    ascher studio pop-up boutique

    From the moment we saw Ascher fabrics at a Textile event we fell in love! Ascher's fabrics literally turned our heads with their incredible prints and luxurious quality. We then learnt more about Ascher's rich fashion heritage. Ascher was the leading textile designer and manufacturer of the post war years supplying Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy, Saint Laurent et al with his fabrics; he also collaborated with the greatest artists of the time. Matisse and Moore, Cocteau and Toplski (amongst many others) worked with him on exquisitely printed head-scarves; Henri Mattise and Henry Moore also created vast wall panels for Ascher.

    These works can be purchased and enjoyed on the new Ascher website and at the forthcoming Ascher London pop-up. The pop-up will included framed vintage scarves designed for Zika Ascher by Picasso, Matisse, Francoise Gilot, Barbara Hepworth, Cecil Beaton, Henry Moore, and others. Large wall panels by Henry Moore which he designed for Ascher when he was their in-house textile designer, silk screen-printed on thick cotton. Archive correspondence to and from many of the artists - as well as archive photographs, to tell the story of these innovative collaborations in the 1940s.

    The entire S/S 2011 scarf collection will be there, to view and to purchase, featuring scarves screen-printed on gorgeous silk twill, silk chiffon and the softest cashmere. The new A/W 2011 collection will also be launched (but not available for purchase to the public yet).

    The pop-up opens on 18th February and runs till March 15. Free entry. Open 10:00 - 18:00, Monday - Saturday. 221 Brompton Road, SW3 2EJ.

    We are delighted to offer a wonderful selection of screen-printed cotton 70's vintage Ascher neck scarves at Tallulah & Hope.

She spent her twenties living New York where she worked as a model and also ran a horse-riding school in Pasadena indulging her life-long passion for riding and horses. In her late twenties she moved to London for love and married restaurateur Tom Conran, they have three daughters.

The Collective events are edited and curated by Cynthia, they take place regularly throughout the year in friends and families homes. The next Collective event will take place on 8th and 9th March in west London.

    Cynthia also works with A.S.A.P a small charity that raises funds for African orphans who have lost their parents to the AIDS epidemic.

    T&H spent the morning with in Cynthia's beautiful home where she told us about her work, favourite places to eat and drink, and modelled pieces from our launch collection.

    T&H: Why did you decide to launch The Collective?
    CN: I enjoy fashion and design and i often meet really interesting designers, i saw an opportunity for me to support small, independent brands by bringing them together and creating events where people can enjoy their work in an intimate, very relaxed way. The events are the antithesis of high-street shopping! They are where you can experience brands that you might not know of; everyone who shows at part of the Collective are chosen because they are offer something unique and special.

    T&H: Tell us about some of the brands who have shown at The Collective
    CC: It's a pretty eclectic mix! Beautiful jewellery from designers such as Sally Dudumesh, Istanbul based jeweller Verda Alaton, Brooke Gregson and Jade Jagger, 'Cuir 'Et Terre' artisan leather goods from the Dordogne, organic beauty brands, 'Exquises Caprines' soaps sourced from France made from goats milk, 'KH Textiles' cashmere throws from Finland, ethical fashion brands, accessory brand Pinki that uses South African springbok skins, cashmere wraps which i design, luxury silk kaftans from Tallulah & Hope!, to 'Bluglass and Muir' who create art pieces from Medieval London artefacts.

    T&H: What's coming up for The Collective?
    CC: The next event will be on the 8th and 9th March and will be hosted in the home of florist Nikki Tibbles who founded Wild At Heart. We have a lovely mix of lifestyle brands alongside some therapists giving mini-treatments.

    T&H: Your favorite West London places to eat and drink?
    CC: I'm lucky to be part of a restaurant family so i have lots of places to choose from. Coming from California i love good Mexican food and well-made margarita's. We called Crazy Homies (Tom Conran's Mexican restaurant) after an LA street gang 'vatos locos' it's where i go to drink margarita's with girlfriends, eat Mexican and a enjoy music. I also love visiting my brother-in-law's Mexican El Camino on Portobello Road (there is also a branch in Soho). My favourite dish at The Cow is the fish stew and i can't resist the chocolate, raspberries brownies with white chocolate chips at Tom's Cafe.

    T&H: When you venture outside West London?
    CC: I love Scotts and Le Caprice for the glamour and buzz they're great classic London restaurants. I love the Japanese food at Roka. The bar at The Boundary (Sir Terence Conran's hotel/cafe/restaurant) in Shoreditch makes beautiful cocktails and the food is fantastic.
