Narnia collection

Silk scarves lookbook by Charlotte Allen

For the Narnia silk scarves collection, Klements has indulged into studies of light; the grayed hues of light in the depths of winter - the first moments after sunrise, or last of an evening. Light, as it is refracted through glass and prisms and how it appears whilst viewed from under water. Also artificial light; how it hinders and boldly hits objects – beautifully stark and obtuse.

Imagery for the prints came from a variety of sources - adventures, travels and imagination; door knockers from the 16th -19th Centuries, ancient decaying Persian rugs, frozen rainbows of the Antarctic, Polar bears and Hound Dogs, the skins of the hunted and a Stilted hyper real world where peaceful taxidermied creatures share drinks with immortal stone statues, a place where staircases continue endlessly… never getting to anywhere. 
NARNIA SILK SCARF - Klements by Charlotte Allen

The mood and light of the collection was inspired by 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner' by the Gothic poet Samuel Coleridge

"Beyond the shadow of the ship,
I watched the water-snakes:
They moved in tracks of shining white,
And when they reared, the elfish light
Fell off in hoary flakes.

Within the shadow of the ship
I watched their rich attire:
Blue, glossy green, and velvet black,
They coiled and swam; and every track
Was a flash of golden fire."

― Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner
