Gina Pipet is a designer, maker and artist from London who has lived and worked on the South Bank for over a decade.

Known for her distinctly graphic style, her geometric patterns and statement prints can be found across a range of fashion, lifestyle accessories, and custom-made fabrics. Through a commitment to quality and sustainability, combining technology and artisan skill, Gina has built a loyal following and developed the PIPÉT name into a much-loved brand.

‘Dream No Small Dreams’ is the new collection launch of statement scarves by Gina Pipet during Open House London & London Design Festival 2022.

Bursting with joyous colour, this collection follows on from Gina’s most ambitious art collaboration to date with Coin Street, titled ‘Dream No Small Dreams’. The recent collaboration with Coin Street consists of five large-scale art panels, which can be found installed on the walls of Bargehouse. It celebrates the longstanding designer-maker community at Oxo Tower Wharf, representing the significance of having a place to grow, flourish, and nurture one’s creative practice.

Dream no small dreams, for they have no power to move the hearts of men.

The design of the scarves celebrates London’s architecture through shape, colour, and composition, as Gina looks to London’s industrial past as inspiration.

Reimagining London’s iconic Oxo Tower, this collection pays homage to a building close to her old home on the South Bank where she founded her creative business. Inspired by its strong architecture, ‘Dream No Small Dreams’ tells the story of London’s rich industrial past met with today’s determined creative community of designer-makers on the South Bank.

When choosing a subject to draw, it’s important to connect with it. In a crowded city, the river became a place where I found space. I spent many days taking in the sights and sounds of the Thames shoreline, enjoying its tides, traffic, and hidden beaches.

Illuminating the skyline with its branded windows, the Oxo Tower became a beacon for home. It embodies my London family, creativity, and a belonging to the community on the South Bank where I lived and worked for so many years.

Designed to excite and uplift, these statement scarves are the perfect addition to a modern wardrobe. Boasting a radiant sunburst motif, the Art Deco influences of the era are captured through oversized graphics and exciting geometric forms that are recognisable on the design.

The scarves also come in a variety of styles, including the classic 90cm square and popular skinny and mini scarves, each available in five assorted colour options. New for 2022 is the introduction of an elegant silk twill fabric, which remains printed and locally produced in England.

A perfect gift for architecture & design lovers, the collection will be launched for Open House London and is available online at to mark London Design Festival in September 2022.

The impressive Art Deco style of the Oxo Tower evokes a powerful optimism and monumental strength. I wanted to channel that positive energy into my latest scarves, through this striking, colourful, and uplifting design.
