For some inexplicable reason, Western woman have largely stopped wearing the classic silk scarf.
And it's a shame because scarves used to hold such an important place in fashion.
In "Scarves" a new book out from Thames & Hudson, Nicky Albrechtsen and Fola Solanke give a visual history of the accessory. With over 257 illustrations, the book shows the many different creative interpretations of the scarf, from art to advertising campaigns.
From a design point of view, these scarves prove that art can be evident in what you put on your head as much as what you choose to hang above your mantle.
The range of color and pattern are inspirational for simply framing as wall art or inspiring a wallpaper design. Like the scarves' patterns themselves, the possibilities are endless.
Perhaps this book will ignite a scarf trend that revitalizes an age-old closet staple.
