La Bohème – Kasia Struss rocks a bold mix of eclectic prints, standout jewelry and even denim for the April 2013 edition of Numéro. The Polish beauty poses for Greg Kadel in polished studio images wearing designs from labels such as Calvin Klein Collection, Forget me not scarf and Chanel selected by stylist Bill Mullen. For beauty, Kasia dons elaborate braids by hair stylist Ward with metallic eyeshadow courtesy of makeup artist Mariel Barrera.
The new SS2011 accessories collection from Forget-Me-Not is inspired by Mythology. Designer Coco’s 100% silk scarves – which are are digitally printed in Como, Italy – depict scenes featuring characters whose tales of heroism, romance and mystery have captured mankind’s imagination across the centuries.
As always, the Forget–Me-Not muses appear in the form of delicate female characters depicted in dreamlike scenarios. Fine featured and full of mischief, these sylphs are surrounded by winged creatures and fantastical beings including butterfly, ornate shells and tropical birds. Twisted ropes of pearls snake through elegant tuniques whilst Coco’s unique geometrical abstractions add a graphic quality that compliments the whimsical nature of her illustrations.
In a palette of ocean blues, rich purple and midnight black, on which brighter hues are set off against a backdrop of neutral tones to give each composition a beguiling sense of depth. Moreover, with every design meticulously rendered by hand, this latest collection in the highly successful Forget-Me-Not series is a covetable extension of Coco’s work as a sought after fashion illustrator.

“Forget me not” is a series of Art mode digital prints on scarves and turban, all 100% silk. As an extension of the coco’s work as an illustrator, all designs are based exclusively on personal compositions and all elements have been hand-drawn by her. Coco was commissionned for magazines such as Vogue, Nylon, ELLE, and Muse as well as a number of corporate clients: K Karl Lagerfeld, Evian Cosmetics and Addition Adelaide in Japan. It was this rapid success that convinced Coco to set up Forget Me Not, a line of exquisitely hand-rendered, digitally printed scarves. It is a small collection, always of three original design themes in two separate colour waves, which encapsulates the essence of feminine beauty, balancing ethereal imaginary worlds and delicate penmanship against strong geographic patterns and a rich palate of colours.
The collection is available in a selection of Luxury Stores around the world : Barneys (USA), Boon the shop (Korea), Cochinechine (London) Colette (Paris), Club designer (Taiwan), Fenwick ( London ), Jean Brown ( Australia ), Lane Crawford ( Hong kong ) Storm (Copenhagen), Tea Rose ( Italy ) and More
