Sophie Crawshay has produced a stunning line of exclusive menswear Pocket Squares and Scarves; twenty-two year old, locally born, Sophie studied Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design at Leeds College of Art. In 2012 Sophie exhibited at New Designers, London.
This is Sophie’s debut collection and the range is called ‘Anything goes’. It has taken her seven months from idea to creation to finally seeing her wonderfully unique Pocket Squares and Scarves retailing. They are digitally printed and 100% silk. Sophie said that she got the inspiration from “Travels, nature, museums and of course Eureka moments!”
We wanted to know what is next for this rising star of the fashion design world; “I’d like to keep building my SC (Sophie Crawshay) brand; I’m currently working on a new line for ladies. I’m just trying to embrace the present whilst looking forward to the future development of my company, my ultimate goal is to have my own shop one day.”
The pocket square has been rising in popularity over the last year with many top design houses adding them to their autumn/winter collections. GQ have recently claimed that “The pocket square is the single most indispensable tool for defining a man of style these days.” A simple pocket square gives men a chance to add a bit of personality and flair to their outfit. It should simply complement a shirt and tie, not match them and although their are endless ways to fold a pocket scarf men should remember that it is the finishing touch, not the focal point of the outfit. You don’t want you’re breast pocket bulging so take care to fold it well but keep it simple.
Psst, if you pop into White Collar the team there will teach you how to fold your SC Pocket Scarves like a pro.
