Mona Sultan is my recent local discovery, and is such a great one. This Vancouver-based designer launched her eponymous scarf collection last spring, and it’s now in its third season. Spring 2013 is big, bold, and beautiful. Sultan grew up in Syria, and educated in France. As a graphic designer, she understands composition and colour extremely well. Her seamstress mother taught her all about fabrics, so this scarf collection is a nice marriage of the two disciplines. 

What I truly love about them, beyond their gorgeous colours and graphics, is their 44” x 71.5” size — so many possibilities. 
$175 at MonaSultan.com. Also available at One of a Few and Charlie & Lee in Vancouver.
