Gorgeous silk scarf by artist Julia Abadie for the 2001 Hermes Fall/Winter collection. The scarf is titled "Trophees De Venise" or "Trophies of Venice" and showcases some of Venice's finest cultural landmarks. At the very center of the scarf are the Cavalli di San Marco, Saint Mark's Horses, also known as the Triumphal Quadriga. The four magnificent horses lay surrounded by floral and geometric tiles and mosaics (including two peacocks!) that can be found in the Piazza di San Marco, Saint Mark's Plaza. The upper right corner of the scarf depicts the Saint Mark's Basilica, complete with the plaza birds soaring overhead. The basilica, with its numerous Byzantine domes and spires, opulent mosaics, carvings, and overall luxurious design, has been popularly known in Italy since the 11th century as the Chiesa d'Oro, or the Church of Gold. The upper left corner of the scarf depicts a Venetian waterway, with its romantic gondolas and steep bridges. This piece is a gorgeous and intricate testament to the beauty of Venice and the intricacy of the Hermes scarf.

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.
