Q A

Are silk scarves hav­ing a mo­ment?

The Weekend Australian - Magazine - - Fashion -

Yes, though there is more to this trend than meets the eye. Beyond wear­ing scarves around necks and heads, scarf shapes and prints have in­fil­trated ev­ery­thing from jack­ets to skirts and dresses. At the last Fall shows, de­sign­ers in­clud­ing Richard Quinn, Mar­tine Serre and Faus­tine Stein­metz of­fered tops, dresses and skirts that ap­peared to be stitched, spliced and knot­ted from mul­ti­ple scarves. To adopt the trend, look for prints that take their lead from scarves, say with solid bor­ders around flo­ral prints: Zara’s shirt­dress (zara.com.au), Preen Line’s asym­met­ric midi dress (net-a-porter.com), Rianna Nina’s belted jack­ets, Diane Von Fursten­berg’s hal­ter dress, Burberry’s pan­elled blouse and Ba­len­ci­aga’s twist-front dress (match­es­fash­ion.com). Gucci, mean­while, rein­ter­prets its fa­mous Flora print in this en­sem­ble (pic­tured, jacket $2095, pants $1580, gucci.com). Oth­er­wise, just tie one on.
