I have started a new series in an uncharacteristic style for me. I tend towards abstraction but shifted to a more representational approach for this particular project. After reading about the global catastrophic decline in avian species last year, I started to sketch and research birds to increase my connection and knowledge. This is the Mangrove Cuckoo, or Coccyzus minor, whose population has been severely reduced along the Florida coast.

A scarf designed to last, the first thing you will pack for a trip and the final thing you will put on before stepping out. A scarf that is soft and smooth and won’t snare your earrings. A scarf to be passed from one generation to the next. My mother Jessica taught me that scarves were the best fashion hacks and inspired the creation of these pieces. I still have four treasured scarves of my mother’s. Her beloved Hermes scarf is framed and hangs in my daughter’s bedroom. This tropical narrow silk scarf can give you an instant shot of color, lifts the face, and adds miles to a simple wardrobe.
For every Core Collection silk scarf sale the studio makes, we will contribute one mangrove to the restoration project on Chira Island. You can read more about mangroves, the restoration project, and our partnership with Conservation International here.
