Leçon, comment plier un foulard

It’s been a bit too warm this week for wearing les foulards, but a reader had asked how to tie last week’s Foulard de la semaine, so here it is:

This scarf fold is the foundation for many of my favorite ways to wear a silk square. Lay the scarf out on a flat surface (preferably one not covered in dog hair, unlike our bed) with the printed side down.

Fold two of the opposite corners in diagonally 1/2 to 2/3 of the way across.

Fold in again 2/3 from opposite corners. Don’t worry if it’s a little uneven; too much precision unermines that “just threw it on” effect we’re going for.

Fold in half. Now your scarf is ready to tie.

Drape around the neck with one end longer than the other. Take the longer end and wrap around the shorter end in a single knot.

Voilà!

    Great “how to” post.
    It is so hot in LA now that I’m going to go back through Style Spy’s posts and find the one where she demonstrates how to make a halter top out of a hermes scarf.

    I’m glad you got one of those scarves for yourself, Ms. Pseu, it looks superbe on you with the grey top!–note to Belle de Ville : Mai Tais Picture Book (see Deja Pseu’s list of favourite Blogs) has a comprehensive set of knot tying lessons that are very clear–and features some stunning blonde woman living the life I dream about (who IS she, a front man for Hermes?She’s so perfect!) There is also Purse Forum’s” What scarf/ pointue are you wearing today?” thread which has good tips from Hermes acolytes.

    You are truly a savant of the scarf! Thanks for the how-to!

    They should feature you on the Hermès scarf-lesson cards!

    Like that tie but it unties quickly on me so knot it one more time, to make the half-ascot. I find the yahoo group AllThingsHermesInternational good for scarf info.

    And here I thought the dog hair was an extra charge…

    Merci, everyone!

    Duchesse – sometimes the lighter weight scarves will stay in place this way, but yes, the extra knot gives added security.

    Fred the Mole – I do look at Easy Paris every day, just haven’t commented in a while. 🙂
