bird and knoll is the meeting of a fashion mind and a creative eye. since 2013, this design duo have been creating their signature luxurious oversized cashmere-blend scarves. described as wearable art, each scarf is printed with a photograph of an iconic destination - a beautiful vignette (photographed by the two creatives on their global travels) that tells a narrative of each location. "we have a strong emotional connection with these places and i think that really comes through in our artistic interpretations" says knoll.
with natalie's talent behind the camera and macayla's business background in some of new zealand's most successful fashion businesses, this trans-tasman collaboration, work between their sydney and auckland showrooms, focussing on combining tactile, quality textiles and finishes with distinct photographic images to create a beautiful brand of luxe accessories. "we have set out to create an accessories collection that the discerning woman would use as the final edit of her outfit - like a great handbag, a beautiful pair of shoes … an eye-catching scarf" says chapman "these are pieces that simplify her life with their versatility, quality and creative impact."
in 2015, bird and knoll collaborated with qantas and their trend consultant, supermodel jessica hart to produce the first scarf in the "feels like home" collection - melbourne, featuring the city's colourful streetscape of graffiti art. more collaborations with qantas and other international brands are in the works for 2016.
with an ever-growing global presence, bird and knoll are now in more than 50 stores across australia, new zealand, usa, canada and the uk and have a growing following.
