The themes of the Zazou Fall 2013 Collection have been briefly mentioned in previous posts. To refresh your memory, the three pillars of Zazou include LuminosityTexture and Warmth.

When creating these three standards, designer Christopher Carroll had very specific messages in mind. He wanted to convey the attributes of Zazou scarves and fingerless gloves that stand out the most and that mean the most to the customers that enjoy the products.

Many pieces in the Fall line are luminous in the way that the sequins, glitter or pure sheen of the fabric reflect the light. Some of the accessories, including the Japanese Deco scarf, are magically reflective and pure, and it all stems from the illuminating qualities of the jacquard fabric.

Zazou masterpieces are also rich in their texture as well, meaning that one accessory can not only dazzle your eyes, but your sense of touch as well. Two of the most texturally interesting pieces include the Floating Thread Wrap scarf and the Angel Hair scarf. The two items are made of silk with either thread of a different solid color or metallic color intricately weaved throughout the design. It was made sure in the creation process, however, that the silk part of the scarf was the section that touched your delicate skin, and the other, more textured threads created a type of plumage on the outer section of the scarf so as not to irritate the wearer’s collarbone and neck area.

Lastly, one of the most basic, utilitarian purposes of a scarf or glove is to keep its owner warm and safe from the elements, Luckily for the stylish women of 2013, Zazou scarves keep them toasty, while maintaining chic designs and vibrant prints and patterns. Some of the warmest pieces come from the collection of knits designs by Carroll. One such comfy creation is that of Lattice Knit Scarf, which is available in green. black and plum grey. These deeper hues personify the the earthy warmth that these knit pieces provide. Additionally, most of the knits are adorned with decorative fringe in varying lengths, adding personality to each cozy wrap.

Which theme from the Zazou 2013 Fall collection will you boast this upcoming season, or will you indulge in all three?

This 1205 Casablanca Scarf was named after the 1942 film, and it is just as much a classic as the Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman film.

Whereas most scarves are thick and chunkier to protect the wearer from the elements, this 1210 Morning Glory Scarf is thin, broad and delicate. It maintains the ombre effect, as light blue at the top becomes dark blue, then finally turns into a soft green.

This piece from the Zazou Fall 2013 Collection wholesales for a mere $14 and is 20″ by 70″ slub rayon with combed fringe (the fringe is microscopic in comparison to the dipped knit scarf!). The lovely wrap comes in three different colors: sage (shown), sand and blue.

In a galaxy far, far away, there was a spectacular scarf company known as Zazou.

Zazou was smart to invest in scarves, because everyone, may they be a spaceship pilot or a Jedi warrior, needs to stay warm, and a scarf is the perfect accessory to do just that.

As you may have guessed, this most recent addition of “Scarf Stars”  focuses on the one, the only, “Star Wars.”

In 1980, the second “Star Wars” film was made by George Lucas. It was “Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back,” and one of the settings within its famous plot is that of the icy planet Hoth, in which white snow constantly falls from the sky and blankets the ground below.

While traveling in Hoth, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford) must brace the cold by wrapping themselves in thick coats, goggles, caps and scarves.

In the end, however, even the warmth of their thick scarves and clothes cannot shield them from the snowy tundra. All that can save Luke in the end is the cozy, albeit gruesome, innards of his Tauntaun. Desperate times call for desperate measures, as they say.

Later in the film, in the warmer comforts of the Millennium Falcon, Solo dons another scarf, which keeps his hot head attached to his neck as he screams at the ever-startled C-3PO (Anthony Daniels).
