DIY Faux fur scarf
Our Favorite Faux Fur Scarf Designer Is Now Making Coats
Charlotte Simone launched colorful faux fur scarves and arguably started a street style revolution. The pretty Brit is keeping the momentum with a new line of bold faux-fur bombers—hitting just in time for one of the chilliest fashion month to date. See the looks on Queen drummer Roger Taylor's model daughter, Tigerlily Taylor, and hear why jackets now and who she wants to see in them…
Why was now a good time to launch outerwear?
I was looking to expand the collection, add some 'newness' and outwear just felt like the organic next step. The fluffy bombers are available in a variety of candy-colored shades—five different styles all together! The collection is small but its meant to be, we are gently welcoming outerwear to the world of Charlotte Simone.
Were you surprised by the quick popularity of the scarf collection?
I was! I'm an accessories girl at heart so I was set on making the scarf a statement fashion accessory. Bold shades and fluffy textures have become signature to the brand. Charlotte Simone focuses on offering a luxury accessory that women of all ages can invest in.
Why is faux fur your fabrication of choice?
There are so many amazing textures of faux fur that are available in today's market. Faux fur is no longer poor quality and taboo to the fashion elite. Faux fur is just as soft, glossy and warm as the real thing!
What was inspiration for the jacket collection?
I wanted the jackets to be in keeping with the brand identity. A pastel palette felt entirely on brand. The Big Bird Bomber is my personal fave.
Who are some women who inspire you?
Lena Dunham, for her beauty and brains. Olivia Palermo has also been a keen supporter of the brand and I would love to see her in a CS bomber.
As a UK designer, is London a place that inspires you? How does this collection fit into this?
Yes, I'm constantly inspired by the street style here in London. The ladies have such a unique and colorful way of dressing, it's hard to not be inspired. I'm hoping to spot lots of CS bombers during fashion week. It's the best feeling when I do! You'll often find me lurking in shadows with my camera trying to get a snap.
Why did you choose a rock star progeny as the model for the look book?
Because Tiger is gorgeous, British and ever so effortless.
What's next for the brand? Would you ever expand into more ready-to-wear options?
Charlotte Simone will always remain an accessories brand at its core but I'm excited and ready to explore new materials, shapes and products. We're currently working on a bag which would be a new addition to the line. It's all very exciting.
