BIYAN, a name for ethereal elegance

Browsing through Net-A-Porter’s new season offer I stumbled upon these exquisite garments signed by Indonesian label Biyan. It has a sophisticated-romantic style with elegant, fluid cuts covered in elaborate, stylized botanical silk prints and adorned with lavish embroidery and bead/crystal appliqué.

Mythical scarves from Gris Neutre

I don’t think I have seen lately something lovelier than these gorgeous silk scarves from Portuguese label Gris Neutre. Hermès, move over! Founded in 2010 by an illustrator-designer (Sara Bento de Castro), a fashion designer (Marisa Ferra) and an anthropologist (Joana Gonçalo Oliveira) under the “modest” name of Gris Neutre, this label offers luxury accessories of pure silk printed with elaborated imagery that celebrates nature and humanity.
