Helen with Yellow Turban


An exciting extension of Kinfolk’s ethos of fostering community and celebrating the many talents of our collaborators, The Kinfolk Artwork Series consists of three limited edition prints selected by the Kinfolk team.

Printed in Denmark on premium paper, each artwork is limited to a run of 250. The artworks are sold unframed.

Helen with Yellow Turban is an original image created by the Italian photographer Danilo Scarpati. It emerged from an encounter between the photographer and Helen Nonini—a Milanese brand consultant who Scarpati photographed for an editorial profile in Kinfolk Issue Twenty-Eight. Nonini’s personal style centers on her wearing of turbans, which she has handmade by the iconic Milanese milliner Altalen. The burnt tones and high, oversized headwear of Helen with Yellow Turban draws this distinctly modern fashion image into a longer history of classical portraiture—from the Dutch Golden Age, the Italian Renaissance and beyond.

Danilo Scarpati studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Naples, and launched his career as a photographer’s assistant in New York City before returning to Italy to make his name as an editorial photographer for Kinfolk as well as publications including British Vogue, Dazed & Confused, Vanity Fair and W magazines. His personal work has been exhibited in several shows in the United States and in Europe.
