New Collection: Charlotte Linton

Charlotte Linton Designer Scarves on The Patternbase

Charlotte Linton has released her new Autumn/Winter 2012 line: GREENLAND! This season, Charlotte’s fictional muse Ermantrude follows in Kent’s footsteps arriving in Nuuk Greenland to undertake a cross-country expedition. Under the glow of the Northern lights, Ermantrude learns of Greenlandic mythology, the traditional crafts of the Inuit and their ingenuity with fur, and listens to the song of the Bowhead Whale.

The travel diaries of early 20th century artist Rockwell Kent provide a starting point for designer Charlotte Linton’s Greenland Collection. Taking inspiration from the paintings and drawings Kent created whilst living amongst Inuit communities, Charlotte blends her usual mix of landscape, wildlife and culture with Kent’s exuberant color palette in her eclectic printed scarf collection. Featuring four scarves in wool and three in silk the collection is printed in Scotland and finished by hand in England.
