When Johnny Depp introduced Terry-Ann and Nathalie from FRENCKENBERGER to Victoria Mary Clarke, wife of Shane MacGowan, at the Zurich Film Festival last year, the two straightforward cashmere girls were captured by Victoria’s channelling angel talks. Her inspiring way of looking at life gave a reason for an automatic collaboration between them.
FRENCKENBERGER rising from a Rick Owens background and Victoria’s above-earth rock & roll attitude, melted together in the Metatron scarf.
The 160×180 hand woven and screen painted cashmere scarf presents the angel of awakening (70 limited and hand numbered A edition pieces).
Victoria is a believer in angels. She said: “The angels may be real or they may be a figment of my imagination, but the angel images that I paint act like powerful symbols of love and wisdom and joy for me, they lift my spirits and make me feel guided and supported and safe, and it’s so abundant that it overflows and I want other people to feel it too. The angel scarves are a tangible, sensual manifestation of the feelings, and a way to spread them around the place so that other people can get a taste of this feeling. I felt the gorgeous softness and lightness of the FRENCKENBERGER cashmere, it seemed completely perfect to combine their fabric with my angel images, so that we have a piece of heaven that you can actually wrap around your head and shoulders like an embrace, which feels so blissful that maybe you even smile at strangers and help them to feel the angel vibe too.”
The FRENCKENBERGER x VMC cashmere angel scarf is available from Maxfield LA, Ikram Chicago, SSENSE online, The Corner Berlin, MAX Aspen , Amarees LA and Victoria Mary Clarke Angels.
