Next up in my accessories collection is my WOOL AND SILK BLEND GUCCI FABLE PRINT SCARF. It was a piece included in the Fall/Winter 2008 collection that Frida Giannini largely referenced Russian Folklore. The show was full of billowy tops and suede tassels, with some tapestry added for good measure. This particular scarf features a snowy outdoor scene of prowling tigers, wide eyed owls, and smoking bunny rabbits dressed in fashionable clothing. It is tobacco, I assume.
At roughly 54 inches by 54 inches, it's rather large and I usually fold it in half before casually draping it around my neck. I sometimes wear this scarf with a blazer, but it works well with just about all my jackets. The lively print easily adds color and texture to my outfits whilst providing some warmth. I use the scarf all year round and always take it with me when I travel. Airplane cabins tend to get a bit chilly, but that's no reason for style to suffer. Now, this fine scarf was a little more on the expensive side in terms of neckwear, but it truly was one of those pieces that caught my eye and I fell in Love. I invested because it's a special piece that I'm glad to have a part of my collection. And because well, I liked the bunnies!
