Scarf tying event ~ 'Soyez belle en soie'

Today I've been to an event I have been very much looking forward to, the 'Soyez belle en soie' scarf day at Hermès. When entering the store I saw the scarf counter covered in scarves to be played and experimented with. Upstairs there was a little photostudio rigged up and after playing with the scarves everyone could have their pic taken, which was then printed out to look like the cover of LeMonde. Every customer got 'their LeMonde' on leaving the event. It was such fun.

the invitation


I chose the scarf (Zavabushka) and the stylist came up with the idea of a pirate head scarf, a style I would have never considered wearing. But hey, pirate it up!!

  1. If Hermes doesn't sign you immediately, they're missing a wonderful opportunity, as you add so much elegance and joie de vivre to the brand.

    To me, you are Hermes!

  7. That looks like so much fun! You look fab with the headscarf -- I envy anyone who can wear a scarf that style. Love it.

  9. Thank you for your report, MaiTai.

    The photo presentation in your city is so far the best dans le monde. :)

  10. MaiTai,
    I can't express how delightful the photo of you on the Le Monde cover is! And the "pirate" look definitely suits you! Were you previously a model? Because you certainly have the look and the stance...
    xxxooo

  14. I love that 'cover' of you, Mai Tai! It's divine and proof that ANY way you wear a scarf is elegant! I wish they had such an event at my local (of course, my picture would be goofy and silly!).

    A lovely picture, a lovely scarf, and a lovely lady!

  16. lulilu, Bonjour Madame, Lutz, @danse, lifeatmyfingertips, Rose and Scarf Addict ~ thank you for sharing the fun and for your lovely comments and compliments <3

    luliu, wearing a scarf this style is slightly out of my comfort zone, but it was great fun for the shoot :)

    Bonjour Madame, you are vraiment très gentil, thank you so much!

    Lutz, I will forward your compliments to the store!

    danse, you are so kind, thank you. If I was, then maybe a few lightyears ago, but my memory hardly reaches that far. ;-) <3

    DD, you are too kind! But have to say that the Zavabushka is made for YOU my dear!

    Rose, thank you.

    Scarf Addict, howdy mate! :-)
