Higgs Boson particle becomes fashion inspiration

While the fashion and science worlds are becoming friendlier (think Christopher Kane’s stellar prints, cool fashion-focused technology and innovative new materials,) particle physics does not generally spring to mind as a trend setter.

But amidst the Higgsteria, stylish particle physicists and science fans can show their support and mark a major scientific milestone with a new silk scarf, inspired by – you’ve guessed it – the elusive Higgs Boson particle. We love it when science and fashion collide.
