This cotton scarf by Gucci is simply divine! Bold, warm oranges and yellow flowers pop against a deep brown background, encircled by a red and white (oh Gucci!) border. The bold color palette paired with the Pop - Art print style of the flowers is astounding, and brings to mind Andy Warhol's brilliant "Flowers" series.
A spectacular scarf that would be suitable hung up on a wall, wrapped around your shoulders, or worn as a dress while you stroll down South Beach.
Rare 1994 Rage against the Machine wall flag scarf featuring a large graphic of Che Guevara. The scarf is primarily black with white and yellow screenprint graphics. The piece depicts Che Guevara in Alberto Korda's iconic "Guerrillero Heroico" photograph. The photograph was taken on March 5, 1960, in Havana, Cuba. Guevara was attending a memorial service for the victims of the La Coubre French munitions freighter explosion.
The scarf is from the RATM 1994 tour, where they performed their titular debut album (the cover of which depicts the 1963 self - immolation of Vietnamese Buddhist monk Thích Quảng Đức in Saigon, performed in protest of President Ngô Đình Diệm's persecution of Buddhists,) and treated the audience to a preview of their 1996 album "Evil Empire."
Playful Popeye - themed silk scarf by Moschino! The scarf is primarily robin's egg blue, with light green dots, a narrow border of collaged floral print, and a whimsical collection of illustrations of Olive Oyl! Alternating between standing, strolling, and sometimes skipping, Olive Oyl features thirteen separate times on the scarf, with each figure wearing a different, whimsically printed outfit. Moschino truly delivers with this fun scarf for chic fans!
Although we now know her best from "Popeye The Sailor Man," Olive Oyl first appeared in 1919, and was the main character of E.C. Segar's "Thimble Theatre." It wasn't until 1929 that Popeye, her love interest, was introduced. He was wildly popular, eventually earning his own spinoff franchise in the 1950s. Despite being introduced decades ago, the characters have remained popular in the United States and abroad; Olive Oyl celebrated her 100th birthday in 2019.
This massive scarf depicts the famous Arizona Biltmore Hotel - the "Jewel of the Desert" in Phoenix's "Valley of the Sun" - with fabulous mid century flair!
The Arizona Biltmore Hotel opened in 1929, and was a favorite with Hollywood stars and affluent snowbirds looking to retreat and relax. The complex was designed by Prarie School architect Albert Chase McArthur, with Frank Lloyd Wright acting as a consultant. Although somewhat removed from the construction, Wright's work can be seen through out the hotel, including in the "Wright Sprites" in the garden, and in the "Saguaro Stained Glass" art piece in the lobby.
The hotel and its surroundings are at the center of the scarf, framed in a circle. The famous "Catalina Pool," known for being Marylin Monroe's favorite place to sunbathe, as well as being site where Irving Berlin wrote many of his classic songs, including "White Christmas," is visible in the middle right of the scarf. The corners of the scarf feature illustrations advertising the various activities available at the resort, including golf, tennis, shooting sports, and horse riding. The color palette of green, orange, red, white, and beige masterfully carve out space, with each color appearing crisp and bold.
Frequent guests to the Arizona Biltmore include: Sammy Davis Jr, Clark Gable, Carole Lombard, Martha Raye, Ronald and Nancy Reagan, Frank Sinatra, Joey Bishop.
Bonus: The hotel is the birthplace of the "Tequila Sunrise."
