Rose & Rose Meet Matisse

I make no secret of the fact that I love Rose & Rose scarves almost as much as love wandering around art galleries  - and with a new collection designed exclusively for the Tate my two loves have been combined.

Today sees the opening of Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs - an exhibition which runs at the Tate Modern until 7th September 2014 - and inspired by Henri Matisse's bold use of block colour, Rose & Rose have designed a collection of dip dyed scarves to be sold as official merchandise. Made from a blend of wool and silk they make for a very chic souvenir - a nice change from a bookmark or fridge magnet don't you think?

The scarves are available in green, orange and purple colourways but my favourite has to be the vivid cobalt blue scarf - reminiscent of Matisse's Blue Nude. Priced at just £35 it's a fraction of the cost of Rose & Rose's similar St. Tropez cashmere design which retails for £189.

Psst... Rose & Rose have lots more for us to look forward to next season. The Out of Africa themed A/W'14press show featured a whole host of tribal/animal print scarves and wraps - as well as handbags.
