The scarf is one of the most simple but effective accessories. Being, essentially, a rectangular cut of wool or fabric, you’d think that there’s very little room for development. But that's where you're wrong.

Down scarves represent a new age of insulating neckwear. If you thought that wrapping a woolen scarf around your neck was a pleasure, wait until you graduate to the big leagues: we’re talking goose-down fillings to see you through fall and winter.

From luxury collaborations like 7 Moncler and Fragment Design through to the stalwarts of outdoor performance, The North Face, a strong and varied collection of designers have tried their hand at the down scarf. This selection accounts for all of them, so whether you’re out to make a visual mark, or to top up your hiking gear, keep scrolling.
