An eternal love affair with velvet

An eternal love affair with velvet

Our love affair with velvet continues with the current trend for pink, emerald, yellow and other jewel shades adding to the ever stylish black and navy this season. It’s sumptuous, luxury and comforting properties make it a perfect choice for Autumn/Winter while it’s natural sheen bring the glamour and party feel.

We love the way we can manipulate velvet to construct on trend hats, headbands and turbans, including some of which were worn to the wedding of Princess Eugenie in October. The pink slice worn by Zoe de Givenchy was amongst those picked out for best dressed awards too.

The new Jane Taylor London clutch bag range includes stunning, timeless pieces made in velvet that can be personalised with your initials for that extra bespoke touch. Perfect for the party season and Christmas gifts, they are on my wish list.

Traditionally a challenging fabric to make, velvet was one of the more expensive fabrics and historically favoured by nobility. Production of high-quality velvet remains today an involved process that is reflected in its cost. At Jane Taylor London, we use velvet made from lux silk mix in a number of sumptuous shades but we can bespoke dye to match your outfit too.

There are a number of velvet pieces in our online shop to peruse or do pop in to our London store on the King’s Road , to try on a piece in possibly our favourite fabric to work with.
