Now Available! Limited-Edition Girl Scout Scarf and Wristlet Designed by Diane von Furstenberg

Girl Scouts has a long history of collaborating with fashion designers. To name a few, Mainbocher, a popular haute couture American label in the 1950s, designed a loose-fitting dress uniform. Bill Blass, a member of the Fashion Hall of Fame, designed the 1980s Girl Scout look! And New York-based hat designer Miss Emmé created our adjustable green berets. Accessories have always been a big part of official Girl Scout looks. Now in 2020, we’re honored to collaborate with fashion designer and philanthropist Diane von Furstenberg on a limited-edition scarf and wristlet. In the new scarf, Diane applies her bold approach to color and prints to Girl Scouts’ timeless trefoil.

We might be a little biased when it comes to the new scarf and wristlet, so we decided to ask three Girl Scout alums what they thought about the scarf and the collaboration with Diane von Furstenberg. Here’s what they said:
  • “Every time we put on clothing or accessories, we send a message to the world. Clothing enhances our inner strength and makes us feel great about ourselves! The DVF scarf for Girl Scouts is truly special! Can’t wait to wear it!” —Sarah, Girl Scout alum and troop leader
  • “What makes the scarf special for me is its unique design. I love DVF’s creative interpretation of the iconic trefoil. This is the kind of piece that will last decades…It’s timeless and elegant! It’s the perfect accessory or a conversation starter!” —Kayla, Girl Scout alum

  • “Diane von Furstenberg was inducted into the National Women’s Hall of Fame in September 2019 for her leadership and achievements. She believes that ‘to empower a girl is to empower the woman she will become…InCharge.’ I’m inspired by her message and appreciate that Diane donated her design to Girl Scouts!” —Jackie, Girl Scout alum and troop leader

Don’t miss your chance to own these unique items! They’re a limited edition because they’ll be available in limited quantities for 2020. The assortment will be sold on the Girl Scout Shop starting March 3; the scarf retails for $150 and is 100% silk twill, and the wristlet retails for $45 and is cotton canvas.
