The Product: Vintage Venice map on a luxury silk scarf
We’re smitten with both versions of this vintage, Venice map print scarf, available in either blue and mauve or blue and red. The scarf depicts the Grand Canal and the intricate streets and alleys of this famous Italian city. Textile designer Helen Chatterton re-colours vintage maps to create elegant, intensely-hued and tactile fashion accessories celebrating cities both across Europe and farther afield. This particular map scarf features watery blue hues to represent the iconic canals of the ‘floating’ city.
These beautiful, silk twill scarves are digitally printed in the north of England and come with machine-rolled hems.
How to style your Venice map print scarf?
An elegant, silk scarf ups the ante with any Spring/Summer get-up, whether dress-down country-casual or smart urban apparel. Go regal, turn it triangular, cover your hair and tie it under the chin. Go boho, bandana style and tie at the nape of the neck. Or, go city chic and dress just your neck/mac. Whatever way you style it, the charm of a silken map invites question and curiosity.
