Christmas is fast approaching and thoughts turn to those seasonal themes and colours so familiar to us all. Though ‘red and green should never be seen…’ as the saying goes, this is a time of year when those most iconic of Christmas colours can be employed to great effect. Whether the red berries of holly against dark green leaves, ruddy Santa Claus outfits or shiny red baubles and mistletoe; no colours evoke this annual yuletide festival more. Wearing Christmas colours needn’t always be brash, flippant or humorous. Our cool acrylic ‘Evergreen’ brooch worn on a warm red knit jumper or jacket takes a more subtle approach to the season. Similar arty acrylic brooches in the Arthouse collection make fabulous presents which will be enjoyed throughout the year.
In December, Stewart tartan has a decidedly festive feel with its Christmas colours in plaid prints and weaves. We have earrings, compact mirrors, hair-wear and even umbrellas. All these go to show you can make a Christmas presentation without reindeer horns or snowmen suits! The many items in the Tartan collection offer a way to build a great Christmas themed display without the tinsel. Add a few cosy scarlet hats and some elegant gold and silver leaves from the Flora and Fauna collection for an attractive alternative to the typical fare of the time.
If you feel more like going all out ‘deck the halls’, our range of Christmas themed socks is bigger than ever and has all the favourite characters. A choice of snowmen, santas and reindeer are on offer in a variety of styles.Elves, cats, polar bears and penguins in the same theme are also to be found. Scandi snowflakes, and Nordic deer are a little less full on and eskimo and santa sleigh designs are yet another super option.
