Ways to Style a Dents Scarf

Scarves these days are so versatile that is can be hard to know how to style them. Recently, several new men’s women’s and unisex scarves have arrived as part of our Autumn/Winter 2014 launch, and now you can find out how to style these lovely designs…

Point it Out

Those who want to add a little edge to their outfit will definitely love this dogtooth print square scarf! Simply fold the square scarf in half to create a triangle, and wrap each end around your neck to achieve 3 pointed ends at the front.

Traditional Tassles

We love traditional tassle scarves, and we have several lovely patterns and knits available to choose from. Why not try the striped woolly cable knit scarf to begin with?

Cosy up in Faux Fur

If you want soft and luxurious texture, bring out this faux fur scarf in a rich berry colour. Loop it around your neck and secure it with the Velcro fastening to create a ‘V’ shape at the front.

Simplicity is Key

Eternity scarves and neck warmers are the best way to achieve instant cosiness, and they are the easiest styles to wear. Team up with a matching knit jumper for the ultimate wintery look.

Introducing the A/W14 Collection!

As we transition from a glorious summer to a cooler season, winter accessories are all we can think about! The Dents Autumn/Winter collection was recently launched online, but here is a glimpse of what’s on offer…

AW14 collection

Ladies’ gloves have become much bolder this season, with designs including animal prints and faux fur cuffs. Joining them in the women’s collection are a range of stunning handbags, scarves and winter warmers, ready for when the weather turns really chilly. Gents can stock up on the latest cosy leather gloves, dapper hats, and heritage scarves. We think each accessory will make a lovely addition to your winter wardrobe!

My Experience at Dents

We recently took on university student Katherine McDougall for a month’s worth of photography experience here at Dents HQ. Having just finished her first year of Photography at Falmouth University, this opportunity was a great way to spend her summer break.

Here’s a Q&A with Katherine…

What have you been up to?

I have mostly been photographing the extensive collection of gloves and artifacts from the Dents Museum, and then editing the images, ready for documentation. Several images needed to be taken for each glove, to record the detailing and labeling. I also helped take images of products for the Dents website.

What have you learnt?

I’ve learnt about the company and lots about product photography. My time here has helped me gain a futher understanding of compositions and editing, which I can take into future jobs.

Favourite part of your experience here at Dents?

The best part has been learning about product photography. I also enjoyed gaining experience in working for a company, which will help my career.

Any unusual pieces in the museum glove collection?

My favourite pieces were the miniature gloves from the Victorian era, which were used to show craftsmanship at such a small scale.

Mr Selfridge will Return for Series 3!

Earlier this year it was announced that the hit ITV drama Mr Selfridge will return to our screens for a third series! The show, which centres around store owner Harry Selfridge during the early years of his department store Selfridges & Co., has proven to be a popular period drama.

As you may know, Dents gloves have made a few appearances in the show during the last two series. Our red women’s silk lined leather glove was notably featured back in series one (read more here), and the latest series included several characters wearing our designs, as you will see here.

Between 17th – 21st June 2014, the annual Royal Ascot will be held in the small town of Ascot in Berkshire. The event dates way back to 1711 when it was founded by Queen Anne, and it has become tradition for the races to be opened everyday by the Royal Procession, during which the Queen and her guests arrive in a horse drawn landaus.

Will you catch a glimpse of the Queen?

Bikers Visit Dents

On Friday, the Dents museum was visited by a very interesting group of people…

Roaring into HQ on several Harley Davidsons and one trike, motorbike group The Hogsback Chapter arrived to learn about the history of gloves!

bikers

The Hogsback Chapter regularly go to events and rides throughout the year. Coming all the way from Surrey, the group decided to visit the museum as part of their ‘Wicked Wiltshire Weekend’. Events organiser Ruth – who originates from Wiltshire – had heard about the museum tour in a Daily Mail article, and thought it was worth a look!

Driving gloves museum

Our museum holds a fascinating collection of gloves throughout history. Of course, the bikers were particularly interested in the driving gloves worn by racing legends Stirling Moss and Jack Brabham, as well as Jack Nicholson’s Joker gloves in 1989’s Batman and the Bond gloves worn by Daniel Craig in Skyfall.

The tour ended with a look around the Factory Shop, where the bikers could take home some souvenir gloves and accessories. You never know, you may see them sporting a few pairs out on the roads!
