Scarves tells the story of this perrenial accessory, with color images of beautiful scarves throughout history and from luxury houses such as Gucci, Liberty and Hermès. These accompany essays that document the history of the scarf from its humble origins in the Roman military to Beau Brummell, haute couture and the advent of ready-to-wear.
Other sections illustrate the contributions of makers and personalities in scarf design over the past century such as Elsa Schiaparelli, Sonia Delaunay, Pierre Cardin, Pierre Balmain, Tamara de Lempicka, Versace and Vivienne Westwood, as well as commentary from the houses of Missoni and Ferragamo.
Still other sections depict historical photographs and paintings of the technological process of scarf-making over history from the Kashmir region to the creation of the jacquard loom, with particular focus on the influence of the Italian Como region, home to numerous revered scarf and silk manufacturers.
