Every project I undertake is bespoke to the yacht or homeowner and collaborative in nature to ensure I connect the inspirations that speak to me with the personal tastes of my client.
When Gretchen Barbatelli, Owner & Creative Director of Swiss Silk Company asked me to collaborate on a custom scarf and tie design project for the owner of a super-yacht being designed and constructed domestically in the United States, I naturally leaped at the opportunity.
Gretchen presented the idea: to commemorate this extraordinary vessel’s christening and personalize the overall yacht experience by developing ties and scarves for the crew, and as gifts for the owner’s guests.
The process from conception through the final product was written about beautifully on the Swiss Silk website and a copy of that blog post written by Gretchen is below.
