Milena Silvano

Hand dying, painting onto silks and hand-printing... these are the actions that define Milena’s simple and organic aesthetic. Her collection pays homage to craft as a feminine tradition and it follows the same ethics in it’s approach to reproduction; only a few pieces made on a personal order basis. Exclusive to Swanfield, Milena has made some beautiful scarves and patchwork dresses.

Swanfield became "Swanfield on Tour" when we took our shop of tricks on the road, but was also a tongue in cheek reference to our connection with music & instore performances. We have always liked to promote the crossing of mediums and how they inform and inspire eachother. Here is a music video Milena styled which captures her collection in moving pictures. The Villagers song is called "Ship of Promises" and was directed by Kathryn Ferguson.
