Large Rare Vintage Pink Valentino Silk Scarf with Irish Linen Cushion Pillow

About

A large custom-made one-of-a-kind cushion (pillow) created from a stunning rare vintage Valentino silk fashion scarf in an extremely elegant and unusual design. It depicts a picturesque evening scene illustrating four storks gathering in amongst delicate foliage in a quiet, romantic landscape. In soft muted tones of beige, dusky gold and accents of ballet pink with dramatic soft black block shapes describing tall blooming trees above, luscious stencilled leaves below and details on the animals reminiscent of a Japanese style wood back print. The bird’s wings are covered in stylised feathers with intricate pencil like drawn detail in a faint grey (grey). One could interpret the white circle in the sky as an evening time full moon or to an early morning sunrise, alluding to either dawn or dusk, exquisitely framed by our cushion. Subtly placed in the bottom right hand corner is the ‘Valentino’ signature. Italian designer Valentino Clemente Ludovico Garavani, best known as Valentino, is known for his fine haute couture creations. Valentino couture is the ultimate extravagance, one example being the white gown worn by Jackie Kennedy at her wedding to Greek tycoon Aristotle Onassis. Their signature look being pretty bows and intricate lace patterning infused with femininity. A quant and exotic rare find as Valentino scarves today are mainly found in chiffon and featuring their signature lace print. On a quality silk with a sumptuous feel, beautiful powdery texture with a hand rolled hem. Backed in new 100% pure Irish linen, the aristocrat of textiles and certified by the Irish Linen Guild, lined in a layer of natural bamboo wadding, filled with new plush duck feather insert and a concealed zip. The traditional oatmeal color linen is a combination of the unbleached raw colour of the natural flax plant on the weft intertwined with pristine white on the warp, resulting in a beautiful mottled effect. Would work well with a variety of colour schemes due to its neutral tones, a charming addition to one’s interior. A contemporary cushion (pillow) constructed with antique elements by using fragments of precious fabric. Handcrafted in Ireland By designer-maker Katie Larmour Color: Pale pink, baby pink, pastel pink, tan, brown, cream, beige, taupe, grey (gray), soft black, charcoal, antique gold, yellow, ivory and off white.
