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!
Textile Designer and Artist, Vera Neumann

Thanks for the heads up. I may run over to the downtown Target on my lunch to see what I can find.
