The new Spring/Summer 2016 range from FRAAS – The Scarf Company renders current fashion trends in a unique way giving each and every one of our accessories that special FRAAS look. Versatile double-layer scarves in exclusive materials take turns with exquisite, hand-printed silk materials and ingenious patchwork styles. Burnouts and laser cuts play an important role.
The golden glow of dry desert sands, cacti silhouetted against the rugged landscape. Covered wagons drawn by mighty horses, romantic country music, the air shimmering in the heat. The proud life of Gaucho Girls in the American West is characterized by traditional designs and natural materials with great attention to detail. This has inspired us to create scarves that express a romantic spirit seeking to break out towards new horizons. Delicate cotton-modal blends with traditional and hand-painted paisley patterns, exquisite silk with watercolor prints and artful laser cuts, jacquards with ornamental prints in muted colors, and burnouts with a rustic, stonewashed denim look arouse feelings of hanging out at the ranch with the Gaucho Girls, following the urge for freedom and adventure and enjoying the wild beauty of life.
Stranded on a desert island in the South Pacific we gaze upon the fluctuating light on the deep blue sea. Endless beaches, green palms with ripe coconuts and brightly colored parrots gracefully gliding through the air. This dream of a virgin tropical paradise with its exotic flora and fauna has inspired us to create pictorial designs on light, airy cotton-linen blends, printed silk scarves with silhouettes of palm fronds and hand-painted flowers in brilliant colors. Extravagant cotton-silk blends with opaque textures and diaphanous burnouts vie with washed out blossoms on Egyptian cotton. Soft blends of viscose rayon and silk with labor-intensive screen prints in bold colors imitate the surface of the water and the gentle play of waves with picturesque brush strokes. Let us take you in a dream to this romantic place and be enchanted by its simple luxuriousness!
Scarves are our passion, our history and our heritage. Multifarious, exciting styles and 135 years of tradition characterize our house and our designs. Come with us on a journey into the past. To a time when the streets were filled with horse-drawn carriages and men in top hats and the hand-loom weaver Valentin Fraas began making scarves. Be enchanted by the calligraphic designs and sumptuous jacquards inspired by antique business correspondence and sample books, refined with labor-intensive handcuts. Ingenious double-layer scarves made of diaphanous silk-cotton blends and lightweight linen materials with humorously charming prints will impress you with their wearing comfort. Enjoy a bit of modern tradition.
