I ♥ Vera Neumann
|"Vera" scarves @ Target!|
Vera Neumann has been one of my favorite artists and designers since I was a kid. Her designs were super popular in the '60's. Between us, my Mom and I have about a dozen "Vera" scarves. My buddy, Beth knew of my obsession with this designer, so a few years ago she collected a beautiful selection of Vera's designs for me on eBay and gave them to me for my birthday.
I'm still obsessed with Vera's designs. Imagine my delight when I heard that Target and Vera Neumann Designs were re-issuing many of her scarves! I zoomed over to my local Target and scooped up some of these luscious art pieces. I love them all!
All of the scarves are either very large squares or rectangular shaped pieces. Some are chiffon-like and flowing, others are linen-like.
The display at Target was less than appealing, which is good. There wasn't a mad rush for these scarves like there was a few years ago for the Missoni-Target collection. Also, the people that remember Vera skew a bit older than the Missoni fans...thank goodness! I was very happy that I did not have to fight hordes of westside fashionistas at my Mid-City Target for this booty!
Look out, birthday buddies for these DIVINE works of art included in your gift-bags this year!
