Hermes is all in the details...
from the hand rolled edges and the neatly spaced stitching,
to their signature twill weave,
and then the talented artist designed prints.
And of course there are the orange boxes,
the brown embossed grossgrain ribbons
and the gift enclosure cards!
There are tips in the giveaway books and cards on how to wear and tie these lovelies.
This was the way my mom wore her scarves in the 60's and 70's.
It suits her and the Queen...but not me!
I wore mine like this in the mid 70's with my long wavy hippie chic hair and sterling silver hoop earrings.
In fact I had mine on at our wedding rehearsal dinner at the Chinese restaurant...
we had been renovating the suite that we were moving into and time was of the essence,
so I did not have time to coif my hair...
just shower and go.
Those were the days when a lick and a promise were all it took!
I was a bit of a flower child anyhow.
This is one way I like to tie my scarf.
I love how "French" she looks!
I will be showing some more scarves in another post...
