FSH inspiration!

The colors in the Hermes Paris spring windows immediately made me think of a holiday at a seaside resort,  a place like Deauville perhaps: the different shades of blue mixed with white, black, and silver provided a fresh and breezy atmosphere and made the perfect backdrop for the occasional splash of burgundy, orange, cognac, and gold.

The beautiful strong blues obviously had an effect on me... when browsing the scarf counter I was thrilled to find my favorite spring/summer design in a CW that seemed to have come straight out of the window display.

Hope you enjoy the window-inspired spring looks and have a wonderful May everyone! xxx

  2. Chère Maitai,
    En ce jour de fête des mères, quel joli cadeau que ces belles photos pour accompagner thé et croissants. Le carré robe du soir, plutôt classique, est magnifique et j'admire la manière dont tu le rends résolument moderne.
    Très belle journée au sud de la France!
    À Fribourg c'est plutôt gris et brumeux, bec !

    1. Je te remercie pour ta gentil message, je suis ravi que les photos t'ai plu. On va fêter la fête des mères ce weekend, avec du thé et des croissants, bien sur (et j'espère avec un peu de soleil.. à Fribourg et ici)! Belle fin de semaine

  3. Fabulous MaiTai,

    We can count on your being always one (or several!) steps ahead, knowing what will inspire, resonate and bring joy. The colours of FSH windows are exquisite, and your new scarf is very such a perfect addition to your collection.
    Love the scarf rings, and the new additions look perfectly suited to complement metallic hues of accessories and scarf cws.

    The new additions to MT collection are always a treat and I can wholeheartedly vouch for the appeal of the long gemstone necklaces - they easily become best travelling companions and always, always garner lots of compliments.

    Happy Mother’s Day and have a lovely week ahead!

    With kindest regards,


    1. Dearest Aneta, - how very lovely to see you under your name, a very special and warm welcome to the pond! Even without Leïla, the windows continue to dazzle.. the beautiful colors and combinations are such a great source of inspiration. Mother's Day in France is on the 27th, so even though I'm late in replying, your wishes are right on time!

      Have a wonderful weekend ahead x

      PS. So happy you love the long gemstone necklaces

  4. Dearest MaiTai,

    What a beautiful post! Congratulations on your new scarf, scarf rings and jewelry.
    The scarf is one of my favourites in the Spring/Summer collection too. Your new gemstone necklaces are quite lovely. What a beautiful Etro blouse you have! It's always a pleasure to look at the stunning Hermès windows with you <3
    I wish you a wonderful May with lots of sunshine. Much love, Manuela xx

    1. Thanks so much, dearest Manuela! Have you been thinking of adding the RdS to your collection? My resistence broke down after seeing the windows.. So happy you enjoyed the FSH pics, I always feel I'm in good company when taking them <3 Have a wonderful week! xx

  5. I always enjoy your posts, and I especially love that orange top you are wearing with the black jacket. Can you tell me the brand? Thank you and keep the great looks coming!

    1. Thank you Anna, happy you enjoy the posts. The orange linen sweater is by Gerard Darel, but it goes a few seasons back. Hope you can find something similar, wishing you the best of luck!

    2. Thank you so much, I am now "on the hunt"....

  6. Dear MaiTai,
    lovely pictures and so inspiring!
    I never thought about wearing gold or silver scarf rings with my scarves. But I have to admit that they look absolutely classic and chic!
    Have a very HAPPY week
    Claudia :-)

    1. Thank you, dearest Claudia! Isn't it amazing how a new scarf ring can change the entire look - I'm having such fun trying them out with my scarf collection. Have a lovely remaining week and a happy weekend ahead!

  7. Hello! Please tell me about your beautiful watch! It looks like a Tank Anglaise? It looks fabulous with your other accessories. I'm considering a purchase myself, but undecided yet about which style. Thank you!

    1. Hello k marti, happy you like my watch! It's a Jaeger-LeCoultre small Reverso. I had it for more than twenty years, and still love it as much as I did in the beginning.

  8. All the blues are so refreshing! I especially like you in that darling short-sleeved sweater outfit. You've got the arms for it, dear MT! The new accessories are beautiful; I'd better pick my favorite before you sell out. Happy almost-summer to you and yours!
    Much aloha,

    1. Aww so sweet you picked out the sweater, thank you! I feel a little bit sentimental about it.. bought in NYC at Banana Republic in 2011, I wore it that autumn when I took DS for the first time to highschool. This month was his last day at school, and looking at the old pictures the day before, I decided to wear it again when I picked him up for the last time (but also adding my new scarf)!
      Wishing you a very happy summer too! xx

  9. Dear MaiTai,
    you have such a good hand at picking the most beautiful scarves of the season. I was also anticipating Robe du soir, but the perfect CW hasn’t come my way yet. Your pictures definitely convince with blue in all shades and it’s lovely how your new gold and silver scarf rings compliment the colour. Your interpretation of the FSH windows is - as always - to the point and a real feast for the eyes. Seeing the gemstone necklaces have already sold out tells me you landed another hit. Congrats!
    Love, Katja

    1. Dear Katja, - so happy you like my new scarf, thanks so much! Hope you'll come across the perfect CW, it's such a lovely design. The FSH windows are so different now, but still a wonderful source of inspiration.. the colors are always just sublime. Much love and hope you are having a wonderful early summer!
