Danish Scarf Label's Parisian Space
Created by Danish designers Bess Nielsen and Jan Machenhauer, Epice's scarves and stoles combine bold prints with fine woven textiles. Translating as 'Spice', Epice designs come in an exotic colour palette which reflects the label's evocative name, with geometric and floral and fauna prints combining the traditional lines of Danish design and Nielsen's travels in India. All scarves are handmade in India using fine yarns of silk, cotton and wool in the designs for both men and women.
The duo's Parisian store in the Palais Royal, sourced by Jamal, Nielsen's son and brand director, is a former antique shop and has been carefully renovated to reflect the label's Scandinavian heritage. The label opened its own store in October 2010 but is also stocked in over 450 boutiques and department stores worldwide, including Liberty, Viva and Fenwick in London and Barneys and Bloomingdales in New York. Prices start from around £70.
