Hello scarf lovers!
I hope you have had a wonderful Holiday time. Was Santa nice to you? Did he bring all the scarves you put on your Christmas wish list?
2013 will be an exciting and promising year. The Chinese place it under the sign of the Water Snake. My personal calendar indicates something else. It says “Year of the Scarf”!
You think: we are only in January! I know, I know. Yet time is already flying and you need to be ready to surf on the scarf wave which will soon be tremendous, believe me! So many spring collections with scarves…. So many fashion designers playing with has become a must-have / hit accessory…
By the way, I will soon have to tell you about a major, exciting, stirring, thrilling, stimulating, motivating, inspiring (and time-consuming!) project I have regarding scarves. Stay tuned. More in a few weeks!
Dolce Gabanna is all about silk head scarves with hair pulled up into a chignon and oversized colorful earrings: beautifully baroque. What an invigorating way to celebrate spring!
Marc Jacobs wants us to wear scarves as turbans and / or neck scarves. His collection conveys a delightful and sophisticated (fake) countryside look. To be worn preferably when strolling the streets of a big trendy city!
Ralph Lauren obviously found inspiration in France – scarf and beret, no baguette on the runways – and in Spain – scarf and Spanish hat, no bulls on the runways. Fresh, European, and lovely!
Young designers express creativity too.
Nicholas and Christopher Kunz (Nicholas K fashion design) revisit the ethnic style and bring a touch of “Star wars” to it: colors of the desert, fluid lines, large flowing scarves, who wouldn’t love this soft and quiet way to wear a scarf?
Altuzarra (a young Franco American Chinese designer) dreams of princesses and wants us to wrap our shoulders into opulent and rich shawls. There is something of Scheherazade in his appealing collection.
In the meanwhile Vuitton announces its collaboration with Brazilian graffiti artists (Os Gemenos). The famous French brand should release very soon a new series of silk scarves. Here is a preview of what they might look like. To tell you the truth, I am not fond at all of this design… What about you?
Are you on for the year of the scarf? Which scarves will you wear and how will you wear them?
I fall for head scarves / turbans. And you ? Below is one of my favorite pics.
If you too love turbans I show more in my scarf CD book.
I can’t wait to hear from you.
Silky hugs and Happy New Year again
