Danish designer Peter Jensen's artful all-in-one scarf and gloves keeps necks cozy and hand-warming mittens always at arm's length. Known for his eccentric, conceptual runway collections, the high function idea makes for a classically witty Jensen accessory.

Like his 2007 scarf-hat combo—a scarf attached to a hat boasting bear ears—in this updated edition Jensen keeps his wit slightly more subtle. The scarf and mitten marriage is indeed one of the tamer accessories from the designer, considering past collections as well as a spring 2010 show featuring handbags shaped like watermelons and sunglasses playing up his widely-circulated bunny graphic. The latter (pictured below) were created as props, but we wouldn't be surprised if Jensen's upcoming sunglasses collection continued to play with what has become his irreverent icon.

Not one to shy away from controversy, the designer's current collection's nod to the traditional attire of Greenland caused death threats. Jensen's idiosyncratic take on fashion—from how he configures the basic scarf to his artistic runway staging—feels refreshing in a luxury-obsessed industry that's seen it all.

Available in green, blue and grey, the scarf can be purchased from Far Fetched for $126.
