New scarf ring collection and FSH window inspiration

I am incredibly excited and happy to launch a new collection of reversible scarf rings today. It's been a long work process to achieve perfection, and I couldn't be more pleased with the result.  The new rings are available in all three Classique ring sizes (Petite, Moyenne and Grande) and come with a gold or silver plated metal base. If you click here, you can see the collection and different color combinations. More colors to follow in the months to come!

Our summer has been long and hot, which is why I am all the more excited for the scarf season to approach and to post an autumn blog. Also, perfect timing to introduce the new scarf rings!  The outfit and scarf combinations below are inspired by the current fall windows at Hermes in Paris and pictures of nature I take when walking the dogs (instagram.com/the.wiener.boys/) in the Southern French countryside. 

For now, it is only our nights and mornings that are wonderfully fresh and cool, it still gets summery and hot in the daytime. The clothes I am wearing are therefore still quite light... if you live in a cooler climate just imagine them with long sleeves!

Scarf and scarf ring as above, the scarf tied in a Cowboy knot with the orange side of the scarf ring

The above display instantly made me think of my first Hermes scarf which I received all the way back in 1985, Courbettes et Cabrioles by Françoise Façonnet


Tying it with taupe/orange/silver reversible Grande Classique scarf ring (taupe side up, (here) in a criss-cross bow knot.
