Dreyden for The Paris Review

For this scarf, Dreyden drew inspiration from The Paris Review’s covers from the 1960s. In its second decade the Review freshened up the original cover template with an eye-catching identity that expressed the magazine’s revolutionary spirit: away went the standardized grid layout, the Pène du Bois eagle logo, the serif type and wordmark, and in came a fresh breath of punchy colors and sans serif typography, set alongside a quarterly, movable pièce de résistance: the cover as a rotating canvas for showcasing bold new European art. 

The Fall 1968 cover, featuring an abstract painting by Geneviève Claisse, offered intense geometric shapes in lime, purple, and black. Half a century later, Claisse’s color polyphony continues to reverberate, as it leaps from the cover onto wool cashmere to animate this limited-edition scarf. In 1968, an issue cost a mere $1.25, 6 shillings, or 5 francs—details that run along the edge of this elegant multiseason piece.

All proceeds go the The Paris Review Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
