Weird though it may be, we actually think this scarf and gloves combo by eccentric designer, Peter Jensen, is sort of genius. Think about it – it keeps your neck covered and your hands warm, and you’ll never lose a glove. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Jensen’s work, he’s known for his oddball creativity; his collections have featured imitations of Greenland’s traditional clothing, handbags shaped like huge watermelons, and most recently, perhaps in a nod to Mary Kate and Ashley’s fashion forward headgear, bunny ear sunglasses.
I think Jensen may have stolen that bag from my mom at the beach circa 1990, but if it puts you in the mood to prep for next summer now, we prefer fruit tones to actual fruit on our handbags. Try this slightly more elegant Tory Burch tote, and for somewhat more wearable statement headgear, take a look at Marc Jacobs’ giant “Runway” bow headband.
