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…

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!

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.

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…
