Blondell Scarves by SuTurno

by Grace Bonney

Every now and then I come across something I become totally, completely and instantaneously obsessed with. Like, obsessed. I haven’t had that feeling in a while, but it came rushing back to me yesterday when I saw these stunning scarves by SuTurno mentioned on Caitlin Mociun’s Tumblr page (via Gretchen Jones’ page). Inspired by 30s glamour, this collection of nail and lip-patterned scarves are a throw-back to the explosion of lipstick sales after the Wall Street Crash of 1929. A relatively inexpensive way to cheer themselves up, women began buying lipstick more frequently after the crash and apparently that trend is repeating these days during our current economic struggles. I didn’t know about those sales trends at all, but they’re such an interesting commentary on what people find important or splurge-worthy during tough times- and they’re definitely interesting inspiration for a series of decadent silk scarves.
