The collection of 5-CORNER SCARVES is a tribute to scarf designer Vera Neumann, who took a square scarf and cut an opening from one corner to the center, creating five corners. The simple slit offers the wearer great opportunities to drape and wrap the otherwise square textile piece in a variety of ways, fueled by their imagination. Ms. Neumann's exhibition Vera Paints a Scarf was at the Museum of Art and Design (New York City) August 8-January 26, 2020.
The lyrical diagonal lines of the STRIPES OF HAPPINESS SCARF originated from a stack of pleated silk Accordion BonBons prior to being emerged into the dyebath. The textured weave of the layered silks create an uneven color pallet that moves from neutral tones to muted brights. The scarf has a casual quality that nods to everyday street wear, yet printed on silk chiffon it takes on an elegant tome that is timeless.
