Versatility is treasured in travel clothing — and the luscious new 100 percent silk scarves from Cityzen by Azin are textile jewels. Digitally printed in vibrant hues chosen to represent the dynamic pulse of the place for which it is named (Bangkok, London, Los Angeles, Chicago, among them), the expansive scarves can be used as elegant shawls over evening wear; draped, twisted and tied as exotic dresses, skirts or blouses; or wrapped for beach cover-up or bathrobe duty. The scarves come in two sizes, a 42-inch by 72-inch rectangle, or a 42-inch square. They are all gorgeous, but I’m partial to the brilliant yellow, blue, red and black splatter of the rectangular Los Angeles Scarf and the verdant forest of greens spanning the square Dhaka Scarf, with its river-like veins of deep purple-blue and wisps of magenta. The look is limited only by your imagination, with maybe a little practice.
Cityzen by Azin 42-inch by 72-inch silk scarf is $350; 42-inch-square scarf, $250, at www.cityzenbyazin.com.
