The very lovely and energetic Shira is a blogging buddy of mine over at In Pursuit of More. I’ve never met Shira. She lives in Vancouver, I live in Sydney. Shira has just cleaned out her wardrobe. Good for her. I mean that. I always have the best of intentions when it comes to purging my closet/pantry/drawers (or whatever else requires a clean out), but then I get side-tracked. Mainly because I would rather do almost anything than that. Even iron.

Anyhoo, the lovely Shira and I have a mutual passion for scarves. (I feel I should mention here that Shira did not purge herself of any of her scarves – so, it seems she’s not that virtuous!) We got into a short discussion about this yesterday and I thought it was time for another post about my scarf du jour

Let me introduce you to the wonderful, covetable* scarves of Lily and Lionel.

I just can’t decide whether I prefer the ‘Cityscape’ range…

All the scarves shown are 50% cotton, 50% bamboo and 90 x 200cm.

The fabulous accessories boutique Lily and Lionel was founded by London College of Fashion graduate Alice Stone. According to her bio, “an on-going family heritage within the textile industry, combined with her love of fashion, has allowed Alice to create a gorgeous selection of scarves and leather accessories.” Alice’s grandparents – the original Lily and Lionel, established the family roots within fashion during their early years. Lily was a dressmaker who had a strong talent for design, creating and making all of her own clothes, whilst Lionel supplied apparel to some of London’s most glamorous boutiques and stores.

Oh, a couple of questions… Do you have a favourite? And, are there enough fellow scarf lovers out there for a regular fortnightly or monthly scarf-centric post?

Lily and Lionel sell online through here and at one of my favourite stores ever, Liberty in London.

*I think I’m leaning towards ‘New York Cityscape’. Are you reading, LM?
