest silk twill with the print, creating a hand finished traditional square scarf, a contemporary skinny scarf and a pocket square. The luxury silk trio are a fashionable homage to a certain film and it’s iconic style-obsessed femme fatale.
Little did we know that ‘Fashion Hounds’ would be perfectly well timed for the cinematic release of ‘Cruella’ in May 2021, staring Hollywood royalty Emma Stone.
Set in 1970s London, the live action feature film follows the young Estella, a girl gifted with talent, innovation and ambition in equal measure. When she meets Baroness Von Hallman (Emma Thompson) their relationship sets in motion a course of events and revelations that cause Estella to embrace her wicked side and become revenge-bent Cruella De Vil.
The infamous fictional fashionista’s infatuation with fur and obsession for Dalmatians – famed for their delightfully eye catching spots – drives her to murderous insanity.
The Devil Wears Dalmatian …
*it’s not all bad… we donate £5 from every purchase of a square or skinny ‘Fashion Hounds’ silk scarf in our online shop to Smart Works and £5 from each pocket square online shop sale is given to Suited & Booted Centre. We’re proud to support these UK charities which help to provide quality interview clothes, mentoring and interview training to unemployed women and men. We believe everyone should be empowered to succeed in the workplace.
