Jason Wu designs celebratory scarves for St. Regis Istanbul
In a somewhat unexpected move, the St. Regis group of Hotels and Resorts are celebrating the launch of a new Hotel in Istanbul with a beautiful scarf designed by Jason Wu.
The 'Grad Tourista Scarf' is inspired by the city itself and reflects Istanbul's energy all the while design sensibilities of the hotel group, and of course Jason Wu.
Made from 100% silk twill it comes in three colour palettes: blue due to the city's famous ceramic tiles, a neutral beige inspired by fragrant spices that fill the markets of the city and grey, which is a signature shade for Wu.
The news of a design collaboration is perhaps unsurprising in some ways, considering the designer does share a history with St. Regis and he attends many of the hotel group's milestone events.
