Laura Slater is a textile and surface pattern designer, who graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2007. Developed and created in her West Yorkshire based studio, her bold hand-printed designs are informed by the interaction between colour and shape.
Made from lightweight sheer silk, this scarf has a colourful block print pattern with a delicate rolled hem. The design has been created exclusively for Tate by Rachel Whiteread to celebrate her 2017 exhibition at Tate Britain. Although Whiteread is renowned for her evocative large- scale sculptures and castings, drawing has always remained one of her core activities.
Delicate and sophisticated silk scarf with an orange trim that has a design from John Singer Sargent’s 1885 painting 'Carnation Lily, Lily Rose'. Sargent wanted to capture the exact level of light at dusk in this painting, so he painted the picture out of doors in the Impressionist manner which explains the subtle and tantalising use of colour. This scarf has been created to accompany the collection at Tate Britain and is exclusive to the Tate. 100% silk. Dry clean only. Made in the UK.
The design for this scarf – called Gourmet - was created in 1947 by Patrick Heron, and was produced by Cresta Silks. Originally produced in blue and white, it was specially selected by Heron to be recoloured to accompany the major exhibition of his work at Tate Britain 1998. Tate has collaborated with British manufacturer Beckford Silks to re issue this stunning accessory.
