From the tightly wound kerchief to the oversized wraparound, nothing transforms an outfit (or hides a bad hair day) quite like a scarf. Two vividly printed renditions that recently came on the scene will keep you tied up all season:
Lauran Vitonahu's African-inspired silk scarves combine traditional symbols and patterns with a beautiful, color-saturated palette. Launched last month, this fashion newcomer has an elegant sensibility reminiscent of another L.V. we love but with more wallet-friendly prices. (Scarves are an affordable $99 each). Look out for a warmer, silk-twill collection next month.
Beloved for high-quality leather handbags that get better with time, Brooklyn-based Hayden Harnett is now exploring fashion from the neck up with bespoke scarves. Simply upload your image--a vacation photo, a snapshot of your dog--onto its website, choose your size and fabric (sheer silk chiffon or a more opaque, sand-washed silk) and a one-of-a-kind creation will be on your doorstep within three weeks ($110 to $198).
