Liz Nehdi designs offer a spectacular expression of bold, invigorating colours, hypnotic patterns and gestural, painterly prints that are layered with meaning. These are complemented by the finest craftsmanship and luxurious textiles to create playful, distinctive and soulful accessories with an artistic heritage. Our brand aims to introduce a way of life that celebrates fun, creative expression, optimism, and the beautiful complexities of the global village in which we all live. Liz Nehdi Studio was founded in 2014 by Liz & Karim Morgan Nehdi.

The inaugural Spring/Summer 2015 collection of scarves and pocket squares draws from Liz’s inspirations as a painter, interpreting and distilling creative traditions from around the globe – from abstract expressionism, art naïf and aboriginal dot paintings to graffiti, Berber patterns, and psychedelia.

We are accepting wholesale orders for Spring/Summer 2015 through 14 November 2014. Please email liz@liznehdi.com for more information.

How do you take your orange?

Orange Collage by Liz Nehdi. Image credits below.

Orange is a polarizing colour; I personally love it, yet you’ll never find me dressed in it from head to toe. And some people reaaaaalllly hate it. Then there are my Dutch friends who wear it as a badge of pride.

The tricky thing about orange is how it plays with other colours. But with the collage above, I’m hoping to show you some classic and less traditional ways to pair it with other colours. Here’s a little cheat sheet for you.

Easy + classic

  • Orange + black = classic Halloween combo
  • Orange + white = slighty preppy + tropical vibe
  • Orange + blue = complementary colours that really pop when used together

Intermediate

  • Shades of orange + yellow, gold, white + yellow ochre = a bit retro, a bit modern
  • A deep orange (such as burnt umber), tan + a mellow yellow = autumnal energy

Advanced + unexpected

  • Various shades of orange, hot pink, black, white, tan, denim blue, gray + highlighter yellow = unexpected awesomeness, in my opinion. A little bit jazzy, a hint of urban cool, and again, just a fantastic combination of colours
  • Orange, baby blue, violet, yellow ochre, gray, brown, green, lime, tan + lilac = modern rainbow (you get extra points if you can pull this off)

Whatever your feelings on orange, you simply can’t escape it this time of year, what with all of the pumpkins, candy corn and burnt orange leaves underfoot. With that in mind, I hope you enjoy this collage of patterns, art and clothes that showcase orange’s versatility -- oh and the obligatory pumpkin -- in honour of Halloween. Larger individual images from the collage, image credits and a smattering of other images are below.
