In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the Variety Club, Liberty of London have created this commemorative silk scarf. The scarf features the Variety Club logo, with a Liberty Tana print make-over. Designed by Liberty of London’s designer-in-chief, Tamara Salman, it’s a classic re-working of the timeless charity logo.
The Variety Club is a UK charity that supports sick, disabled and disadvantaged children and young people. In the last 60 years, they have raised over £200 million and improved the lives of more than a million children and young people. And to help that little bit more, £25 from the sale of each scarf will go directly to the Variety Club.
I’ve been playing with the idea of buying a pocket hanky, folding it in the style of a Victorian gentleman’s chest pocket accessory, and placing it in the back pocket of my jeans. Kinda like an old school British spin on the New York gangster look. I think it’s got a future in the UK streetwear scene.
Even if you’re not backing that little gem of an idea, you gotta admit that the silk hanky is a classic British fashion accessory that deserves respect. It’s been on the scene since day! Especially this one; not only is it a pretty rad design, it’s for a very good cause.
You can get your hands on this symbolic piece of silk in-store at Liberty’s or from their online store for £65.
