The Ultimate Shawl
There is nothing better than cuddling up with your Valentine!
French chic brings creative texture and warmth into your world this Valentine’s Day with the inspired Accessories Collection from Mille Couleurs London. Mille Couleurs London founders and designers launch the ultimate shawl, befitting of any luxury gift list and in perfect time for Valentine’s Day.
Firmly in the grip of a British winter, the 2013 must-have accessory to grace your wardrobe has to be Mille Couleurs most inspired piece to date; the Cosy Tippet Shawl from La Doré Collection - a statement piece that has been aptly described as ‘The ultimate security blanket for grown-ups’. This elegant silk & black velvet shawl is edged with faux fur and hand finished with an antique gold cocoon pattern to add sparkle and elegance. Practicality has to be the key for wintry evenings but style should not be lost as a result. This clever design keeps the wearer snug and cosy without adding bulk. Wrap up against the chill with the perfect addition to every outfit for any occasion. If you prefer to stay warm indoors with a glass of good wine, this accessory has a hidden side. The shawl quite brilliantly doubles as a lavish throw for your favourite chair or adds an extra layer of sumptuousness to your bed. Give this stunning piece the ultimate compliment by choosing made to order matching Le Doré Scatter Cushions in opulent black velvet and gold detail for adding depth and texture to a room.
