Check out these brand-new Otrera Evil Eye and Hamsa scarves by designer Elle Sakellis—inspired by graffiti and New York City, they're the perfect accessory for warding off the evil eye... especially when you're sitting front row at fashion week. Sakellis grew up in New York, the daughter of Greek immigrants.

"I remember walking and holding my mother's hand and observing all the people, cars, lights, and especially graffiti on the walls," she said. "The artwork drew me in—it was another form of energy exuded by the city I loved."

Her first collection of Evil Eye scarves launched in 2008, debuting at stores including Intermix, Kitson, Fred Segal, Henri Bendel, Harvey Nichols, and Barneys. Sakellis plans on expanding her collection to include ready-to-wear.
