To Mom, With Love - The Prettiest Silk ScarvesMay 4, 2020
Celebrate the wonderful mothers and special women in your life with a gift she’ll adore — a signature silk scarf that is as beautiful and unique as she is. Our luxurious silk scarves are not only a gorgeous accessory but a chic statement piece that are each carefully designed to be loved forever.
Johnny Was has long been known for our bold signature scarves, but it’s seeing how you style them that’s truly been an inspiration for us—everything from a timeless neck accessory to a casual poolside cover-up knotted at the hips. Every month, our Senior Design Director, Amy Valentine creates a gorgeous array of silk prints that add a shot of elegant whimsy to every look we create. “I love to work with colors and create unique prints and my aesthetic is definitely all about vacation,” she says.
More recently, during these shelter-at-home times, we’ve noticed these lightweight beauties are perfect as a chic “can’t-get-to-the-salon” cover for unwanted roots or unruly bangs. So we’ve taken inspiration from the classics—Brigitte Bardot from the 1963 classic film, Contempt, where she sports a forehead scarf as close as possible to the hairline—as well as Bianca Jagger in a chic ‘70s turban style that she knotted up on her wedding day to Mick Jagger—to show just how versatile these silk pieces truly are.
Another easy and effective option if you’re out and about is to use one of our Johnny Was scarves as a mask to cover your nose and mouth. While we have our non-medical grade masks that we started producing recently, in a pinch, one of our scarves is a great way to take cover if you don’t have a regular mask at the ready. To show you how, we created this video with our Senior Designer, Lola, doing an easy how-to.
We want to wish you all a lovely Mother’s Day and in celebration of all the wonderful mothers and women around the world, we’re offering 50% off on each and every one of signature silk scarves. Useful and beautiful now and later.
