Depicting a different moment of the early life of Achilles in each panel, this scarf takes its design from a decorative scheme for a grand house in Paris by Charles-Louis Clérisseau, now housed in the V&A’s Europe galleries. It was the first French Neoclassical interior to feature ‘grotesques’. It includes vases, medallions and friezes framed by a symmetrical structure. Clérisseau studied in Rome and recorded many ancient monuments. His work influenced the Neoclassical style. A detailed scarf that is highly versatile due to its off-white base colour and incredible detail.
