Car Scar ves Complement Concour s d'Elegance B Y M I C H A E L C H AT F I E L D N ic and Katee Waller are consultants for car events—including the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance—and so naturally have attended dozens of automotive events. One fact stood out. "We noticed that typically there's almost nothing for women," says Katee. "We saw an opportunity." That vision led to the creation of NK Collections and a line of car scarves that feature auto-related designs on silk and cashmere scarves. What better accessory to accompany a fun ride in a top-down classic automobile? "I have a background in graphic design," Nic says. "I created the art and we designed the scarves together." "The fabrics are special," says Katee. "We do four designs on 100-percent cashmere, and six different cars on a blend of cashmere and modal from Italy: Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Delahaye, Ferrari, Porsche and Jaguar." The silk versions feature designs based on classic car grills. "Our very first customer at last year's Concours d'Elegance was an entrant," Nic says. "She bought several—one for each of her cars." The Wallers' Car Scarves are available at Augustina's on Ocean Avenue in Carmel, at Pebble Beach RetroAuto at Spanish Bay, and at the mer- chandise tent on the fairway at this year's Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance on August 26th. They are also sold online at SHORTCUTS AT LARGE Katee and Nic Waller are car event consultants who have designed a line of scarves featuring marques like Alfa Romeo, Bugatti, Ferrari and Porsche. 86 C A R M E L M A G A Z I N E • S U M M E R / F A L L 2 0 1 8 Photo: Kelli Uldall
