National Motor Museum Director of Collections Andrea Bishop said: “This was an exciting opportunity to use our world-famous collections in a refreshingly different way. The project enabled us to invite designers and artists to find inspiration in our world Land Speed Record breaking cars, to create designs that would suit high-quality commercial products. Each of these very special cars is a design icon and so were a compelling choice for this creative initiative. David Watson have added three new designs made for the National Motor Museum to their luxurious range of silk scarves and pocket squares.”
Samuel David Watson Petty, founder of New Forest-based David Watson, said: “I am so pleased to add these designs to my range of silk accessories. They are inspired by the National
Motor Museum’s iconic cars and are a perfect match for our British made products.”
The National Motor Museum Trust, a charitable organisation, will receive a modest royalty from the sale of the scarves, along with the creatives who designed them.
