In thing: Georgina von Etzdorf scarves

For vampires and neck fetishists a Georgina von Etzdorf scarf is the ultimate in luxury neck wear. Her fine crepe Volare tulip print scarf has been much sought after by the likes of David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Isabella Rossellini and Miranda Richardson. Other creations include yards of brilliant fuchsia silk, dreamy silver and aquamarine devore velvets and classic silk squares. A new shop brimming with goodies has just opened on three floors in the Burlington Arcade. On the first, her magnificent scarves lie neatly and invitingly in small shallow drawers - waiting to be rumpled, wrapped and taken away.

Silk squares pounds 29, long chiffon scarves pounds 85, chiffon satin-stripe long scarves pounds 105.

Georgina von Etzdorf's shop is at 50 Burlington Arcade W1 (071-409 7789). Mon-Sat 9am-6pm/Thurs 9am-7pm.
