Belt Co. Suzi Roher Launches Scarves

suzi roher scarvesToronto–Suzi Roher, who has had her eponymous belt company for 25 years, has branched out into new territory: scarves.

The line, which includes 30 scarves per collection, includes original photographs taken by Roher’s husband (below), as well as vintage prints (left).

“We travel a lot and go to all the world art events. This is like food for the creative juices,” says Suzi Roher about her decision to branch out into a new area of accessories, especially one with such a visual element. “My husband is a photographer and between the two of us, it is the best use of our combined talent. Plus, making scarves and belts together is a natural as we are ‘accessorizing’ every outfit.”

Materials range from airy, breathable silks for summer to cashmere for winter. Scarves are 145 cm square, or 57″‘ x 57″. Retails range from $220 to $305.

So far the scarves are sold at stores like Frances Kahn, Intermix, Lucca, Jophiel, Vie, Gus Meyer and lots of better specialty stores all over North America.
