Les Canyons Etoiles Bandana

So following on from the intro to the new bandana which you can see here I have done some photos of ways to wear it:-
A simple bias fold here secured with moyenne 
scarf ring and sliding both ends through the ring

Here I have done a slip knot using the 
moyenne scarf ring - that's securing one end 
of the scarf through the ring and then pulling 
the other loose end through the loop of the 

scarf rather than the ring itself.

Here I have made a half bow knot - as per the 
slip knot above, but fold the loose end 
in half and pull through the loop to make a 
bow, fan out to make a bow shape.  
This is one of my favourite ways to wear a 
scarf and very easy to do.
Here I tied a Half Ascot Knot and slid the scarf to the 
side - you can wear it to the side or centrally as 
shown below.

For this look I made a bias fold then put the scarf 
around the neck and brought the ends to 
meet in the front and secured them with a petite 
scarf ring - it is snug but warm, especially if you 
have a sore throat - they say silk is supposed to help cure it!

A simple cowboy look - fold scarf to make a 
triangle and tie at the back or use a scarf 
ring to secure.

Same again but shorter - I secured this 
one with a scarf ring and pulled the 
ends further through to shorten the look.
As above only I pulled the scarf round to the side - 
using a scarf ring for this loo allows the scarf to 
sit a bit flatter round the back/sides.

This was just a triangle secured at the front with my 
moyenne scarf ring for an easy to wear look.

Here I used the bias fold again, slipped a 
nice scarf ring on to the front and tied the 
scarf with a knot at the back - of course this 
would look much better over a polo neck 
rather than my open neck shirt but you 
get the idea!

Bias fold knotted in the middle and secured
with a knot tied at the back.

Here I made a butterfly knot from the bias folded scarf 
using a scarf ring which give s a nice puffy bow look.

I think you can see that with a bandana you can pretty much choose the same knots and bows as you do for 70cm or 90cm - just play around with it and see what you com up with!  Have fun playing!

Something Blue

It's been a while since I posted anything scarf related so here is a little something I picked up in Paris in 2014 I think.  I got it at FSH and remember that I was annoyed because they put it in THE WRONG BOX, I really hate that when Hermes do that especially at FSH, as they of all shops should have the correct box!!!!!  Ahem Ok on with the reveal...

That offending WRONG box!
Any guesses?
Something small and navy blue...
Ta-da!  It's a new Bandana...

Les Canyons Etoiles

I like the little shooting stars which fill the middle of the design.

The bandana is designed by Pierre Marie - I have a few
of his designs and like them very much.

Here you can see the canyons that surround the
edge of the banada.
Next time I will post photos of how you can wear this scarf.

Royal Fun in the Snow!

The Cambridge family shared some super cute photos from their short break to Courchevel in the French Alps.  I am very jealous as I love the snow but we don't get much, if any where I live!

Daddy's Girl Charlotte - I think she looks 
very like the Queen when she was little!

William and Kate took the chance for a spot of horseplay too!
