Fornasetti Scarves Get A New Life At Moss
Moss, New York's store for fashionable and quirky design, has always had a good supply of Fornasetti products. Now Murray Moss has worked with Barnaba, the son of Piero Fornasetti to bring back three silk scarves from the Fornasetti archives. The three designs are ones which were designed and produced in the 1950s. 'Arlecchino' and 'Acrobati' are long thin scarves printed on a silk chiffon and sell for $198 each while 'Times' shown above is printed on a silk twill and sells for $595. The production is described as "very limited." With newspapers disappearing at a rapid rate, the image of wildflowers wrapped up in newsprint seems both very retro and oddly comforting.
