A soft, sophisticated fabric and also one of the sturdiest natural fibers, silk has long embodied both strength and femininity. While silk is associated with royalty and class, this textile’s surprising versatility allows it to transcend the cocoon of old-world formality. From luxe fashion statements to chic home décor, Gwen and Lindsey are always keeping an eye out for fresh – sometimes surprising – takes on this traditional fabric.
