These plush, luxurious scarf is ideal all year around. It makes the perfect accessory during winter and fall, dressing up any ensemble instantly. Even the warmest summers and springs have cooler evenings and air conditioning can go from refreshing to arctic in no time, which is why we’re never without one of these versatile wraps.
Handmade in Florence by traditional Italian artisans, it's equal parts hippie and haute, a classic combination that never fails to please. This one-of-a-kind item is stitched together from carefully chosen hides, and drapes in such a flattering way that we find ourselves looking for excuses to wear it.
Mellina & Company was started by Melanie Guardino, a New Yorker who fell in love with Florence—can you blame her?—when she was studying there. Determined to make this spectacular city her home, she moved there after graduating from FIT last year and set up her company with the aim of providing her customers with accessories that fit what she calls their “changing yet spectacular” lives. “Our consumer is educated, and is always looking to stand out and be unique,” she says. With this around her shoulders, that’s a shawl bet.
