WORDS: Ciara O’Connor

Luciela Taschen Showroom originally showcased her own line of Czech-made leather handbags, located in the heart of Prague 7. Times have however changed and now the showroom, which also doubles as a store, expanded and stocks British company Silken Favours.

Silken Favours, as the name might suggest, is a line of real silk scarves and cushions designed by Vicki Murdoch. Murdoch, who is stocked by the likes of Liberty of London, takes inspiration from the natural world, and using a traditional pen and ink style, sketches out designs and moulds them into something more contemporary.

Scarves are available in three measurements and are not your typical paisley print, fuddy- duddy numbers- think flying pigs, pineapples, western cacti – just to name a few. In fact, Queen Elizabeth even has her very own ‘Thank you M’am’ scarf which, as you guessed, is one covered in corgis.

In addition to the scarves, Silken Favours, also makes cushions and pillows for home. Her designs range from the more traditional to the downright absurd; do you need an opened pomegranate, maybe a silk cactus or even a strawberry?
