kittens, unicorns and astronauts – oh my! ika-k scarves

Lord knows the lady loves a scarf  – I’ve waxed lyrical about We are the Owls (think Victorian carnival) and Scottish designer Helen Ruth (gorgeous prints and bright colours) but when I came across the work of Japanese designer Aki Kimura, I just died! Ika.k (which means unicorn in Japanese) features bright fantastical scarves designed by Aki, who originally worked as a graphic designer before taking her Japanese produced scarves to Berlin. Her scarves are pretty much flat out art. Gorgeous ethereal illustrations that feel like they have straight up just tumbled out of someones dreamscape. The scarves are busy and just a touch frantic with layers of images built through each design. Cats and astronauts…I don’t see why not! Unicorns, zebras, mythical beasts and doughnuts – each scarf is like looking at the best collage ever. 100% silk and at $125 a pop these guys are mini masterpieces! I am at odds whether I would want to wear mine all the time or have it framed!
You can buy yourself some ika.k over at Stud & Stud. I’ll have one of each please.
