Your Wear-Everything Piece

I subscribe to, a website and email newsletter that offers shoppers tempting deals on brands from Gucci and Missoni to smaller indie handbag, jewelry and clothing lines. The other day I spied a deal on Leigh and Luca scarves. Leigh and Luca are Australian-born entrepreneur Gillian Leigh and European designer Susann Luca, and their scarves are hand-woven on antique looms and made out of silks, cottons and cashmeres.

But you don’t have to go through a website to buy them (ideeli is invitation-only and their sales are limited-time) Leigh and Luca is sold locally, believe it or not, at Gatherings on Regent Street. Owner Terry Hoard sells the exquisite purple/orange flocked cotton scarf shown in the image. It’s no doubt a statement piece and you’d be able to wear it year-round. It retails for $165.

Gatherings, 2134 Regent St. 236-9497.
