i saw this scarf at eva gentry and asked them how it would look as a skirt and a top. they put it on a mannequin and sent me these photos and i was sold. there are 16 different woodblocks used for this particular piece. The artisans first carve out the motifs on a woodblock and then engineer the placements into this composition. The trim is embroidered, and then handsewn to close the back so there are no topstitches.

i think its something special, hope you do too.

^ Lovely! And even more so to have something made using such an old artisanal method ...

Lucky, indeed the scarf is something special, it looks spectacular as a top. I can imagine u wearing it that way with some black pants, among other ways...

Enjoy it!

lucky - gorgeous scarf! I love it's versatility, color, print - and to top it off, it's construction. Great buy!

Dries is really good this season. I love all the tops Eva Gentry has. I can't wait to try on some pieces.

lucky, the scarf is gorgeous! i've been agonizing over it myself, perhaps you have saved me the trouble and it's sold out i like it as a scarf best.

mona, i agree, all the tops at eva gentry are gorgeous. i really love the tunic and the canary tuck top especially (i'm afraid to know the price of the canary tuck top). this is definitely a good season for Dries, clothes for women, not girls!

OMG, you guys are so sweet . I'm happy my eyes werent the only ones blinding by Dries' accolades this season. I love that their is a story behind every thread of fabric he chose and of course never a reason to quip about the handwork he puts into each piece.

fortunately the scarf is huge and i will be able to find many ways to incorporate it into many outfits, it will be the focal point at times and others a dash of artisan splash.

i love that canary tuck top too tourist, its a statement piece. cant wait to see what else evagentry gets next for dries since ann d is so disappointing this season (except the shoes ;-). interesting though when i was at barneys early in the year they had the worst DVN selection of this season and i was convinced it would be hard to find anything i wanted, so it just goes to show that you need a keen eye for a well edited selection more so than buying just to fill the racks. There are some real misses out there but the gems will go fast...i hope to see more posted of this season by you guys soon.

^ I can see how this season will be hit or miss, depending on the buy. I'm curious to know if Eva Gentry to will up more of the prints, which are amazing.

love the print of this scarf:


and the print on this is gorgeous as well:

credits for both, http://www.mattotti.co.jp

one thing though, because of all the beading and stitching, it seems like a lot of pieces are a bit out of reach for me, in terms of price (though I still feel they are worth it). i'm hoping to pick up a scarf from this collection, although the beaded scarfs are quite expensive as well!
