Natural Silk-Chiffon Long scarf, Tirana Classic Match from our exclusive Tirana Style collection, was designed by Triqita from our photo of the building that you see in the picture.

The color palette chosen for decoration of the building turned into classic concordance of colors for our Tirana Classic Match scarf.

The pattern of the exquisite silk scarf Tirana Classic Match, we designed from a photo of the abstract painting on one of the buildings in Tirana - the capital of Albania. Tirana sounds very feminine, and Tirana looks like a woman, who is more extravagant than elegant, more naïve than experienced, more unpredictable than reliable, and more chaotic than organized. Yet, Tirana looks as a woman with her own style.
Tirana, as a city, doesn't have and never had any architectural wonders, but Tirana has a very artistic "make up". It was invented by Tirana's former mayor and new prime minister, Edi Rama, who is also an artist.
He commissioned himself and some other artists, including Olafur Eliasson of Denmark,
to create the colorful decoration for Tirana's dilapidated, dull, concrete and brick apartment buildings.
This is why and how the walls of many Tirana's buildings became the canvas for Tirana Biennale-2003 and how Tirana became the biggest-in-the-world free-of-charge outdoor exhibition of abstract expressionism. These bright abstract painted Tirana buildings, each looking as a piece of contemporary art - ugly, funny, ironic, and fascinating - don’t leave anyone indifferent.
Triqita wasn't an exception. Triqita began to photograph the Tirana painted buildings and reorganize the images in such a way that “it changes the way we look at the things around us”, as wrote one of the visitors of our exhibition in the National Gallery of Arts, Tirana in September-October 2005. Triqita converted Tirana's chaotic charm into harmonious decorative patterns for Tirana Style collection of silk ties and scarves. This is how Triqita has created the new fashion, confirming what Coco Chanel once said, “Fashion is architecture: it is a matter of proportion”.
Painting on the buildings of Tirana became not just a fashion, but a style. Both old out-of-fashion buildings and most of the new buildings of Tirana have their colorful dressings. Will the fading colors on the old Tirana buildings be repainted? Time will show. But we, Triqita, took care to preserve this page of Tirana’s history in our photos of each of Tirana’s painted buildings, and in the patterns for silk ties and scarves of our unique Tirana Style Collection.
Tirana is “dressed” in art, and it makes her unforgettable, so whether you put on or give away as a gift the scarf Tirana Classic Matchfrom Triqita’s For Travel Lovers/Tirana Style collection, you will be dressed in art, or presenting art, and along with all the quality and the story coming with it, you will also be unforgettable. The Classic Match silk scarf is not just a designer scarf, but the stylish, modern, useful, exquisite and meaningful gift.
