The Silk Scarf – Timeless and Universal
The scarf… its simplicity is the key to its versatility. Practical and chic, worn in a myriad of styles, its appeal is enduring and universal.
The silk square has allowed designers and artists to express all that is current and meaningful at any point in history. Over the decades, scarf designs have documented the themes, patterns and innovations of the day, cities and memorable destinations, events to be commemorated and more recently the brands to be recognized and coveted.
If not designer and if not silk, then cotton, acetate and polyester fabrics have allowed women, regardless of budget, to update their look with this simple accessory. Hermès, expert creators of equestrian and leather goods introduced the silk square to their noble repertoire in 1937. Iconicized by Hollywood stars and royalty, silk scarves were to be elevated to the exclusive levels of the couture houses.

Vintage – Recycling with Style
The link between vintage clothing and the environment is simple. The more we re-use the less we throw away. Better still, the more we re-use the less of the earth’s resources are squandered in the manufacture of new items.
With growing ecological awareness, there is no better time for vintage and pre-loved garments to form part of everyone’s wardrobe.
