Once upon a time….urban workhorses in Scotland inspired sculptor Andy Scott to tap into the Kelpie’s story of transformation, which in turn …inspired artist and designer Iona Crawford’s silk sequences for her exquisite, bespoke and ready to order womenswear, and diffusion scarves, pillows, and T-shirts…which inspired a connection with Hannah Read’s music…leading to the performance in Bryant Park and the exclusive Capsule Collection on Slow Luxury.
Launching Tuesday, April 8, 2014, a selection of exclusive items from the Collection were available for a limited time on the new Slow Luxury online pop up shop, with the main Collection available from the Iona Crawford online store.
Go to ‘Happening Now’ to read exclusive interviews, images, films, poetry, the T-shirt…and the silk pocket squares and other steely, silky surprises!
