Almost exactly a year ago I blogged about Scion’s debut collection and now twelve months later Scion are set to release their glorious new range, Wabi Sabi, in March. The collection’s name originates from a Japanese philosophy, which embraces two concepts: ‘Wabi’ – humble and simple, and ‘Sabi’ – aged and weathered. Within the range you will find 13 fabrics and 10 non-woven wallpaper designs that have been inspired by traditional methods such as block-printing, shibori and ikat. The patterns that grace each piece are a mix of geometric, floral and abstract designs realised in a variety of styles from painterly brush strokes and soft ombre shades to striking chevrons and stripes. Meanwhile, the colour palette is equally as inspired: indigo, midnight and inky blues all appear alongside raspberry, amethyst and clover tones. Basically, this collection gets a double thumbs up from Mr. Bazaar! What’s catching your eye, folks?
