The story behind
A graduate of Saint Martins and the Royal Drawing School in London, Alice Shirley regularly collaborates with the city's Natural History Museum. Seduced both by the myth of Pegasus and by the untameable nature of zebras, she reinvents the legend on this scarf and takes it to Southern Africa. Zeus' celestial mount, which brought out the source of the muses with a strike of his hoof, and which the king of the gods turned into a constellation, abandons the immaculate whiteness which is generally attributed to him to adopt the two-tone coat of the zebras. And to perfect this unique, exotic portrait, its wings take on the shimmering colors of parrots!
