The cherry blossoms are in full bloom here in Vancouver, and now the calendar is finally catching up. With the official start of spring just around the corner, we’re getting ready to shed our winter layers and embrace the warmer temperatures. One layer that you may want to hang on to during this transition period is the scarf. Walnutte is a new line of luxury scarves based in Vancouver and the company collaborates with artists from around the world to design vibrant scarves for women, produced in fine fabrics such as silk and cashmere.
Walnutte launched in 2014 with its limited edition Reflections collection, a series of photographic images by Manhattan-based architect, Justin Huang. The collection is printed on 100% silk in a versatile oversized square, with delicately hand-rolled edges. Only 500 of each design in the collection are produced, and each scarf is accompanied by a serial number and certificate of authenticity.
Walnutte’s colourful Tropical Illusion scarf can be seen in this month’s issue of InStyle magazine (March 2015), featuring Walnutte creative director, Roshena Minnes. Due to the positive response, the company recently released this video to demonstrate how to recreate the look by tying two scarves into a beautiful maxi dress.
Roshena Minnes told me that the brand’s mission is to create joy through beauty and colour. “The name Walnutte represents the idea that there’s more to life than what we see on the surface, just like the strong walnut shell hides a delicate treasure.” Recognizing that fashion is a powerful tool to communicate how we feel on the inside, she set out to make people happy and bring a smile to their face every time they wear a Walnutte scarf.
