In collaboration with the Man Ray Trust, Alba Amicorum presents a new interpretation of Man Ray’s work: a limited-edition series of scarves based on original paintings and photographic works – including his signature art form, the ‘rayograph’, created by placing objects on light-sensitive paper. Working with muse and protégée Lee Miller, Man Ray used the process of solarization to create stunning portraits, nudes and still-lifes in which subjects circumscribed by shadowy lines appear to radiate a heavenly light.

‘We make art to wear as scarves, using the finest natural fabrics as our canvas. Each simple cloth square continues the creative process by inspiring personal style.’
–Darshana Shilpi Rouget, founder of Alba Amicorum.

From her studio in historic Belgravia, artist, graphic designer, and collector Darshana Shilpi Rouget has conceived Alba Amicorum as an incubator for wearable textile art. The medium is scarves, meticulously printed in limited editions, resulting from collaborations with artists and artisans. Their work is translated onto the finest silks and cashmere by a skilled family of Italian artisans in Como, who print scarves for the fashion world’s most prestigious designers. The collaborations at Alba Amicorum liberate art from the frame and onto fluid fabric – to be worn, draped or wrapped in any way the wearer chooses.
