Reader's contributions and suggestions - Collier knot with a Twilly

When I introduced the 'Collier knot' a few days ago, Laura in Georgia suggested to try it with a Twilly. A truly wonderful idea, resulting in a very pretty and breezy neckline, I absolutely love it. To give the ribbon some volume and movement, I twirled the ends once, before securing them to the shoulder straps of the top. Many thanks, my dear Laura!

Apologies for being very much behind on comments. I've been busy preparing 'La Rentrée', and to get everything ready for DS's return to school next Monday. No time to stop at H for the moment, shopping is all about exercise books, pencils, clothes and sports equipment!

  1. Stunning and so clever! And my favourite twilly, too. I shall have to find an opportunity to try this, it might even work for autumn, worn with a plain cardi.

  2. Thank you, Bienchen. Here, the mornings and evenings are beginning to get cool, but by midday, we are back to summer. So the cardie combination will be perfect, many thanks for the suggestion. Have a great rest of the week!

  3. Is it any wonder that I sometime fail to get all of the items checked off of my daily to-do list? Playing with scarves and twillys is so much more fun! Thanks to Laura for the suggestion and to MaiTai for adding the extra twist for more volume. Off to my closet, I go! Maybe I can even get my "dreadful" orange Maillons to work? A button down under the tank, perhaps?
    Thank you for the diversion, MaiTai! ;-)

  4. I think some day I'll have to cave in and get a twilly...or two, after seeing here so many fantastic way to wear them...

  5. The more your posts, the more I am sure I missed the most amazing scarves in Hermes (twillies included), however still hope they might reissue them...a kind of "life is going hand in hand with Hermes" and I count the seasons by H collections. Your shopping basket reminded me about my tennis racket sitting on the very bottom of my wardrobe, intact for 10 might be good to try using it again after tapenade, bruschettas, apricot pies and all the magic things I prepared following your recipes. P.S. Still can knot a scarf around my waist, LOL. I am looking forward to the Reentre photo, as I name one of the knot after it. Lilian

  6. I love how this looks, and the twist is a totally cool touch! I'm finding that the Twilly is one of the most versatile pieces of silk because it can go from the handle of a purse without it being too heavy (like some of the scarves might be), wrapped around the handles as well, or it can be a floating bit around the neck that can move with the breeze.

    I also adore Bienchen's idea of doing this under a cardigan.

    We are a clever bunch aren't we? ;-)

  7. Really lovely with the Twilly! And so nice to find more uses for those silk darlings. Look forward to trying this.

  8. A very good alternative to the collier knot you presented, my dear MaiTai. Thank you for showing it to us and thank you to Laura for the great suggestion! Re school start, I fully understand you. There´s so one must think of! Here, up north school has already started almost 3 weeks ago. Warm hugs, M.

  9. Thanks so much, dear CS, booksnchocolate, Lilian, Laura in Georgia, NiniKnows and Manuela <3

    CS, great idea re the button down under the tank, this will make it a fabulous look for autumn and winter!

    booksnchocolate, I am sure you would not regret it, on some days, they are just the right amount of silk :-)

    Lilian, LOL re the H seasons! So happy to hear the recipes were a success, and bravo to your self dicipline <3

    Laura in Georgia, so pleased you like the knot, and many thanks again for the inspiration! And I could not agree more, you girls are simply the BEST!!

    NiniKnows, have fun playing :-)

    Manuela, three weeks already since school started up North! I can't believe how fast time is flying..x

  10. Tried this on Saturday, but didn't look half as good and so I just went with a "loose" ascot. ;-) But I'll give it another shot with a big one. Still, it made me bring out one of my often neglected twillys. greetings, Macs

  11. My dear Macs, I hope the knot worked out with one of your bigger silks, although the loose Ascot is always such a great look. Have a great rest of the week xx

  12. I always spent my half an hour to read this website's articles or reviews daily along with a cup of coffee.

    Here is my web blog - softer bristle hair []

  13. Howdy! I could have sworn I've been to this
    blog before but after checking through some of the post I
    realized it's new to me. Nonetheless, I'm definitely happy
    I found it and I'll be book-marking and checking back
