Netherlands-base designer Nina Führer blurs the line between figurative art and functional fashion with her eye-catching animal scarves. Featuring fauna plucked from the pages of a storybook, these charming accessories are a whimsical way to spruce up your winter wardrobe.
Führer’s fanciful scarf collection stars an enchanting cast of characters, from foxes and badgers to cats and cockatoos. Whether inspired by a wild woodland creature or reminiscent of a beloved pet, each animal scarf will happily perch on your shoulders, serving as both a cozy accessory and a charming sidekick.
Given the uniqueness of their designs, it is no surprise that these scarves were inspired by a range of sources. “The inspiration for my work comes from the fables I heard when I was a child, but also from wildlife and modern art,” Führer notes on her website. “My knitted accessories are in part figurative or sculptural, but wearable and functional as well.”
If you’d like to wrap yourself up in one of Führer creations, you can pick up a scarf on Etsy. If you’re feeling crafty, however, you can also download a pattern and knit one yourself. Either way, you’re sure to live happily ever after with your new fairytale friend.
