Scotland is home to outstanding design and this February G&V and Local Heroes are proud to present five Scottish designers who have created items perfect for gift giving during the season of love. Each of these special commissions is available for purchase inside the hotel and online.
Love Design at G&V Royal Mile Hotel Edinburgh
Niki Fulton’s Miami Signal Tie is designed to bring energy and movement to the classic seaside stripe with a limited edition Miami inspired colour palette. Printing on 100% Fife linen union gives the tie a contemporary twist – a popular material during the 1940s Swing era. Designed, printed and stitched in Edinburgh.
Karen Mabon’s pure silk pocket square is beautifully illustrated with iconic imagery from old Hollywood. Gentlemen can fold into a jacket pocket to make a dashing sartorial statement while ladies can wear around the neck as a gavroche in the Parisian style.
Emma McDowall’s pastel concrete coin dish and vase reflect the designer’s interest in colour and material play. Each of these elegant, modern pieces is completely unique in surface pattern, palette and textural quality.
Euan McWhirter’s stack of bracelets contrast smooth gemstone beads of Lemon Jade, Pink Coral and Amazonite with crystalline Swarovski shapes cleverly interwoven into regimented rows. A sparkling trio, they have a playful sensibility and can be worn in combination as well as on their own.
These innovative diamond and lemon quartz drop earrings by Moira Warren of Patience Jewellery are designed to convert from stud to elegant drop. In 18ct yellow gold with 0.18cts of diamonds and 40.75cts of beautiful lemon quartz, these wonderfully special earrings are also available in a matching cocktail ring and pendant.
