Paige Russell of Austin, Texas, designed this Le Grande Zombi Scarf by cutting and arranging pieces of colorful construction paper into shapes of celebratory dancers, like a modern-day Matisse. Her inspiration? The festive spirit of NOLA and the work of folk artist William Hawkins. An image of a snake refers to 19th-century voodoo queen Marie Laveau’s pet serpent, a central symbol in the city’s Creole tradition. You’ll find the silk accessory at the recently opened Ace Hotel New Orleans, also available on their website. ($112)
