2009 Weave of the week #40: My scarves @ Saks Fifth Avenue

This season’s shameless commerce post:  Above and below are photos of the seven-piece 2009 men’s scarf collection that I designed exclusively for Saks Fifth Avenue.  The collection is made up of a new rib weave in three rich solid colors,  and updated color combinations of my herringbone  stripe and pinstripe designs (click on the images to enlarge).

All scarves  are 100% plush rayon chenille and cost $195.00.  My designs are individually handwoven in the USA,  so the quality is impeccable,  and their carbon footprint is teensy-weensy.  Each scarf is 9″ wide x 72″ long — my most popular size for both men and women — plus a short cut fringe (see photo at top of post).

My collection is available,  under the Fern Devlin label,  in the men’s scarf department,  at these Saks Fifth Avenue stores:

Beachwood,  OH

Chevy Chase,  MD

Chicago,  IL

Hackensack,  NJ

Las Vegas,  NV

New Orleans,  LA

New York,  NY

The weather has turned autumnal and the stock market is up,  so please support domestic American handweavers  (and at least one American designer) and buy my scarves.  They will warm your soul as well as your neck — really.  And you’ll look good in them,  too.

Allsorts stripe cinnamon

I’ve been hearing non-stop how bad this retail season is (you probably have, too, unless you’re on a polar expedition or something), and indeed, I found  signs  everywhere in Saks Fifth Avenue’s New York store that  say, “Take 50% off the ticket price.”  One of those signs sits on top of a display of (ahem!) my scarves.  So, to quote retail analyst Marshal Cohen, ask yourself, “When am I going to get a deal like this again?”  Then go to Saks’ 6th floor and check my scarves out.

They still cost about $100 each, but  they are meticulously handwoven in the USA out of  luxurious, velvety rayon chenille, the 9″x 72″ size fits all, and the designs are exclusive to Saks New York.  (Support your local handweaver, please!)

Thanks and happy holidays.

Speaking of autumn (were we speaking of autumn?) — if you’re interested, some of the (warm, cuddly, elegant!) rayon chenille scarves from my fall collection are now available at Saks in NYC, in the men’s scarf department on the sixth floor. Pictured above is one of the five colors this Chevron Stripe pattern comes in, and  some of the other colors are shown on my Gallery page. Saks also has my  Allsorts Stripe (shown in some previous posts) in navy, licorice, chocolate, and cinnamon (there’s a photo of the cinnamon on the Gallery page).

The portion of my Fall 2008 collection currently available at Saks consists of four styles, each in several colors, all designed by me and handwoven in the USA.  If you’re in NYC, stop by Saks men’s scarf department and see them all.
