mii Scarves
A name like a musical note… A mii scarf or stole is a note of happiness, of color, of softness and style that gives a unique accent to your silhouette.

A name with a story all its own:
mii, the acronym for “Made In India”, two “i” ’s for a meeting between two countries, between two textile designers; and above all for the precious meeting between you and mii. A reflection of these two “i”’s is their signature: two fingerprints symbolizing their creative and human commitment as well as their own cultural diversity.

Their collections, mostly contemporary, have been imagined and designed in Paris, then woven, printed, embroidered by hand in their own workshop in Kolkata. They carefully select only the best quality yarns to weave their scarves and stoles. The most beautiful cotton, khadi, silk, linen, wool, and cashmere are used – either solely or mixed – to create soft and inviting fabrics that fall perfectly, comfortably. mii, is a “moi” with two voices, designed especially for you.

The designers:
mii’s universe is created by two visions and four hands. Bapan Dutta is an Indian textile designer, Lucie Bourreau a French textile designer. They met in 2006 at «l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des arts décoratifs de Paris », and have been working together ever since to create beautiful designs using the textile “savoir-faire” for which both of their countries are famous.

Lily and Lionel Scarves
Luxury British brand Lily and Lionel is the home of iconic printed scarves for women and men, each one inspired by something we think is truly beautiful: an old photograph, a painting, a country scene.

A name with a story all its own:
The story of Lily and Lionel starts with a family in London. Lily, a dressmaker extraordinaire and her husband Lionel, who supplied apparel to London’s most glamorous stores, founded the family’s heritage of working in textiles. After graduating from the London College of Fashion, their granddaughter Alice Stone, Creative Director of Lily and Lionel, continued the tradition with a collection of iconic, digitally printed scarves.

The designers:
Each print created by their design team is inspired by the discovery of beauty in every corner of life. For them, it’s all about the big reveal: as you unfold your scarf, the colors will expand into a striking scene. More a keepsake than a simple accessory, these pieces bring the feel-good factor with the softest luxury fabrics.

And so the story ends with you, wrapped up in your scarf wherever and however you like.

CLOSED

Denims and chinos are Closed’s core competences. The idea behind every new design is “form follows function” and this approach resulted in the DNA of the brand – the X-Pockets.
