NEW A/W 2021 ILONA TAMBOR COLLECTION

Ilona Brings Slavic Mythology into Life on Silk Scarves and Accessories

For this season’s looks, Ilona has drawn inspiration from her Slavic roots, allowing tradition and mythology to come to life in her designs. A testament to her heritage, she brings mesmerizing themes to wearable silk accessories. With darker undertones, each scarf tells an intricate story through a spectacular eye for dazzling design.

Both Slavic mythology, and in particular, demonology, have long enraptured the mind of this designer with her Polish roots. Growing up and listening to tales of the creation of the world, the gods that watch over it, and the people who inhabit it, Ilona envisioned the nature of the world through this lens.

“The stories were sometimes dark, sometimes happy, mysterious, and coarse. Sometimes they were scary, lined with laughter, and often came with a warning or lesson. Above all, they were original,” explains Ilona. It’s this originality that shines through in this season’s designs, featuring Leshy – the forest guardian – and the interplay between the Griffin and Basilisk.

A keen connoisseur of world mythologies may have picked up on Slavic mythology entering the public consciousness of late through the interpreted works of The Witcher, by Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski. Both the games and its Netflix adaptation have propelled some of these stories in front of the contemporary eye. 

But this is only one slice of the rich world seen through a Slavic lens. Ilona Tambor’s silk scarf designs offer the wearer the soul of stories told around a shepherd’s fire as the smoke creates a backdrop for the imagination of the listener. This imagination is harnessed and painted through innovative means.

Every silk scarf begins its life illustrated by hand – an intricately creative process. Before being printed on sustainably sourced silk, these patterns are manipulated digitally, adding colour and spirit into each design. Discover more on the Tambor World page.
