I was very kindly sent this Scarf for review and I was able to choose the item – however this does not affect my opinion of the brand/product. Powder was co-founded by Lisa Beaumont and Lucas Nicholls in 2009. With 45 years experience of design and branding knowledge between them they set out to create a new brand of fashion accessories! The powder philosophy is to create unique designs that brighten your day! To create scarves and designs that are loveable, offer the highest quality design and value, create the perfect gift and to give the customer the best possible service – what more could you ask for!
I have the *Powder Pippa Scarf which is from the ‘Cosy’ collection. I picked this particular Scarf as I do not have anything like it – it looks so unique. I love the Soft grey and Red combination! I would wear this scarf with jeans and a jumper or a plain black dress and leather jacket for example.
I find the quality of the Scarf to be exceptional, it is very well made and it is the softest Scarf I have ever tried! The knit is not overly chunky too but it is definitely not thin. It is super cosy, thick and a great size/length.
The length of the scarf is extraordinary, it can easily be wrapped multiple times around the neck or tied and left long, either way it keeps me very warm and cosy in the horrible British winter. One detail in particular that I like is the very simple but effective removable Felt brooch. It adds a touch of femininity do the masculine grey tone. I wore this Scarf yesterday while shopping in the cold and wind – it kept me warm and snugly all day, I didn’t want to take it off! I wore it with a white top, dark wash high waisted jeans and a black duffle coat. I am going to be buying my mum a scarf from Powder, I just can’t decide what yet – there is a lot of choice.
The Scarf was delivered very quickly, the only thing I was disappointed with was that my scarf wasn’t delivered with the trademark Gift bag, just in a grey postal bag. I know that this is one of the extra detail that Powder like to include and I was disappointed that mine didn’t not come with this. As they sent it to me (a blogger) to review I would have thought they would have liked to treat me as a regular paying customer and I hope that this was just a one off oversight. If you do buy one of the scarves, mittens or gloves as a gift then you should also have a gorgeous, super pretty gift bag for it! The attention to detail makes the product/brand stand out for me (as well as their unique, English heritage feel products) such as the gift bag, small labels on the scarf and the cute tag on the scarf. Overall, a gorgeous scarf that will see me through many autumn and winters – I would definitely recommend this scarf and the brand generally. The scarves, mittens and gloves would make gorgeous presents for birthdays, mothers day, valentines etc etc.
