Meet The $4.8 Million Scarf That Makes Hermès Look Like Cheesecloth

Henri Matisse’s $4.8 Million Oceanie, La Mer Scarf

First there was Princess Beatrice’s $131k Royal Wedding Hat, then there was the multi-million dollar Marilyn Monroe dress, now, there’s the nearly $5 million dollar scarf. This scarf isn’t notable, however, because of whom it belonged to, rather it’s famous because of its designer: renowned artistic master, Henri Matisse. According to Vogue UK, the Ascher scarf (which is apparently supposed to be used as a wall panel) was auctioned at Christie’s London for such a high value because it is an original from the 30-piece limited run.

Well, that puts it in perspective: that Missoni scarf I’ve been eying now looks a whole lot more affordable.
