April Foulards

The weather can’t seem to decide what season it is. That twice a year closet changeover is turning into an every-two-months rotation, ‘innit?

As you clean and store the cozy cashmere and moth-proof the mohair (surely we won’t need those again this year…will we?), you might still want to have a few scarves around, just in case.

I always keep a few silk pashminas out for early spring (not those horrid polyester scraps the stores label “pashminas”, by the way). The full-size shawls are handy when trenches can be tossed aside, but you still need a little cover, or worn knotted over your trench for additional warmth (because you just can’t go back to that dreaded winter coat when a windchill returns).

As the temperature rises and you (gasp!) switch to your un-lined trench, a colourful vintage silk scarf adds a je ne sais quoi and whisper-thin wind-proofing to boot.

Then, there are those random summer-in-spring days, where you can de-layer but want a little something to cover up, if only for stylish pursuits.

These foulards by Philippe Dubuc are sure to do the trick.

This would be perfect over a linen kurta - on both men and women.

Don’t let this weather fool you, it’s best to be prepared – and primped.

…And no, this is not an April Fool.

I am back.

Fashion and I are working through our separation.

There’s many years of love that I’m not willing to let go of…
