This design, 'Before the Rains', tells of the dry 'red centre' of Australia before the Summer Monsoon rains arrive (if they do!).
The original artwork depicts an aerial view of the landscape ... somewhere 'Outback'.
Colours used are soft pinks and bright oranges, with a touch of blues representing occasional billabongs and blue skies. As with all designs in this silk chiffon series, the overall effect is abstract.
It seems to me that simpler is better but you can be as complicated as you wish. See some of these ideas:
Use their bright but controlled colours to enliven an outfit. Let them float around you or use them as belts or hair ribbons. The choice is, obviously, yours!
Because the scarves are very fine (6 momme) they are semi-transparent, so each tends to take on the colour of the garment beneath it. In the case of this scarf, 'Before the Rains', you have a choice of gentle pinks, oranges or soft blues to wear underneath.
If you then fold or roll the scarf you will find that the colour intensifies. Enjoy experimenting!
