NEW S/S 2021 ILONA TAMBOR COLLECTION

In this time of change and uncertainty, the release of my brand new Spring/Summer 2021 Collection of silk scarves and silk cushions has a dual purpose. At Ilona Tambor, I believe that art and fashion serve to motivate and elicit emotion and inspiration in both the wearer and the viewer. Since I believe that art serves a purpose, it’s my responsibility as an artist and designer to use my art as a vehicle to uplift and to inspire hope through my craft.

Spring/Summer 2021 Collection – Invigorating Imagination

Certainly, we’ve all felt the lack of freedom over this past year. Being locked in our homes without the ability to travel freely and experience the world as we had become so accustomed to has dimmed the flame of creativity and passion in our hearts.

This soon-to-be-launched collection of premium, new silk scarf and silk cushion prints aims to help revive that passion, by taking the wearer – and the viewer – on a journey of enchanting colours, fairy tales, fragrances, and invigorating imagination.

My new Spring/Summer Collection of 2021 comprises designs inspired by the animals that once used to roam Morocco. Surrounded by the land’s indigenous flowers and fruits, these works are infused with the tangible aura of the regions fragrances and mystical spirit that resides both now and eternally.

Beginning as hand-drawn illustrations, I digitise these designs before printing them onto luxurious, ethically sourced silk. These illustrations resonate with our changing world and mentality, urging us to appreciate the beauty around us and work to preserve it. 

Wafting Whimsy – Silk Scarves and Silk Cushions

Available on square scarves, ribbon scarves, and twillies, I’ve now made these patterns accessible on comfortable cushions, too. Since going outdoors is a less frequent occurrence these days, art inspired by the lands of Marrakesh and the Atlas Mountains can now function as a muse in your own home while staying safe amidst luxurious comfort.

While my previous range offered a whimsical splash of colour and elegance on the pages of three Condé Nast Traveller issues in 2020, the latest collection brings extends its reach. The Ilona Tambor label offers a new variation of silk scarf, along with a home décor option to illuminate interior spaces.

How to Tie a Headscarf and Headwrap

Knots and Layers Part Two – How to Tie a Headwrap

Silk scarves and headwraps go together like strawberries and cream. They’re inseparable. Scarves made of exquisite silk have been used to adorn the bodies of both women and men through time. While it’s true that silk scarves provide that certain something to an outfit when draped nonchalantly around the neck, or tied into something more elaborate as an alternative to a statement necklace, a whole new world is opened up when they’re tied into a headwrap. If you’re looking for how to tie a headwrap, read on!

Headwraps are, excuse the pun, intertwined with tradition and are tied to various cultures around the world – some cultures wear them in a very similar fashion, for the same reasons, while they’re significant for other reasons in other parts of the world. Ghanaian women are famous for wearing ornately tied, brightly-coloured headwraps called duku, while South African and Namibian women similarly call their wrapped headgear doek. Traditionally, headwraps function as social markers, showing status, ethnicity, religious affiliation, or marital status, while it’s gained popularity today as both a fashion accessory and a practical one. For natural hair, especially curly hair that needs more care to keep breakage from occurring, a silk headwrap will brighten up your look and your day!

Reimagining the Headband

Headbands are a simple way to hold hair back when you’re not in the mood to tie it all up in a high bun or ponytail. It lets your mane flow, keeping you free to feel the wind in your hair. Yes, while it’s a great choice for a carefree day, you still want a fashionable edge to your look. Using a printed silk scarf.
Tying your hair up this way is great for when you’re in a hurry to get to work in the morning and you’re running late. You’ve run out of dry shampoo and the roots of your hair are showing signs of oiliness. Here’s how to tie a headwrap with a luxurious silk scarf. You can opt for a classic silk scarf size of 90 x 90cm or the larger option of 135 x 135cm.

  1. Place the scarf behind your head.
  2. Bring the ends to the front and criss-cross the scarf.
  3. Twist the ends over.
  4. Bring both ends around to the back.
  5. Tie a knot and tuck in the ends to polish the look.

Wrapping for Coverage

How to wear a scarf

When you’re looking for a little more coverage than a reimagined headband will offer, this headwrap style is ideal for when you want to rock loose hair or keep your hair completely covered. It’s a commonly worn headwrap across cultures, and its turban-esque vibe offers a bohemian twist to a somewhat corporate, buttoned-up look – especially when using one of our printed scarves. You’ll need a larger scarf for this wrap, so make sure to use one of our oversized silk scarves of 135 x 135cm.

1. Cover your head with the scarf, holding the ends together on either side, behind your head.

2. Criss-cross the ends behind your head, ensuring that both ends are held together.

3. Bring the ends to the front, then tie one last knot here to give the look that splendorous finish.

4. Last, tuck the ends behind this knot to complete the look.


A Crown with a Twist

How to wear a scarf

A little more intricate, this crown-style headwrap puts a spin on both smart-casual and formal. It brings attention to your favorite pair of drop earrings, and also shows off the neck, allowing you to add a glimmer to your look with a subtle, but complimentary necklace. Both the classic 90 x 90cm size of a silk scarf or the larger 135 x 135cm option is perfect.

1. Tie your hair back into a tight bun, or slick it back.

2. Cover your head with the scarf, pulling it towards the back.

3. Gather the ends and tie a knot.

4. Twist the separate ends over each other repeatedly, creating a rope.

5. Pull the twisted rope around the front, giving your crown a “wreath”, and tuck the end in near the back of your neck.
