We’ve all seen the glowing fingerprints of cities after dark: Manhattan as an orderly grid, London a sprawling mess bisected by the winding Thames, the ring of Paris’s arrondissements. The patterns are recognisable but abstract, just right on a silk scarf that lets you subtly broadcast your city allegiances.
The new collection, “Cities by Night”, from Slow Factory is inspired by NASA images taken from satellites and the International Space Station. You have your choice of New York, London and Paris — no doubt our most romanticised cities — as well as the continental US printed on an Italian silk scarf. Even if you aren’t a partisan of any of these places, the satellites images are lovely glowing on a scarf. [Slow Factory via Colossal]
