Candice Held is a luxury resort brand designed in Palm Springs and sewn in Italy, California, and the U.K. Materials include imported fabrics and silk scarves printed with Candice’s original textile designs. Our mission is to create the heirlooms of tomorrow.
Silk scarves are produced in Como, Italy. The Upcycled Vintage Collection incorporates vintage scarves and fabrics.
Candice Held is an award-winning California designer known for her uniquely impeccable sense of color, hand-illustrated silk scarves, and flattering, versatile silhouettes. Her designs have been exhibited at many runway presentations including Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
Candice designs each garment silhouette herself, from concept to sketch, draping, paper pattern and production sample.
Each silk scarf and textile design begins with Candice’s original drawings and paintings using microfine pen, liquid watercolor, and gouache painting. Layouts are then composed digitally, with many hours invested in tirelessly perfecting each composition.
Candice Held practices a no-waste policy. Her silk scarf designs are produced in Como, Italy in small quantities. Best-selling silhouettes are continuously updated in new prints and colors. None of her prints are discarded or discontinued between seasons. Rather, each new design is integrated as a compliment to her existing range of timeless classics, to be collected and cherished for years to come.
The harmony over time of Candice’s designs means that pieces from today’s collection can be effortlessly worn with styles from past seasons.
