For lifestyle brand Shaku it all begins with nature. Founder and creative director, Shakera Tayub’s love of the natural world urged her to set pen, pencil - and paint - to paper. A skilled artist, her sketch books were soon filled with unique and beautifully detailed artworks of plants and flowers captured in incredible detail.
Easily forgotten on the stacked pages of a notebook, her idea for a collection of luxury scarves – wearable works of art – was born. A celebration of femininity and uncompromising craftsmanship, the collection combines skilled hand-drawn artistry with unrivalled print technology. Made with the finest quality threads and printed with premium dyes the brand was a year in the making before coming to life in the prestigious factories of Como, Italy. With unparalleled attention to detail the line-up boasts a range of designs rendered in silk, wool, silk merino, and georgette, furthermore, each one can be personalized, with initials hand embroidered.
The London-based brand is synonymous with time-honored techniques, tradition and modernity, and is in line with slow fashion. Sophisticated designs have multi-generational appeal and are heirlooms to be passed down, not discarded within a season. Immune to fleeting, passing trends, they are intended to be loved and worn for decades to come. In limited edition runs but with a one-size-fits-all approach, Shaku is envisioned to be worn in multiple styles, folded into a triangle and knotted in the neckline of a cashmere sweater; tied as a bandana or looped around the handles of a classic handbag. The collection puts the needs and personality of the wearer at the fore; making the possibilities endless. “My vision is to enrich the individual style of each wearer by expressing an aspect of their personality,” comments Shakera Tayub.
