Founded in New York City in Febuary of 2012, Votary is a unique brand that creates premium American knitted, over-sized scarves and blankets. After losing his job as an Attorney, Luigi Bianco embarked on a journey to try something completely different. Luigi hopped on a plane and embarked on a journey to Europe where he found work at the bottom of the totem pole of the fashion industry. Harnessing the knowledge in which he had gained, Luigi launched the label Votary and turned his dream into reality. Soft, warm and hypoallergenic, Votary scarves are some of the coolest independently designed scarves I’ve seen. Knitted from top to bottom with bold American flag designs, Votary scarves and blankets are quite engaging.
Votary was founded in New York City in February 2012 with a desire to innovate an oft overlooked – but nonetheless defining – element of one’s personal style: the scarf. Votary firmly believes in making a lasting first impression and we thus regard what is at eye level and used as a means to layer as of the utmost importance – be it scarves, cardigans or jackets. With that philosophy, Votary’s inaugural collection seeks to inject well-constructed, smartly designed style into your life whether on the street or in your home (as translated by our blankets). From the garish to the traditional, Votary’s pieces will always seek to reinterpret classic styling and blend it with the highest quality, utilitarian construction. The line is at once premium but also democratic in its approach and strives to produce pieces that reinvent the standard for premium, yet accessible, personal style.
