Silk scarves come and go with seasonal fashion trends, but this historically chic accessory remains a timeless piece, reminiscent of mid-century glamour and 1960s Bohemia. French women, known for their effortlessly sophisticated sense of style, also recognize the silk scarf as a wardrobe staple, regardless of what the season’s runway shows have prescribed for accessory do’s and don’ts. The best aspect of wearing a silk scarf is that you can style it in a variety of different ways. Whether tied around the neck, worn as a head wrap, or decoratively tied to your handbag, the silk scarf versatility leaves it standing high above the frivolousness of fashion trend cycles. This is one neck accessory that will always look chic and put together.
This Etro Paisley Printed Silk Blend Scarf embodies the scarf’s versatile appeal, while exuding a sense of retro sensibility. Crafted with a silk and linen blend made in Italy, the fabric feels as nice on the skin as it looks. And while wearing bohemian prints like floral and paisley present the risk of looking age-inappropriate and dated altogether, Etro’s refined designs blend paisley’s whimsical spirit with modern luxury, resulting in a luxurious look that is youthful yet sophisticated. When it comes to paisley, no other designer gets it better than Etro. The Italian design house has become notorious for its love of paisley, so much so that it has become a part of the label’s signature.
Paisley dates back to 17th century Persia, but became a popular textile print in the West in the 18th century due to an increase in imports from East India. The unique print usually depicts a quasi-floral droplet-shaped motif that flows evenly, creating a swirling effect. This print grew to become immensely popular in the West for centuries to come.
Paisley saw a major resurgence in 1960s psychedelia and was a major wardrobe staple in both rock and roll subculture as well as to Hollywood actresses and the European elite. Etro’s dedication and ongoing love affair with paisley makes the label the trusted go-to for chic paisley pieces that will make a beautiful addition to any outfit. This silk scarf beautifully revives this pattern’s rich and cultured past, and timeless aesthetic.
