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.

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…

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.

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 shawl and Maison Michel hat

The weather in Sweden has been rather warm during the passed two days so we took a chance and went out for a long walk around a lake near our home. That was also an opportunity for me to wear my new Hermes cashmere shawl, which went very well with my navy Maison Michel Henrietta hat. I am a great fan of this fashion brand and own three hats designed by Maison Michel. The brand was founded in 1936 and is now owned by Chanel. I get lots of compliments when I wear my Maison Michel hats. The hats created by this brand…
