At this autumn/winter’s London Fashion Week, one name emerged supreme – Richard Quinn; designer du jour and bona fide advocate of scarf print. Not only did Quinn’s scarf print adorn handkerchief-hem dresses and flared trousers, silk scarves were tied under model’s necks (an homage to the OG Royal post The Crown binge, perhaps?) and covered the face in a less-guerrilla style way than the other headgear of the season – the balaclava. Other titans of the industry including Salvatore Ferragamo and Versace all followed suit. A beginner’s guide to scarf print? All-over print on a maxi or midi dress – easy as humble pie.
Vintage stores are a great way to find an amazing silk scarf or scarf-printed shirt – I’ve dropped several amazing finds into Siopaella over the years and totally regretted it – seller’s remorse is worse than buyer’s remorse, don’t you know! Dabble in the trend by tying a silk scarf around your new a la Audrey or Jackie O, test the waters with a printed silk scarf print shirt worn with Mom jeans and and ankle boots or dive headfirst into the trend with an all-over scarf print – co-ords or a maxi dress are an easy option.
