'A ball gown is your dream, and it must make you a dream... I think it is just as necessary in a woman's wardrobe as a suit. And it is wonderful for morale...' Christian Dior

Mad Hatters

Topshop Unique aren't the only ones who predict we'll be walking around in head gear inspired by the wildest of the animals in the wood come autumn.

Not excited by the antlers, or the sheepskin that's prevailed over London Fashion Week? Allow me to introduce Miss Kiki Salon Presents... a fashion collective who've just launched a range of silk scarves inspired by up and coming artists and designers. The print above is the work of Yiannis Katsaris and Ghoulia Peculiar and here's how it could look:

Fifty silk panels have been created for the project, which is an echo as well as a fitting ode to the work of Zika Ascher in post-war London. He and his wife Lida persuaded artists like Matisse and Henry Moore to lend their designs to silk panels and these were taken up by couture houses like Dior and YSL. I've just interviewed Miss Kiki about the scarves for Queens of Vintage, so more pictures and link to follow.
