Age of Reason has been to the wild and windy city of Edinburgh 
to seek inspiration for Autumn Winter 2012. 
Here are some of the sights we saw. 

We love the untamed magical quality of Edinburgh
Whilst in the city we came across the fabulous Fifi Wilson boutique in Bruntsfield.
 This is a must for luxury fashion in Scotland. 


We do like a cheeky mention by Badaude, the fab Times T2 illustrator.  
Here she does boyish with style, and draws an Age of Reason pocket square around the wrist 
of her "excellently dressed" boy-girl. 

Here's one of our union jack pocket squares photographed as a wrist cuff. 

These are available from Bordello London on Great Eastern Street. 
Nearest Tube Old St or Liverpool St
Close to Spitalfields Market and Brick Lane

Without giving too much away, we'd like to introduce you to Alexis, one of our Bondage Dolls for SS12.  Named after uber-stylist Alexis Knox, an original Age of Reason supporter known for her appearance on T4 Style The Nation. The real life Alexis is not just a TV star, but a downright cool chic and doyenne of all things "major".  Alexis's namesake has cheeky nurse styling and some popping neons to brighten up your day. And, although you can't tell from this small image,  the design also incorporates 12 different tones of grey, inspired by the painting "Diacetoxyscirpenol" by Damien Hirst. You can pick up the Hirst for  £18K.  The scarves will be available in silk from around £120 next season. 

For our current fashion collection please visit Start London or Whistles King's Road, Hampstead & St Christopher's Place. 

Bondage Doll Alexis has 6  saucy new friends, and we called upon our Twitter followers to help us name one of them this week. The shortlisted names were Astra, Ananstasia and Betsy. Follow us at @AgeofRScarves

The SS12 Bondage Doll scarf name voted by our Twitter followers was "Anastasia"  by
Well done. An Anastasia scarf will be on its way to you very soon.

Our 2 runners up- @Blingery who suggested Betsy and @kattighe81 who suggested Astra will both get mini scarves which can be worn as pocket squares, neckerchiefs or handbag scarves.

There really are no rules when it comes to how to wear a Whistles Regal Doll scarf this Autumn Winter. But here's a few suggestions anyway.

Wear them with a light trench, wear them with muted wooly jumpers or coloured blazers. You'll find plenty of nude blazers out there that go brilliantly with them. 

 Try them casually round your neck, in a top knot-bow (like in CAPTURED below) , in a Jackie O under the chin knot, twisted as a bandana, in a bow on the side of your neck, as a belt over a dress and cardigan, as a cravat with a boyish shirt. 

Regal dolls are inspired by the Royal Wedding (Night) and are available from Whistles King's Road, Hampstead, and St Christopher's Place.
