Designer Bradley L. Bowers' COSMOS Collection consists of a set of silk scarves with fascinating designs. For those wondering what type of mind it would take to come up with such adventurous patterns, it would help to learn that the patterns aren't the result of a creative mind at all. Rather, the scarves are designed by generative algorithms, making the scarves a combination of art, fashion, and technology.

According to Bowers, the COSMOS Collection is "inspired by planetary orbits and interstellar space," with designs that "blur the boundaries of color, line, pattern, and form." There are five scarves in the collection: Orbit, Flora, Nova, Nebula, and Aura. These patterns and color schemes are templates for the completely unique scarf that Bowers generates from scratch for each order. However, they are all made from 100-percent natural charmeuse silk.
