Wearable Art: Toulouse-Lautrec Silk Scarves

  • Print

Ever since it was released in 2001, I've been a huge fan of the film Moulin Rouge! and its depiction of the vibrant, colorful world of the famous French cabaret.

One of the characters depicted in the film is real-life artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, whose paintings captured various aspects of the Moulin Rouge, from its can-can dancers to the top hot-wearing patrons.

I'm a fan of these paintings, and my favorite one lives at the Art Institute of Chicago, a place I visited regularly when I was in graduate school.

When visiting Old Town Lansing's Grace Boutique a month or so ago, I noticed this silk scarf with one of Toulouse-Lautrec's paintings as the design. I immediately fell in love with the colors and whimsy of this wearable art.

Today it is adding a pop to my outfit, pulling together the navy, red, and white.

You might still be able to find one of these scarves at Grace Boutique in Old Town. If not, a quick Google search helped me find this one from The Met Store in New York City, and this one from TravelSmith.
