I love these drawings meant to recreate the look of early 20th century cartoon sketches to show off new collection of scarves I will never be able to afford.

“I sent my mum an old 1940s Dick Whittington comic and said something like, ‘Think old cartoon sketches you would see in Punch Magazine,’” says the designer Louisa Parris about the instruction she gave her mother, Cherrill Parris-Fox, when the two decided to bring Parris’s debut collection of scarves and hats to life with a series of fashion illustrations. The result: witty and heartwarming pencil drawings portraying distinguished women draped and decorated in Pariss’s striped silk kerchiefs."  (From the NYTimes article.)
