Thank you all so much for your support of my new venture. Since I announced the opening of the Chicatanyage scarf shop last Friday I have been overwhelmed with good wishes and several of you have made purchases. The print styles have been the most popular especially the Leopards. Some are now sold out. I will do my best to restock with similar styles and will let you know when new stock has been added to the shop,
Why these scarves:
I first had the idea of opening an online shop selling scarves from the market in St.Tropez about six months ago. Over the years I have had many compliments regarding the scarves I wear on the blog and quite a few enquiries as to where to purchase them.
So now you can the Chicatanyage shop is open
The scarves in the shop are personally sourced from the market stalls in St.Tropez by me. This means that many of them are one-offs; although I have tried to include some styles that will be constantly available so that I can restock.
The scarf that I am wearing above is the deep teal cashmere and silk scarf/shawl. It is also available in a cool toned red and soft grey. It can be worn as a scarf or a shawl on chilly summer evenings,
Here I am wearing one of our 100% wool lilac scarves. It is soft, lightweight and easy to pack as it rolls up into a small ball and takes up very little room in a suitcase. I always have one or two with me when I travel.
Another example of the 100% wool lightweight scarf. This time in purple, a very popular colour this season. From the many comments you left on my previous post “Shall we wear purple?” many of you are fans of this colour.

When I visited Paris last December I observed that large fluffy scarves were all the rage. Sitting in the cafes in St.Tropez last January I noticed that this trend was also popular among the local French women in the South of France. This paisley and geometric print scarf is 80% wool and 20% cashmere.
Leopards and more leopards were stalking the catwalks last season and leopard prints have continued to be popular this Spring. Above is a leopard style print scarf with yellow borders.
As the weather is beginning to get warmer we have also included a range of lighter weight scarves. The one I am wearing above is a star print scarf in a combination of light pink and grey. It is also available in dark green with a grey border and black with a red border. My grey jeans and sweater are by WinserLondon.
