A Golden Age Luminous Blue Silk Satin Limone Scarf
The warm tones and possibility to feature different parts of this moody floral print inspired by the Dutch Golden Age make this scarf multifunctional. You can wear the large floral part of the scarf as a statement accessory or only show off the blue satin finish on the front to keep it classy.
A warm spotlight is cast over a bursting bouquet of chrysanthemums, tulips, anemones, hyacinths and apple blossoms. This is an ode to nature at the peak of its splendor and beauty, and to the moment when a life achieves its best expression. The flowers symbolize a sense of wonder and gratitude for the brief, and best, of times that we have.
Ultimately, in my mind, the Old Masters were choreographers, or conductors, of beauty, wonder and splendor. They took what was there and heightened it, each in his own hand, to an enhanced - and celebratory - version of reality. So, while their works depicted a beauty that was based on nature - even on the intense study of nature - the great paradox is that the beauty and the moment that they captured would never have existed in reality. In this way, these still lives are a sleight of hand, a magic trick, allowing us to indulge in - and believe in - a beauty that never was.
So in the end, for me, these flowers are symbols of our intense longing, desire, and aspiration towards beauty. Thinking about how I might apply my own hand to this subject matter, it occurred to me that I might want to do this with more softness, applying less clinical precision, and revealing more emotional vulnerability.
