It’s time to dig out your silk scarves; Summer is the perfect season to make the most of them and the geniuses at Hermès have come up with a novel way of showing us just how we can. I was recently given a pack of their Cartes à Nouer or Knotting Cards and this is a small selection of the ways in which you can knot your silk (or otherwise) scarves. From traditional around-the-neck to wearing them on your head and even making tops out of them, the cards feature photographs of how the scarves would look and on the reverse of each card, pretty diagrams on how to tie a scarf to achieve the look. Totally inspirational!
