CASHMERE SCARVES HORTUS BY NIGHT 1 COLLECTION

hortus by night collage of the scarves

The extra large cashmere scarves of the Hortus by Night 1 Collection are your best friend this season. Wear them around your neck, as a cape, a turban, headwrap or with your favourite autumn coat.

Cashmere is woolen royalty. It is one of the most comfortable fabrics to wear directly on your skin. Cashmere is soft, supple and voluminous. On top of that it adjusts to the climate. When it’s cold cashmere will keep you warm. If you’re caught up in an unexpected warm autumn day cashmere will feel comfortably light.

You can order your cashmere scarf in the shop.

Additional information and how to take care of your scarf:

  • The Hortus by Night scarves are 120x120cm, made of 90% modal and 10% cashmere wool. This combination of fabrics makes them super soft and supple.
  • The scarves are a perfect colourful addition to your autumn wardrobe.
  • Dry clean only. This will make sure your scarf will last a lifetime.
  • Warm iron.
  • The Fran Zone loves ethical, slow fashion. Your scarf is sustainably printed on demand with GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) ink.

GIANT BAMBOO DESIGN – HORTUS BY NIGHT 1

From painting to pattern

The Giant Bamboo design is a mirrored version of the Giant Bamboo painting. The blues in this design go from turquoise to aqua and from night blue to teal. It creates a kaleidoscopic effect which takes you from the forest to the marches and back. Or waves that take you from the ocean to the sky and back.

I was going to write something like ‘if blue is your favourite colour this is your go-to design’ and obviously it is to a bunch of people. Because this is one of your ultimate favourites of the season. You can wear the Giant Bamboo scarf with cobalt, emerald and petrol, it all works!

Matching glass jewel by Studio Glashelder

The matching ring designed by Studio Glashelder has the perfect combo of black and blue. I particularly like its round-ish shape in contrast with the straight bamboo branches. Feels like a crescent bamboo moon.

ARUM LILY DESIGN – HORTUS BY NIGHT 1

From painting to pattern

The Arum Lily design has the most autumn forest feel of all the five Hortus by Night designs with all its yellows, oranges and browns. It’s like taking a stroll through the fallen leaves the one even brighter than the other. So autumn party vibes on!

Arum Lily cashmere scarf

The Arum Lily scarf looks lit with other autumn colours like olive green, ochre and all shades of brown and orange. It’s outside adventure at its most colourful. And it’s still available in my shop.

From painting to pattern

The Silver Fir design combines all the autumn colours you can think of with the shadows of a silver fir. The pattern is the mirrored version of the Silver Fir painting and the kaleidoscopic effect is quite epic (if I do so say myself 🙂 )

Silver Fir cashmere scarf

The scarf looks lit with purple, lime and coral. It’s sparkling energy at its best! And if you’re into wearing black or navy it’s a total winner to add to your outfit. Just put on some shiny lipstick and you’re good to go!

DATE PALM DESIGN – HORTUS BY NIGHT 1

From painting to pattern

date palm painting the fran zone 2019
dadelpalm dessin the fran zone herfstcollectie 2019 hortus by night

The Date Palm design feels to me like a transition design between my summer Majorelle Collection and my autumn Hortus by Night collection. It captures an Indian summer feel with saturated colours like pink, green and blue. The shapes in the pattern remind me of my time in Africa, which was my main inspiration for the Majorelle Collection.

So in many ways this design transfers my love of exotic summer vibes to my love of autumn colours and feels. The different shades seen in this picture gradually develop themselves in the other designs of the Hortus by Night collection, to become more autumn-y. Bright Date Palm blue becomes a grey blue in the Giant Bamboo design. The soft green becomes a moss green in the Silver Fir design and the vibrant pink becomes an autumn leaf magenta-red colour in the Arum Lily design.

Date Palm cashmere scarf

The Date Palm cashmere scarf is the perfect scarf for anyone who loves to pair blue with shades of green. Because it adds that little something special by those touches of pink and purple. As you can see it’s a real show stopper worn as head wrap. But of course it also shines around your shoulders! I love to wear bright shades of pink lipstick with this scarf and defy the autumn chills just a little longer. Still available in my shop!

Matching glass jewel by Studio Glashelder

The glass jewel Studio Glashelder designed to go with the Date Palm scarf is by far my favourite of the season. It features a large emerald green glass jewel with inside of it a darker greenish black stripe of glass. On top there’s a small streak of soft lilac to add some colour. It’s the perfect balance between rough beauty and sophisticated elegance. And it’s still available!

ROCKCAP FERN DESIGN – HORTUS BY NIGHT 1

From painting to pattern

rockcap fern painting the fran zone 2019
eikvaren dessin the fran zone herfstcollectie 2019 hortus by night

The Rockcap Fern design for me feels like the Hortus by Night design with the most enthralling contradiction between the shapes and the colours. While the shapes are alien-like tentacles which crawl over the fabric, reminiscent of an apocalyptic extraterrestrial race. The colours are soft, gentile pastels ranging from sweet lilac to soft pink. Maybe those aliens aren’t as maleficent as expected!

Rockcap Fern cashmere scarf

The Rockcap Fern is soft, warm, luxurious and it’s the perfect accessory to colour up any outfit. You can were it around your neck, but just as easy wrap it around your shoulders or wear it as a head wrap. Still available in my shop!

Rockcap Fern satin cushion

The Rockcap Fern cushion shines on every couch. But I have to say I particularly like it on dark grey sofas. I haven’t seen it on black yet, though, that may cause me to change my mind. What do you think?

Botanical gardens are my number one source of inspiration. And that’s why I have come up with a sponsorship of de Hortus in Amsterdam. When you buy a scarf or cushion from the new Hortus by Night Collection you will support the building of the new Three Climate Glasshouse in de Hortus.

The Fran Zone will donate €20,- for every sold scarf and €10,- for every sold cushion. This sponsorship is endorsed by de Hortus itself and gives you the opportunity to support de Hortus and their terrific work while at the same time treat yourself with a botanical inspired scarf or cushion.
