Scarves

Indispensable accessories and sought-after collectors’ items, scarves were an important innovation in twentieth-century fashion. From art deco through 1950s Hollywood, the Swinging Sixties and beyond, scarves have been represented in every major decorative arts movement over the past century and into the present one.

This marvelously illustrated compendium showcases the work of a wide range of international designers: Paul Poiret, Elsa Schiaparelli, Balenciaga, Mary Quant, Gucci, Christian Lacroix, Yves Saint Laurent, Zandra Rhodes, Nicole Miller, and many more. The collection showcases more than 250 scarves, beautifully reproduced in color and all specially photographed. Scarves also includes concise biographies of more than fifty scarf designers, information on retailers and manufacturers, and even a resource guide that provides expert advice on conservation, museum collections, vintage fairs, and specialist dealers.

257 color illustrations. Harcover, 304 pages.
