TYING UP: Designer Dianora Salviati has reworked an assortment of vintage Carré silk scarves to give them a contrasting texture and a contemporary edge. Selfridges was the first to pick up the 300-piece limited edition collection, which includes repurposed Carré’s Hermés, Gucci and Celine ones from the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies.) In a strange twist of serendipity, the designer discovered a few Carré scarves from the Sixties imprinted with the Salviati family coat of arms and those too were updated.

Salviati said, “I envisioned this project as a way to reinvent the classic Carré, bringing back with it a sense of excitement and giving it a new life and touch of modernity.”
