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 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…

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.

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…

Hermes Panthera Pardus by Robert Dallet

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. I was very surprised to see how beautifully this gavroche matched with…

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…

The Bateau Fleuri gavroche by Hermes

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. Wearing the Bateau Fleuri gavroche tied in a little gaucho knot. The same gavroche in a double twist knot. The Bateau Fleuri gavroche tied in a cowboy knot.

Twisted headband‏

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…
