Vintage Scarves

The scarf is possibly the most versatile fashion piece with a deep-rooted history and diverse cultural significance spanning ancient Egyptians, Croatian, Chinese and French cultures – to name a few.

In the West, the scarf was considered a fashion accessory by the early 19th century and embraced by both men and women. It was at this time Hermès with their signature graphic print silk scarf and Burberry, maker of the timeless plaid scarf, were born. In the early 1900s, icons of popular culture such as dancer Isadora Duncan popularised the long flowing scarf; and by the 1930s fur scarves were amongst the top fashions in France. In the 1970s, the scarf was worn in more imaginative ways – most notably around the forehead – and in later years celebrities and style influencers have revisited the silk scarf, playfully tying it around the handles of their designer tote bags.

With square, triangular or rectangular being the most common shapes, scarves can be tied in many ways including the pussy-cat bow, the square knot, the cowboy bib, the ascot knot, the loop, the necktie, and the gypsy kerchief. Whether you have a pattern-specific penchant or simply fancy a warming wrap, the designer scarf offering is constantly evolving and brands often take a narrative design approach, referencing the scarf’s wide-spanning cultural heritage. Amongst the most iconic established and new classic designer scarves are Alexander McQueen’s scull scarf; Louis Vuitton’s square monogram scarf; Missoni’s crochet-knitted zig-zag stoles; and Hermès vast repertoire of vintage printed silk scarves.
