In the Galaxy of Fashion there are two kinds of scarves: One, the mass-produced, status-printed silks that will always say more about the conglomerate of issue than personal style. The other, scarves that are hand made and hand printed. Future classics made in small batches. Look to Linea Germania for the latter.

 In the hands of designer Mengly Germania Hernandez, the look is a global cocktail inspired by favorite haunts on the LES, in Camden and the Marais as well as origami and Wabi Sabi - the celebration of the perfectly imperfect. Her original prints are silk-screened, hand painted and hand stamped onto whisper weight gauze, ultra-soft cottons and silk. And because there is a world beyond the Infinity Scarf, many styles are large enough to drape in myriad ways. Tie one on serape-style, as a hip wrap, a short sarong, a head wrap, or a belted halter.
