Designer Nadine Geopfert has revolutionised the classic neck scarf with a conceptual twist. The ‘Breaks In Continuity’ collection showcases a series of geometrically-designed scarves that enable the wearer to play with various styles and experiment with accessorising different areas of the body.

Unlike design specific garments such as jackets or trousers, the Berlin-based textile designer claims there is no exact way to wear the scarf and has opened an array of potential styling opportunities for the modern woman.

By investigating the multiple ways of draping the scarf around the neck, Geopfert’s collection is able to mimic the body with a conventional twist.

“Based on the simplicity of its form, the scarf itself makes the wearer develop specific habits, sometimes indicating social conventions. It makes us speculate about the personality of the wearer, maybe more than any other garment.” Nadine Geopfert
