Oltrarno

Every town has 'the other side of the tracks.' This image - discovered on a late night stroll on the far side of the river Arno in Florence - was our gift for venturing off the beaten path.

We love the refined and graceful color palette it carries, despite hiding some seriously cool graffiti in its folds. We love the thought of something sophisticated enough for a boardroom secretly having so much soul - like a business woman sporting a full-sleeve tattoo under her suit jacket.

Our scarves measure 48" x 48" and are made from a carefully chosen blend of 30% silk and 70% modal, making them ethereal, wispy, and softer than these pictures can portray.

Keep on scrolling for lots of styling inspiration and the story behind the photo.

The bulk of Florence’s must-see sites are clustered in the Old Town north of the Arno. Most visitors rarely cross the river, beyond the requisite stroll across the Ponte Vecchio. Some trek on a few blocks to the Pitti Palace, then scoot back across the bridge to continue feasting on Florence’s bounty.

It’s a pity. Just to the north and west of Pitti lies the beating heart of the Santo Spiritu Oltrarno neighborhood (“other side of the Arno”) - a couple of dozen blocks that, some say, still belongs to the Florentines.

Stroll into the night past shops, studios, bars and restaurants spilling their warm light onto cobbled streets. Slow down. Take the time to to absorb it: the graffiti … locals visiting in the street … a craftsman absorbed in his work … that shockingly well-laden bar of snacks to complement your regional wine or spritz con aperol.

Then sit on the steps of the chiesa, and laugh out loud. Give thanks, and let the lively piazza absorb you.
