As you may have noticed, I have a recent fascination with silk scarves such as the Hermès and Louis Vuitton ones I previously shared, which have come into style again. I recently read a wonderful new book called "Scarves" by Nicky Albrechtsen and Fola Solanke which gives a visual history of scarves. The book contains over 257 illustrations that show different interpretations of the scarf. The book contains designs by Christian Lacroix, Nicole Miller, Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga and more. This book would make a perfect gift for any woman loves beautiful things, one does not have to like fashion to enjoy this book. The scarves shown above were designed by Yves Saint Laurent, Tannus Jeefe, an unknown designer, and Balenciaga.
