When two of your friends start up their own brand of scarves there’s not much you wouldn’t do to support them. That includes modelling for their launch campaign wearing the silk scarves……….wearing only the silk scarves. It felt like the modern day Jack and Rose as he sketched her wearing only a necklace. Thankfully no one drowned at the end of this version though.

Instead we were warm and snug in our apartment with our living room becoming the studio, our bedroom the wardrobe area and our dining table the make-up counter. Once we were set up and ready to roll I was put in my first outfit, a white off the shoulder shirt, with knee length denim skirt and of course a Frankie Peach scarf wrapped effortlessly around my neck. We started shooting but something didn’t feel quite right.

“Weren’t we going to shoot this nude?” asked Georges inquisitively. “Yes but only a couple of shots we thought?” responded Sali. “What if we do the whole shoot is nude?” pushed Georges. I saw Sali and Lotta’s eyes light up with excitement and uncertainty. “Well if you’re game so are we!” And that’s how it happened. When you’ve got scarves that look this good who needs to be distracted by clothes anyway?

"Hello cheeky!"

It’s always a bit nerve wracking doing a nude shoot, however this one was amplified by the fact that it was the first nude shoot I had done since becoming pregnant. Although shooting for a brand created by women who are also mothers themselves made me feel empowered and accept my body for all its tiny changes. The shoot is cheeky and risque which I think is a perfect reflection of the scarves themselves with sketches of nude females and images of skulls and guns.

Seeing the scarves come to life was incredible and to be a part of it even more so. I have looked up to Sali and Lotta for such a long time and it was an honour to be a Frankie Peach girl. Georges captured the mood and feel of the shoot perfectly. Giving it life and energy and letting the scarves shine. I fell in love with Frankie Peach scarves the minute I saw them. They are wearable, versatile and I adore the slightly vintage edge. They are also perfect at hiding a bad hair day.

Here’s a peachy insight into the ladies behind the label.

Q:  Why scarves?

Sali: When I had to wear scarves during my chemo treatment I really struggled to find anything decent so much so that most of the time I would go without which didn't always make me feel comfortable, walking around bald but it was better than wearing a scarf that looked like I stole it from my grandmothers wardrobe.
I randomly one night was looking at old pics and Nathan (my husband) just said, why don't you finally design scarves ... that's how it came about.

Lotta: Sali was the one that came up with scarfs, but I have been working in the fashion industry for over a decade so I knew there was a gap in the market to be filled. There is something so understated and luxe about silk twill in particular that I love. 

Q: What’s your favorite peach dish?

S: I can't go past some yummy grilled peaches with vanilla ice cream topped with some home made crumble crushed over the top.

L: Does a Bellini on a hot summer day count as a dish? 

Q: What are you top tips for styling your outfit with a scarf this summer?

S: Either pick one of our florals for an easy summer match or pair our scarves with a pair of hoop earrings (see our pic of Anna Heinrich on our Insta) for a vintage inspired summer look.

L: Personally I can’t go past the classic knot around my neck. The twilly’s are also a lifesaver for my dirty hair days when I just pull my hair up in a topknot and wrap it around. When in doubt what to actually wear it with, a tonal look is always stylish. What we really want to do though is educate women (and men) on how to wear scarfs as it’s such a versatile piece. Hence we put together our Style It section on the site: https://frankiepeach.com/style-it/

Q: Whose peach would you most like to squeeze?

S: My husbands  *cough* Ryan Goslings

L: Ohhh...tough question! This is really lame, but I do love to squeeze my boyfriends peach. Juggling work, my own business and a baby means we don’t spend that much time together anymore. Also wouldn’t mind giving Alexander Skarsgård a quick one.
