Neckerchief Chic - The Art of the Small Scarf
Melanie Laslett, founder and owner of British luxury accessories brand LASLETT ENGLAND says, “There is something about a little printed scarf that transcends fashion, an accessory to love and cherish and a great wardrobe fix for the days when you don’t know what to wear. Start with the scarf, team it with a plain dress or a printed one if you like to mix patterns together. Dress it up or dress it down; not only does it add colour and interest, but it’s also mood enhancing and makes you feel finished.”
Shape, colour and pattern all interact in the designs, LASLETT ENGLAND’S neckerchiefs are printed with vintage style florals contrasted by a geometric border design and finished with either a hand-rolled or hand-finished edge in a contrasting colour which makes it look beautiful when tied. It’s all about the detail.
The square shape can be worn in a number of ways to suit your style. Melanie says, “Many women I speak to often say they don’t know how to wear a scarf, but a neckerchief couldn’t be easier, think of it as a piece of jewellery. Fold the square into a triangle, roll it over and style it knotted at the front or best positioned slightly askew on one side ‘a la Audrey Hepburn in Roman holiday’, the more jauntily the better!” It can also be folded over a couple of times on the diagonal and worn as a hairband, styled cowgirl-style or to personalise a bag.
A neckerchief has lasting appeal and makes a special gift. There are certain presents that we keep, and a scarf is often a treasured item. For that reason, LASLETT ENGLAND scarves come packaged in a signature red box which is a good way to store it too. “It’s a great accessory to pack for a trip as it’s super light, takes up no room and can be worn with more than one outfit. This style of a scarf is a chic accent to dressing, a wearable work of art – and one is never enough!”.
Notes to editors:
LASLETT ENGLAND specialises in luxury hand-finished printed accessories including scarves, neckerchiefs and pocket squares.

LASLETT ENGLAND cares about a slow and sustainable approach to fashion by creating accessories with timeless appeal in limited numbers.
Working from her studio in Hastings, East Sussex, Melanie’s designs are inspired by art, architecture, found items and the natural world; each design invariably has a hint of vintage. Every product is made in England using specialist manufacturers, using only the finest silks, wools and blended natural fabrics.

About Melanie Laslett:
“For as long as I can remember, I have been drawn to vintage and found objects, which are the inspiration for many of my new designs. Studying Textile Design in the '80s I started collecting vintage handkerchiefs from the ’30s and ’40s. To me, these were small exquisite works of art, framed by the confines of a border on a canvas of fabric, each one like a miniature painting. They invariably had no maker signature, but I always felt they had an intrinsic value which gave them a lasting appeal. So, my love of accessories began…
“I love clothes and fashion and I am fascinated by how someone puts things together to reflect their individual personality and unique sense of style. The accessories I design add an element of individuality for each person – their style signifier. The way men and women dress now is more interchangeable, men, in particular, are more aware of how they style themselves. Every design is my own original creation, a mix of many references, each with a hint of vintage. Ultimately, I would like anyone who wears one of my designs to feel they have the perfect finishing touch to their outfit, a signature piece that endures.”
