Vintage Silk Scarves

The 70cm x 70cm vintage silk scarves made by Hermes are probably my most favourite size of scarf, being small I sometimes feel I get lost in the 90cm ones!! The silk is much softer and more flexible than 90cm scarf silk and it even hand washes very well - Hermes do not recommend washing but I prefer it!  Hermes started to offer the 70cm size in 2007 and now each season they usually reissue some older designs and some new fresh designs in the 70cm size.  I already have my eye on a few of the SS10 designs.

Anyway inspired by a lovely lady on tpf here are a few of my 70cm scarves - lets see the black ones first....there'll be another instalment of another colour another time!



Brandebourgs
I bought this because I love military costume and as you can see from the far right of the photo I have it in blue too.  This one folds beautifully to show off the braid swirls on the corners.



Please Check In
I bought this scarf to reflect my love of travel - I thought the design was very clever by Dmitri Rybaltchenko.


PCI worn with a basic fold and pulled through a scarf ring.





Graphic Night


This purchase was inspired to 2 lovely tpf ladies - and because I love New York City - this is really a man's scarf and reflects the twinkling city skyscrapers at night and is covered in little Hermes "H"s and has a lovely red contrast hem.  I was lucky to get this as it was the last one at Hermes FSH!!

  2. I love the 70 cm size for the same reasons you list. They are so much softer.

  3. Yes Bonjour Madame I love the softer silk of the 70cm - I am always too impatient to wait for the 90cms to soften up!!

  5. Lordfam, for the best advice on using a scarf ring check out this super blog which has lots of easy to follow instructions
    http://www.maitaispicturebook.blogspot.com/
    and of course The Purse Forum

    Hope these are helpful!
    You can use finger rings for scarf rings - I do all the time as long as they are smooth and have nothing catchy on them. UK size U is good for 90cm scarves and size P for 70cm scarves.
    Thanks for dropping by.
