This new silk scarf featuring the joyous broken tile mosaic of Antoni Gaudi is pure style. From the Modern Art Collection, it combines art and fashion in gorgeous abstract shapes and colours which make it versatile as well as sophisticated—and it perfectly chimes with the current fashion for silk squares.
The mosaic is a detail from Gaudi’s famous Parc Guell in Barcelona. Its neutral ivory ground accentuates each splash of colour from the new season palette: primrose yellow, lapis blue, pink yarrow, kale, black, silver, bronze and sea green. It makes a perfect game-changer for a plain outfit, instantly lifting a look.
The scarf is a wonderful way to wear fine art. It’s this perfect finishing touch that you want to look like a spontaneous touch of fashion genius. Scarf-wearing options abound; you can sport it as a turban; wrapped around a bag handle; as a belt, gently draped across the shoulder line, or tied into an off-centre bow. And this season the Cannes, which wraps twice around the neck and finishes in a knot, is the style of choice for many big names in the world of couture, riding high on the neck to flatter the face, giving the look of a choker and the beauty of fine art and pure silk.
However you wear this scarf it will be a fabulous wardrobe got-to. It is 90cm (almost 3ft) square, a good size for tying in many styles. It is finished with hand-rolled and hand-stitched edges, and it arrives in a smart sleeve for presentation.
