The definitive collection of twentieth-century scarves, now in an attractive, compact package.

Indispensable accessories and sought-after collectors’ items, scarves were an important innovation in twentieth-century fashion. From art deco through 1950s Hollywood, the Swinging Sixties and beyond, scarves have been represented in every major decorative arts movement over the past century and into the present one.

This marvelously illustrated compendium showcases the work of a wide range of international designers: Paul Poiret, Elsa Schiaparelli, Balenciaga, Mary Quant, Gucci, Christian Lacroix, Yves Saint Laurent, Zandra Rhodes, Nicole Miller, and many more. The collection showcases more than 250 scarves, beautifully reproduced in color and all specially photographed. Scarves also includes concise biographies of more than fifty scarf designers, information on retailers and manufacturers, and even a resource guide that provides expert advice on conservation, museum collections, vintage fairs, and specialist dealers.

Nicky Albrechtsen is the proprietor of the Vintage Labels resource studio, London, which provides costumes and props to the theater and media.

Fola Solanke is a costume designer for film and television historical dramas.
