Need (another) reason to be glad it’s almost summer in Australia?
Meet the vulva scarf.
And no, that’s not a typo.
From the brand who brought us the ‘Monster Slip-On‘, (for the bargain basement price of approximately $1500… gimme three pairs) come the scarf that resembles a vulva. Because who doesn’t want to recreate their moment of birth while keeping the chill at bay?
A touch of… vulva
Designed by Italian fashion house Fendi, the ‘vulva scarf’ – actual name ‘The Touch of Fur shawl‘ – is all about blush pink tones, silk draping and yes, a touch of fur. That may be all well and good but all we’re seeing is, well, a giant vulva. With a very neat circle of pubic hair.

And we’re not the only ones. ‘Fendi’s $1000 shawl looks like a BIG VAGINA‘ screams the headline from The Huffington Post. Twitter has gone into meltdown too.
990 bucks to look like a vag 🤦🏼♀️

Is there a woman (or person) alive who wants to walk around with a hairy vagina scarf around their neck? https://t.co/dp4oSaBZtB

And while they may not be anatomically correct (it’s a vulva, please), they’re right on the mark.
While we’d love to believe it’s an early Halloween ‘trick’, it seems the scarf is legit. And it’ll only set you back about $1300. It’s NOICE, different… UNUSUAL even. And get this – it’s already SOLD OUT online. At least, the vulva shawl has vanished from the Fendi website. But don’t worry, you can still get the ‘Brazilian’ version.
When too much vagina is never enough
It’s not the first time that we’ve seen the humble vagina up in (fashion) lights, so to speak. Who can forget vagina nails? Or Etsy best seller, the vagina necklace? Want to clad yourself head to foot in vageen? The options are there and they’re endless.
Personally, we’ll keep our thousand buckaroos for something else. We hear talk of a boobrella (which gives new meaning to the word ‘support’ by helping raise funds for breast cancer awareness charity CoppaFeel). Now that’s something we can get behind.
Vagina nail art not really your thing? Check out this super cool ultrasound nail art which we think is a much better option.
