For so long, fashion was about the “it” bag and the “it” shoe. But as Katherine Danneberg, the divisional merchandise manager for shoes and accessories at Anthropologie, said, “It’s definitely about an ‘it’ scarf now.” Or, more precisely, a flurry of “it” scarves, some boasting labels like Missoni, Etro, Yves Saint Laurent and Alexander McQueen. In kaleidoscopic colors and patterns — tribal motifs, overblown peonies, cheetah spots, abstract skulls and awning stripes — they’re eye candy for a new generation. Not since the pashmina rage a dozen or more years ago have scarves made such a splash.
That being said, for me it is not about the label as much as it is about the diversity. How many of my pieces would benefit from having this scarf! What would the cost per wear scenario be? How many different ways can I wear it? These are all questions I ask myself and my clients when searching out scarves! If you are looking for an amazing scarf, keep those questions in mind, and if you can’t find what you are looking for, contact me and I will do my best to find you the perfect scarf!
