Jardin a Sintra by Annie Faivre

It’s been a long time since my last post and I am sorry for the wait. Even if I am not very active here on the blog, I try to update my Instagram page more regularly. If you haven’t visited it yet, I invite you to do it. You can find my Instagram account by clicking here. As I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I bought two scarves during my latest trip to London. The first one is Into the Canadian Wild, which I have already shown to you. The second one is Jardin a Sintra by Annie Faivre….

Postcard from London and my new Hermes scarf

I made a short trip to London for a couple of weeks ago to visit a very good friend of mine living there. Even though I had only four days to enjoy this fantastic city, I managed to visit a number of must-see London attractions. Unfortunately, the weather was not on my side – clouds, clouds and even more clouds… and sometimes rain! Despite the weather, I managed to take some nice pictures to share with you. My travel experience would not be complete without a visit  to an Hermes store. I had a couple of designs on my mind, which I wanted…

Les trésors d’un Artiste by Pierre Marie

I am very happy to share with you the pictures of my first Hermes scarf from the Fall 2017 collection –  Les trésors d’un Artiste by the famous designer Pierre Marie. After trying a number of different colour ways my choice has fallen on the colour way 16 in vibrant beige/red/green. I find this colour way to be very versatile and easy to match with my other wardrobe pieces. The beige background of the scarf is so incredibly pretty and will go well with so many different classic colours. Just a few words about the history of the design. According…

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…

On a Summer Day by Nigel Peake

Today I would like to show you some modeling pictures of my new On a Summer Day scarf designed by the famous illustrator and architect by training Nigel Peake. This scarf is from the Spring Summer 2017 collection. When I saw the first pictures of this design on http://www.hermes.com I knew it had to be mine. The design is very modern and fresh. It comes in several vibrant Spring colors. I have tried a number of different color ways but the color way nr 16 in red/white/multicolor was the one which worked best with my complexion. As described on the website of Hermes,…

Etude pour un Iris Arc-en-ciel

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…

Les Tuileries Scarf by Joachim Metz

Hermes Les Tuileries scarf is another favorite scarf of mine in white, emerald green and gold. It was designed by Joachim Metz in 1990 and reissued in 1996. Named after the famous Tuileries Gardens in Paris, this beautiful design features Mercury riding a winged horse in the center with swirling gold detailing of ropes and tassels. Les Tuileries is a stunning piece, which ties like a dream. Below I invite you to see some beautiful looks I created using my Les Tuileries scarf.

My Vintage Hermès Napoleon Scarf

Today I would like to share with you some pictures of my gorgeous Hermes Napoleon scarf, which I was lucky to find at http://www.its-all-goode.com This beautiful scarf was designed by the famous Philippe Ledoux and reissued a number of times due to its enormous popularity. It is a bee jacquard scarf paying homage to Napoleon Bonaparte. Most people are enthralled by the extraordinary level of detail in this famous scarf. The four medallions in the corners of the scarf, beautifully framed by a laurel wreath, represent the two most significant dates during the Napoleonic age – his coronation on December 2, 1804 and his death…

My Vintage Hermes Musée Scarf

The vintage Hermes Musée scarf is the latest addition to my growing scarf collection. It was designed by the legendary Philippe Ledoux and first issued in 1962. The scarf features different nautical themed items and is beautifully framed by ropes and chains. It is set against a gorgeous crispy white background. Once I saw this scarf on http://www.its-all-goode.com, I knew I needed it. Some beautiful details of my Vintage Hermes Musée scarf.

Neutral Outfits

This time I would like to show you two neutral outfits using one of the most neutral scarves in my closet – Hermes Zenobie, Reine de Palmyre in pearl gray, green and beige. 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. My Chloe Marcie mini in pearl grey matches perfectly with my neutral outfit. Neutrals are very easy to…

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…

Hermes Brazil Maxi Twilly

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…

Elegant Purple

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 minute I saw this gavroche on the Hermes website I knew it had to be mine. The Panthera Pardus design is available in three different sizes and comes in a solid variety of color ways. I have chosen the gavroche (pocket square) size of the design in cream/brown/ green colors which matches perfectly with my other wardrobe pieces and works very well with my skin, eye and hair colors. Wearing Hermes Panthera Pardus with a brown top in a basic slide knot. Wearing the same gavroche with a cream top and in a cowboy knot.

Hermes Cheval Surprise Remix by Dimitri Rybaltchenko

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. Dimitri Rybaltchenko is the son of Vladimir Rybaltchenko, and the great-grandnephew of Philippe Ledoux. All renowned Hermes artists. The grandfather of Dimitri was born in Kiev, but moved to France in early 1900s, a few years after…

My First Hermes Scarf – Pelages et Camouflage by Aline Honore

Pelages et Camouflage is the first Hermes scarf I bought. I remember looking through different designs and color ways trying to choose the one which would work well with my wardrobe colors, as well as skin tone, hair and eye colors. Finally, after much deliberation, I chose this beautiful design Pelages et Camouflage in red, violet and brown designed by the famous Hermes designer Aline Honore. As it is seen on the pictures below, the design Pelages et Camouflage (translated to English as Furs and Camouflage) features a patchwork of animal skins framed by beads of pearls. It is one of many beautiful designs created by Aline…

If you could only imagine how much I like the Bateau Fleuri gavroche in turquoise/marine/lavande. When I first saw the design in this color way, I knew it had to be mine. I love so much about this gavroche, especially how the blues really pop. I think this color way looks particularly beautiful paired with a white crisp shirt, like on the pictures below.

I was asked by some of my Instagram followers to show how I do the twisted headband. Here is a short description of the method. 1. Fold your scarf into a basic fold. 2. Place the scarf under your hair. 3. Slide the ends through a scarf ring on top of your head. 4. Secure the ends of the scarf into a knot under your hair. 5. And voila, here you have it. 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…

My Hermes spring scarf

The weather in Sweden is getting warmer and I can feel spring around the corner. I long so much to stroll around with my little ones in our neighborhood on a sunny spring day.  Nothing reminds me so much of spring as one of my favorite Hermes scarves La Legende Du Poisson Corail – a stunning beauty in soft blue, yellow and green colors. This particular color combination makes me think of blooming spring flowers, new grass and a warm breeze. 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…

Today I received my first cashmere shawl from Hermes and I feel so over the moon. I have always considered myself being a 90×90 girl and never planned for getting a cashmere shawl.

Please welcome my new addition to the Hermes scarf collection – Cavalleria d’Etriers in violet/antique pink/red, cw 8. When I buy a new scarf I always try to choose the one in natural colors, the one which will be in harmony with my other wardrobe pieces. This shawl is definitely…
