I probably spend too much time thinking about the uniformity of my closet hangers. I realized that this minor detail was really bothering me the minute I saw the handmade linen hanger covers at the Arts & Science store in Galerie Vivienne in Paris. So simple, so genius; problem solved.

Above: Using a rustic but soft woven linen fabric sourced from Japan, the covers slip over the hangers (even wire dry cleaner’s wire hangers look good with this treatment).

Above: From the spring collection, a printed silk scarf is wrapped around one hanger and stands out from the others.
