About the product
A limited edition multicoloured silk-jacquard scarf designed by Chloé and British artist Jenny Saville, exclusively for House of Voltaire. The delicately embroidered piece, in fleshy tones of peach and pink, takes its inspiration from Saville’s studio, where the artist keeps test swatches of canvas used to test her brushes and mix her paints.
