Silk Scarf Trend AW18
Never in one season have we seen so many silk scarves.
Richard Quinn, blowing up prints on silks to form bombastic handkerchief-hem dresses and securing models' fly-aways with headscarves tied under the chin.
Marine Serre followed suit in Paris, having stockpiled silk scarves over a series of months to allow for an upcycled production system, whereby orders for her brilliant collection of patchwork scarf dresses and skirts can continue to be fulfilled sustainably.
Faustine Steinmetz, another Parisienne now claimed by London, did something similar, though she pumped her final look, a Nineties scarf top, with hundreds of Swarovski crystals. It’s a trend that’s been bubbling under the surface for a few seasons, with Vetements and Balenciaga its biggest proponents, but this season looks to go front page.
