James Jean x Blitz Nymphs (left) and Lyrical (right) scarves
Who can forget Miuccia Prada’s collaboration with artist James Jean? For the brand’s spring/summer 2008 collection the former DC Comics cover artist created a series of fantastical nymph prints that decorated everything from handbags to clothing. It was an immediate hit with collectors (including myself). Unfortunately I was too late and never managed to buy a piece!

I hope to redeem myself by buying a piece from James’ latest collaboration with Hong Kong retailer Lane Crawford. This set of limited edition products designed exclusively for Blitz features his stunning and whimsical illustrations on silk chiffon scarves, pouches and iPhone covers. The store will also be launching James’ own line of abstract accessories, OVM, which includes gunmetal earrings fashioned into drips, printed butterfly rings and skull bone necklaces. I have my eye on one of the gorgeous print scarves (HK$1,975) – it will be mine!
