and I was looking for knot which would highlight one of the scarf's fabulous corners, similar to the way it has been done in the museum.
Because of the hot and sunny weather, a cowboy knot, or even a criss-cross knot, was out of the question. I started experimenting with the Collier knot instead and found a variation which leaves the ends long while bringing the corner out.
Capsule pieces: black tank and blue jeans
Shoes: blue patent leather pumps
Accessories: Hermès 'Cuirs du Désert' 90 Carré, clic-clac H enamel bracelet in bourgogne and Bolide in Bleu de PrusseScarf tying method: reverse collier knot, how-to below
Scarf rings: MaiTai Collection Grande Classique horn scarf rings in black
Fix the scarf in the same way to your top as with the Collier knot, but start with the scarf hanging off your neck in the basic bias fold. This brings the ends of the finished knot to your front, instead of ending up behind your neck. Pushing the scarf ring towards the center of the scarf results in long ends. The perfect scarf ring size is the Grande.
In the next step, take one end and bring it to the other side, and feed it through the scarf ring (in a basic slide or criss-cross). As with the regular Collier knot, the scarf is mostly in contact with the clothing and not the skin, which makes it an ideal knot for hot summer days.
