I admit it: I love a good snood. Always have. But this week: maybe it's the weather right here, right now, but short of a giant poly sleeping bag, I can't think of a more covetable fashion item than the Burberry Giant Check Snood (shown here, from net-a-porter: yours for a mere £195).
Now, girls, I know what you're thinking: why can't I just do the same thing with a large scarf and some clever use of a needle and thread? It's kinda what I'm thinking (and I've got just the right moth eaten Burberry check scarf to play around with), altho I might well discover there's a reason. But somehow, this shape has really captured our collective imagination lately. Maybe it's simply the word: so Audrey Hepburn with Ray Bans. So little vintage MG rounding a sharp corner on the Riviera. What I want to know is, would a snood by any other name smell quite as sweet?
