In the darkness of winter, Avant Toi delivers a spark of light across silk.
Their creative director, Mirko Ghignone, is described as a “paramour of the force of color.”
Within each collection, he champions the magnetic nature of hue – using every shade of the rainbow to set the mood for modern style.
The colors and patterns are often influenced by the international travels of the Avant Toi team, with the vibrant landscape of Madeira, Portugal, shining through in their latest collection.
This love affair with color is most obvious within Avant Toi’s signature scarves, wherein printed silk is felted to a heavier cashmere backing.
Central to this process is Avant Toi’s use of air-brushing – the dye is applied to the textiles by hand to create the unique qualities, combinations and characteristics in their finishes.
Through an infinite combination of shades, Avant Toi defines the soul and story of the piece.
The bordered effect of the cashmere and silk is like a painting in a frame – tonal, artistic and undeniably exquisite.
Presented in a range of hues from deep purple to vibrant blue, each feels as if it is a memento of the natural world – a gallery of lush landscapes waiting to be explored.
