The first time I laid eyes on a Centinelle scarf was at Convert in San Francisco’s Hayes Valley. I was like, TELL ME MORE about this designer, because kitties being beamed into spaceships are things that I need in my life and around my neck. Also glutton seagulls, animal paddle boats and punky donkey unicorns—knowing they existed, I wanted them.
I knew my BFF Robyn in Brooklyn would be as obsessed as I was with Centinelle’s quirky designs, so I bought one for each of us (she was). In a crazy coincidence, six months or so later, Centinelle’s founder Cristina Guizar got in touch to collaborate on a post, with the premise being one scarf for myself, and one for my bestie. I was like, been there, done that!
So this time I gifted one to my little. In other words, I gave them both to myself until Frida is responsible enough to not destroy this gorgeous silk scarf. Because while the designs are quirky, the quality is top notch. She had fun with the scarf for this photo shoot, but I promptly placed it high on a shelf until she’s 16 😀
And that’s the beauty of these scarves. They’re so good, you immediately imagine handing them down through generations who will be like, OMG, grandma had the best taste.
