Hermes enamel bracelets

It has been a long time since my last post, I know. Now I have finally time to share with you some pictures of my latest passion – Hermes enamel bracelets! The Hermes enamel bracelet is an iconic jewelry in the fashion world and you can often see celebrities wearing them. The bracelets are elegant, timeless, and instantly make a statement. The enamel bracelets come in three different thicknesses. Narrow, wide and extra wide. Since I have a small wrist, I decided to go for the narrow model called Hermes Clic H. Hermes has been producing the enamel bracelets in very many years, releasing each season some new colors. The…

Parures de Samurais by Aline Honore

The Parures de Samurais was designed by the famous Aline Honore for the house of Hermes. Pelages et Camouflage, Au Coeur de la Vie, Cent Plis des Miao are some of the designs created by this talented designer. Aline Honore’s designs are always very popular and I will not be surprised if even Parures de Samurais will get the grail status in the future. As described on the website of Hermes, the Parures de Samurais design was inspired by the samurai warriors of medieval Japan who had richly ornamented armour. Fourteen such elements from the 14th to the 18th century can be found in this composition designed by Aline Honore. At…

Etude pour un Iris Arc-en-ciel by Benoit Pierre Emery

This time it did not take me long to choose my favorite scarf from the Hermes Spring/Summer 2017 collection. The moment I saw the lovely Etude pour un Iris Arc-en-ciel I knew it had to be mine. The vibrant and cheerful colors of cw nr 13 (red/pink/turquoise) are just perfect for Spring. Also, I am a colorful person and, in some way, these colors describe my personality and character. I feel very comfortable wearing this scarf. Etude pour un Iris Arc-en-ciel was designed by Benoit Pierre Emery. It depicts three irises and a peony, coming together in a delicate combination. In Greek mythology, Iris is the personification…

La Comedie Italienne by Philippe Ledoux

La Comedie Italienne by Philippe Ledoux has always been one of the most sought-after designs for me. It is a very rare scarf from Hermes and is considered being grail by many scarf collectors. The scarf is made of beautiful jacquard silk with a pretty guitar pattern, a material which is rarely used by Hermes. It was first issued in 1962 and reissued in 1993. The details of La Comedie Italienne are very rich but at the same time very feminine and delicate, depicting the scenes from Commedia dell’arte, a type of comedie developed in 16th and 17thcentury in Italy. La Comedie Italienne is available in two different…

The Autumn Looks

Autumn is a dark and rainy season in Sweden. In those rare moments, when the weather gets better one realize how exceptionally beautiful the Swedish nature is with its bright colors and warm shades. The beautiful Swedish nature is also a great source of inspiration for me when it comes to choice of colors for my outfits. Autumn is also an excellent opportunity to wear elegant hats, cosy cashmere sweaters and colorful coats.  The outfits below were inspired by the beauty of the Swedish Autumn with grey, blue, khaki, black, beige, yellow and brown as dominant colors. I hope you enjoy the looks.  Have a cosy Autumn weekend everyone!

Chemins de Corail by Annie Faivre

I am very happy to share some pictures of my new Hermes scarf Chemins de Corail from the Fall/Winter 2016 collection. The scarf was designed by Annie Faivre and translates from French as “Coral Paths”. The Chemins de Corail scarf is absolutely adorable in bright orange, emerald and golden yellow colors (Hermes reference number H002207S 15). Even though this scarf comes from the Fall/Winter collection, in my view it can be worn any season of the year. According to www.hermes.com when working with this design Annie Faivre was inspired by her childhood memories from Africa, which is known for its beautiful, diverse coral reefs. Corals are the…

Even though I do not wear neutral colors often, the design and the color way were too pretty to resist. Wearing Hermes Zenobie, Reine de Palmyre as pony tail holder. Neutrals are an important part of any woman’s closet since they are always appropriate. Wearing neutrals is also the easiest way to look elegant without looking overdressed.

Summer look

One of the things I like most about Sweden is it’s powerful nature. In summer the landscapes are lush green, the nights are light. In the northern part of Sweden, not far away from where I live, the sun never sets. Swedes love nature and to spend their time outside. And it is not surprising, since more than half of the country is covered by forests and lakes. The looks below were inspired by the summer landscapes of Sweden, when green, brown, yellow and white are predominant colors. The lovely colors of my Hermes Bride de Cour scarf matches perfectly with the beautiful colors of the Swedish…

It is hard to find a scarf which would be as versatile as an Hermes Maxi Twilly! The generous size of it, beautiful colors and designs make this scarf a must in any fashionista’s wardrobe. I own three Maxi Twillies – two in the Brazil design (a classic black/khaki/gold one and a bright red/purple/green one) and the third one in the Brides de Gala design in duck/navy/steel grey – and I simply love all of  them. Maxi Twilly is a very special scarf, which is extremely easy to use and absolutely gorgeous. There is such a great variety of ways to wear it – as a headband, as a stylish…

My Italian Look

Italy has long been one of my family’s favorite travel destinations and there are several reasons for that. It is such a beautiful country with wonderfully kind people. Whenever we visit Italy we feel welcome and at home. Italy is a great food destination, where every dish seems to be made with time and passion. Italy is also a great style destination. In a country where police uniforms are designed by the famous Armani brand, one shall not be surprised that the art of dressing is taken very seriously. Unfortunately this year my family will not be able to travel to Italy. That…

This week has been a lot about purple color. As I have already told my Instagram friends, I received a wonderful gift from a friend of mine in Norway – a nail polish in Mauve Naif by Yves Saint Laurent. This shade nr 16 has been sold out in Sweden since a long time and I was so incredibly happy to receive it as a gift. I will be wearing this nail polish with pleasure and think about my beautiful friend Ilona, who was so kind to find this beautiful shade for me! I was surprised to discover how well this nail polish matched with some of my Hermes scarves. On…

Hermes Cannes et Pommeaux by Françoise de la Perriere

On June 6 was the National Day of Sweden, which is one of the holidays Swedes like to celebrate the most. Many festivities were arranged that day around the country including festivals, music and folk dance. Since yellow and blue are the colors of the Swedish flag, that day I wanted my outfit to match the national colors. As you remember, I have already a stunning blue/golden yellow/mauve Hermes Cheval Surprise Remix by Dimitri Rybaltchenko. To my great pleasure, Hermes had some other scarves in the yellow and blue. This time my choice fell on two lovely 70 cm scarves Cannes et Pommeaux designed by Francoise de la…

The latest addition to my growing collection of Hermes accessories is the sweet Collections Imperiales bow tie.

Yesterday was the Mother’s Day in Sweden. Normally we do not celebrate this holiday in our family but this time we made a small exception. My husband and children surprised me with a small unexpected present – a perfume Une Rose by Frederic Malle. If you are looking for a true fragrance of roses, you definitely need to try Une Rose. When I wear this fragrance I feel as if I am walking around in a beautiful rose garden after a rain when the ground underneath is still damp. The roses are very realistic, tender, delicate with the drops of rain on the leaves. The fragrance composition includes the notes…

This season it took some time for me to decide which Hermes scarf to choose, since there were so many beautiful designs presented. Finally, I fell for Cheval Surprise Remix in blue, golden yellow and mauve designed by Dimitri Rybaltchenko. When I tried this scarf on, it made my face light up with delight. I simply loved how the blue and mauve shades of the scarf were in harmony with my hair and skin tone.

Muguet Porcelaine is the latest addition to the Hermessence family. It is a luminous, green, floral fragrance with a very true scent of the lily of the valley flower.  I own two other lily of the valley fragrances: Diorissimo from Dior and Lily of the Valley from Penhaligon’s. None of these fragrances is that close to the real scent of the lilies of the valley than Muguet Porcelaine. The fragrance is subtle, elegant, feminine and fresh. Muguet Porcelaine…

You can also make the headband without using a scarf ring. In step 3 simply twist the ends of the scarf on top of your head and…

How to wear a Hermes scarf on your head‏‏

The lovely spring days are just around the corner and it is time to pack away your winter hats and try an alternative way of styling for your head. A scarf in this sense has a number of advantages: it keeps your head warm, it is a fashionable, beautiful and feminine accessory, and, last, it protects your hair from the harmful UV-rays. The styling options presented below do not require an ultra-fashionable scarf. Even a less expensive option can be tied beautifully. I am lucky to have a small collection of Hermes scarves and on the pictures below I used one of them, Monsieur et Madame…

La Legende Du Poisson Corail is one of my first Hermes scarves and one of my most loved ones. I received the scarf as a…

Easter decorations

In our family we like to celebrate Easter. This holiday is the time for getting together with our relatives and closest friends. We are not a religious family, but Easter for us represent the end of winter, which can be very long in Sweden.    The main Easter tradition in Sweden is to decorate the birch twigs with brightly colored feathers. This year I decorated the twigs with feathers and porcelain eggs from the well-known Danish brand Royal Copenhagen.   Painted eggs are a must-have at Easter in Sweden. My son, 4 years old, looked very much forward to helping me with…
