Triton Lepides Scarf 2018


Triton’s Lepides

Lepides_Collage1

 Triton (/ˈtraɪtən/; Greek: Τρίτων Tritōn) is a mythological Greek god, the messenger of the sea. He is the son of Poseidon and Amphitrite, god and goddess of the sea respectively, and is herald for his father. He is usually represented as a merman with his lower body cover in Lepides or animal scales.
A playful scarf like Lepides. This scarf is meant to be done without having to block it much. It is one in my series of attire for men, but it is unisex with a timeless look. It has a wonderful flow that will allow you to embrace the divine spark within you and wear it with pride.
