Zero-Gravity Scarf Rngs and a New Scarf!

When the stars align...is there a better way to introduce a new scarf ring-type than with a new scarf!

This ring is born out of the love of how a scarf looks when worn off-center and having to find a way to beat the forces of gravity, which pull even the lightest silks swiftly back to the center.

I am so pleased with the resulting ring, which I named Zero-Gravity in honor of a job well done. It lets you arrange your scarf into an off-center position and keeps it there securely in place all day long. The scarf itself doesn't get pierced, of course. You attach the pin, just like a brooch, to your clothing only. To order, or to read more about how to use it, please click here

The Zero-Gravity Classique scarf ring comes in black/gold, as below, as well as in orange and cream with gold rims, and in black, orange, and ivory with silver rims. Available here


The Index Palmarum beautifully combines my love for nature and Hermes silks. The description on hermes.com (referring to the amazingly diverse colors and shapes of the palm species depicted on the scarf) sums it up perfectly:

"Is anything more creative than Mother Nature herself?"

My answer would, of course, be "no," but in this instance, Hermès' colorists come in a close second...the Ivoire/Vert Olive/Amande CW (01) is just fabulous - the colors are strong and at the same time soft without being too bright or washed out. The icing on the cake? A taupe contrast hem!

Hope you enjoy the  in all its off-center beauty!

FSH inspiration and gold Anneau Infinity rings!

While we still have warm weather in the afternoons in the South of France, the temperatures in Paris last week were already autumnal and cool. The perfect weather to discover the fall windows at FSH of course, and to find inspiration for autumn looks! The bags and accessories on display came in rich warm colors, and there couldn't have been a better backdrop for the introduction of the new gold-colored Anneau Infinity scarf ring, than the wardrobe choices that the windows inspired.

As you can see from the pictures below, I got a little bit carried away with the Anneau necklace knot. I just love the look of the gold baubles nestling in-between puffed out pockets of silk. If you like that knot too, you can enjoy an introductory discount of 20% which is automatically applied when you select a set of three instead of a single ring. And of course with the upcoming holiday season in mind, you can always keep one for yourself and gift the other two later.

Hope you enjoy the post and have a wonderful weekend!
