My favorite things to make for the Norwegian Wood collection are pieces that somehow merge with things already in your wardrobe and make them new again. The elastic harness and fringe necklace are two of those ideas, and now I decided to make a more tailored item, in the form of this standalone collar.

The Fall 2011 collection is Inspired by the prairie lands where I grew up. Days spent walking along flax fields, evenings spent burning chaff with my grandpa and dad. Burning fields, golden wheat, clusters of flax buds, endless blue skies and starry nights.

For this collection I had the pleasure of collaborating with my friend/Montreal artist Jen Storey. After discussing the history of the burning fields/prairie life Jen created 4 original paintings which were then digitally printed on silk and used to create 2 dresses, a decorative trim used on a blouse and THIS lovely collar. Check out Jens prints at http://www.jenstorey.etsy.com

The collar is made of digitally printed 100% silk on the outside and unbleached lightweight linen on the underside and is fully fused for the perfect stiffness. The band of the collar is a smooth grey leather, and the collar closes at the front with a silver tone snap.

The circumference of the neck band is 15" / 38cm
