    Imagine the secret notebook of a spunky and curious girl. A real precocious wunderkind (Hi, Tavi!) whose loose-leaf papers are the stuff of whimsical, far-away dreams, alive with color and escape. That's what we can't help but think of when we see Charlotte Linton's creations, and also, her frame-worthy sketches.

    Inspired by her imaginary muse, Ermantrude, who just happens to be a "zoologist traveling around the world in the earlier part of the 20th century" (We know, right?), Linton's bright, eclectic concoctions are a patchwork of influences and oddities. Her three collections of scarves, titled Java, Himalayas, and Madagascar, feature visuals that would make the hearts of archaeology, anthropology, and biology lovers sing. Birds, fish, fauna, arrows, shells, minerals, faded postcards, and maps are just a few prints in the bunch. And we've already begun imagining all of them mingling inside our closets. Realized in beautifully rich color palettes, it might feel as if you're wearing the vivid pages of National Geographic around your neck. The line of scarves and clothing, called Zoologist, will be exclusively available at Anthropologie stores in the UK, US, and online. Click through to pick out your favorite.

There are the ones you’ve owned for years and years, the one you’ve only recently picked up thanks to ‘90s nostalgia, and the collection you’ve thrifted, inherited, and/or pretty much stole from your S.O. (or ex-S.O.). But, in there read
