You want a stylish packing tip? We’ve got a great one: this must-have accessory is the sort of indispensable, tackle-all-climates, wear-anywhere, outfit-perking, round-the-world wonder you won’t know how you did without. And <blush>, this little Lily and Lionel number has Mr & Mrs Smith written all over it…
We’ve long been fans of Lily and Lionel’s iconic accessories (along with some of the world’s most fashion-savvy travellers) – their beautiful, featherlight printed cashmere and silk scarves hide a secret image that’s only revealed when unfurled. At Mr & Mrs Smith we’re so wrapped up in them (quite literally), we’ve collaborated on our own exclusive collection of picture-perfect wraps to inspire and cosset.
The three super-soft scarves bear gorgeous travel images by our photographer Adrian Houston – based on City, Coast and Country colourways – and are big enough to hang to the knees or drape comfortably twice around your neck (which, as any style maven knows, is de rigueur). Choose from enigmatic Hidden Venice (pictured above), with its chiaroscuro shades of gold, black and red; dive into the cool, cobalt-hued See you in Santorini (below left); or have yourself a Highland Fling (below right) with a cheeky ginger cow (puns intended). Did someone say ‘Christmas’?
Limited-edition silk-modal wraps, £100 each, Lily and Lionel for Mr & Mrs Smith (available exclusively online at mrandmrssmith.com).
