A scarf can add much more than just that little extra warmth. Especially Pleato with its easy-to-wear sciencefiction aesthetic quality, soft curvy fringe and metallic sheen. Drape the garment around the neck, the chest or the waist, or play with it to create your own personal look. Light is reflected in a shimmer of gold, bronze and silver, depending on the colour chosen. Marianne Abelsson already has a long history of experimenting with pleated fabrics in lamp shades as well as fashion accessories. Her award-winning PLEECE collection, developed in close collaboration with the MoMA store, focused on the winter season. With Pleato Scarves Marianne presents a year-round, versatile fashion garment that can be worn in all seasons.
“I’ve worked with pleating for ages; now I wanted a shimmering effect in a thinner, more lightweight fabric with an overlocked hem, which will allow for a wider variety of uses.” The Pleato Scarf is made of rayon and polyester, and retains its characteristic pleating after washing.
