Essential accessory, the scarf is from the beginning of the 20th century an essential place in the wardrobe of the modern woman. After being in the middle of the last century, a style icon, he is back today - a renewed interest which is not unrelated to the craze for vintage fashion.

This book presents more than 250 creations due to artists, textile designers and the great names of fashion such as Paul Poiret and Raoul Dufy, Jacqmar, Vera, Elsa Schiaparelli, Mary Quant, Gucci, Hermes and Georgina von Etzdorf. It provides an analysis of the role of this accessory in a context of social history, and particularly in the field of advertising and tourism. Rich source of inspiration for the creators and lovers of fashion, scarves and squares of silk is also a very valuable reference book for collectors. He reveals in splendid manner the creative richness of a fashion item that is other than a genuine artistic medium.
