Karen Mabon for Love Design

Karen Mabon Local Heroes Love Design Scarf

This Valentine's Day, Karen Mabon has designed a limited edition pocket square for the Love Design showcase at the G&V Hotel, Edinburgh. Curated by Dr. Stacey Hunter of Local Heroes, the showcase brings together five designers, each with their own interpretation of the perfect Valentine's Day gift. Karen looked to old Hollywood to inspire this unisex pocket square, which can be used for either a pocket square or neck tie.

Love Wins!

Love Wins!

At Karen Mabon, we are proud to have collaborated with the fantastic BOB by Dawn O’Porter in designing a Limited Edition collection of Smirnoff bottles. Doctors, dancers and footballers are just a few of the illustrations by Karen of the 500 happy couples on rainbow-tinted bottles of Vodka. For every bottle sold, Smirnoff will donate to R U Coming out, the LGBTQ+ charity that raises awareness for and supports people coming out.

Lane Crawford Exclusive: Gifting Theatre Scarf

Every year we bundle up in scarves and big coats with pockets full of lollipops to head to the pantomime. The lights go down and the red velvet curtains swing open to reveal beanstalks, black cats and ballerinas and so begins a night of hilarity. This Christmas we have teamed up with Lane Crawford, the luxury Hong Kong department store, to create an exclusive scarf with inspired by the characters and excitement of the pantomime.

Let's Go to London

Our recent collaboration with National Portrait Gallery took us to the streets of London, where we imagined ourselves hopping on double decker buses with Twiggy, having afternoon tea in the Ritz with William Shakespeare and exploring museums with Grayson Perry. The scarf can be found in the National Portrait Gallery Shop and on their website. We'd love to see the adventures your London scarf takes you on so add #KarenMabon to your insta posts to share them.
