Little Carré Manifesto
At Petitjean Paris, we believe that carrés scarves are very personal pieces with their own stories. Either worn in a classical style or twisted, they are always the elegant touch to complete your outfit.
Our first carré scarf, the Pas De Deux, unveils a ballet of wild foxes in the frosty forest of Jura. A tribute to the designer’s region of origin, it keeps a subtle balance between a delicate print and a striking color palette.
The Art of Carrés
The colorful prints and noble silk luster of our carrés scarves give any silhouette a refined touch. Around your neck, your head, or even your bag handle, there are plenty of ways to wear it : there can be no limit to your creativity.
The Origin of Carrés
The French tradition of silk square scarves, "carrés", dates back to the 19th century. The handkerchief was then a stapple of the female fashion and as the male wardrobe adopted it, it also enlarged it to a neck square handkerchief, thus creating the carré.
After many evolutions, it came back into feminine fashion at the beginning of the 20th century and since then, it has never ceased to reinvent itself with many prints and many dimensions.
