Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well!
Today I wanted to share my silk scarf collection with you guys and also show you how I wear them. For about two years now, I’ve been really into silk scarves. They’re so chic and can spice up any look. Also, there are so many different kinds! Do you own a silk scarf? Let me know in the comments😊
I hope you’ll like this post, happy reading!
The first silk scarf that I got is the Dior ABCDior mitzah in dark blue (6 x 100cm). I got it about two years ago at the Dior boutique in New York. I really loved this collection of mitzahs, there are all 26 letters of the alphabet, in lots of different prints and colors. I got the R one, which has deep blue tones with hints of yellow. The motifs are all celestial: stars, moon, constellations, sun,…
The mitzha is quite versatile because you can wear it in a few different ways. I like to tie it around my neck, like on the picture above. You can also wear it like a head band or around your wrist. You can even tie it on your handbag!
The next one is from Hermès and is a small square silk scarf (45 x 45cm) called “Awooooo” because there is a wolf on it. I actually got it as a gift from Hermès when I visited the 2019 SIHH (international watch fair that takes place in Geneva every year) with my University, which was totally unexpected and we all felt super lucky and thankful for this special gift.
Since it was the middle of January, the scarf is made with a blend of silk and cashmere, so soft! I believe it was a scarf made specially for the occasion because I couldn’t find it on the Hermès website. There is a big wolf head with some forest trees and stars in the sky.
I like to wear this one in two different ways. I simply tie it around my neck or I tie it on my jeans. I fold the square diagonally to make a triangle and then roll it to make a “tube”. Then, I just tie it around my neck or my jeans.
The next one is also from Hermès and was a Christmas gift from my family. It’s called “Cosmographia Universalis” and is 90 x 90 cm. It was designed by Jan Bajtlik, who took inspiration from Sebastian Münster, a cartographer, historian, astronomer, mathematician and Hebrew professor. According to the official Hermès website, Sebastian Münster published in 1544 his work called “Cosmographia Universalis“, in which he represented his vision of the world made up of myths and legends. There is an “imaginary landscape and mixes architecture, fauna and flora. Taking as models the seahorses, sea monsters or even pyramids of the work, (Jan Bajtlik) creates a dreamlike universe populated by extraordinary creatures.” – via the Hermès website.
There are a few different color combos available, but I got the one with pink, red and white (mostly). When I chose it at the Hermès boutique in Geneva, the lady who was helping us showed me how to wear it around my neck (like on the picture above). To wear it like so, I start by folding the silk square diagonally to make a triangle. I then roll the longest edge of the triangle (about two or three times) to make it smaller. I then grab it by the rolled edges and place it around my neck, tying it in the front.
You can also wear this silk scarf on your head as a head band or around your waist. My favorite way is shown on the picture above.
And the last silk scarf of my collection is the Dior “Kaléidiorscope” in navy blue. I got this one last year in the iconic Avenue Montaigne boutique in Paris (which is a must see in my opinion!). It is 90 x 90 cm and has deep blue tones, inspired by the tie and dye technique and a kaleidoscope.
You can wear this silk scarf in so many different ways. I like to wear it around my neck; I fold the square diagonally and then tie it in the front. I also like to wear it as a belt; fo this I fold it diagonally to make a triangle and then roll it to make a “tube”. I then pass it through the loops to then tie it in the front. You can also wear it around your head or tie it differently around your neck.
And there you guys go, this was my silk scarf collection and how I wear them! I really hope you guys liked this blog post, please let me know if you own a silk scarf in the comments, I’d love to know😊
