Hermes Scarf Knotting Tips and Tricks

Other Brands

I meant to post this last week but with our server down for two days, I completely forgot! So here it is, my favorite ways to tie and knot scarves on bags. The blue jean birkin above is tied with a limited edition cotton Hermes scarf. I found that the cotton ones were easiest to work with but I like the way the silk scarves hang better. The style above may be done by folding your scarf diagonally (2 inch thickness), then tie a knot on the handle– keeping one side four inches longer than the other, pull through a single bow instead of two and voila, instant chic-ness. See more styles after the jump!

Hermes Scarf Knotting Tips and Tricks

I folded the silk scarf above straight across (2 inch thickness), tied a knot, left one side a couple of inches longer, and pulled through a single bow as the one above. This is nice for the Lindy because it’s a shorter bag and you don’t want too long of ends dangling about.

For days when I’m feeling girly and silly, I tie a regular double bow with a twilly scarf. I love twilly scarves for bags because they’re already the perfect width and easy to tie. The right side is a single bow achieved with the same instructions above.

I generally do not tie any scarves on my exotic birkins because why compete with the beautiful details in croc and ostrich with a hundred dollar scarf!?!? But I tied this on to show you how great an orange bag looks with a pink multi colored scarf. I love contrasting colors, pink and orange really looks fantastic together!

The same may be achieved with a Kelly bag (I didn’t have time to do the Kelly photos but will load it up another time) or any other bags in your closet! You can pull out an outdated bag, throw on a scarf in the color of the season, and you’ll look stylish and current! And it doesn’t have to be an Hermes scarf, either. Any scarf will do, I am just an Hermes addict.

Thom Browne ‘Hector Browne’ Bag

Other Brands

IMAGE: COLETTE

First, before we start, I just want to say that no actual dogs were harmed in the process of making this bag, which well, looks like an actual dog. More specifically, this is supposed to resemble designer Thom Browne’s own dog, his pet dachshund that’s named Hector.

Measuring almost 36 cm across (it’s supposedly life-sized and modelled after the real Hector), you’ll find a pair of top handles, a zip that runs along the spine of the dog (ok, it actually sounds creepy when you say it out loud) and on the inside you’ll find patch pockets on Thom Browne’s signature striped canvas fabric.

Looking more like an otter (or a really large rat) than an actual dachshund (maybe it’s the angle, maybe it’s the fact that beaver fur is used on this bag), you can pick it up now via Colette and give it a good home, provided of course you bark up the EUR2995(or almost SGD4500) first.

If you like it but prefer it without the fur, there is a full grained leather version that’s actually pretty sleek, along with a selection of Hector-shaped pouches and coin purses in different colours, which you can find online via Colette as well.

Hermes Birkin Bags Street Style

Other Brands

The Birkin bag is a handbag by Hermès, handmade in leather and named after actress and singer Jane Birkin. The bag is a symbol of wealth due to its high price and usage by celebrities. A “Shooting Star” Birkin has a stamp shaped like a shooting star adjacent to the “Hermès, Paris Made in France” stamp; this is in gold or silver to match the hardware and embossing. Rarely, the stamp is blind or colorless, if the bag is made of one or two leathers on which Hermès does not use metallic stamping. Birkins or other Hermès bags can sometimes be made by independent craftsmen for “personal use” once a year. Every bag bears the stamp of the craftsperson who made the bag. Birkin bags authentic online shop buy vintage handbags where to buy original how to spot a fake replica. These identifications vary widely but are not different for every bag made. More than one craftsman’s stamp on a bag is not uncommon because the stamp is not a serial reference. Fonts and stamping orders may vary depending on the craftsman.

The bag was conceived in 1981. “I remember it well. I’d been upgraded by Air France on a flight to London, and was sitting next to a man,” Jane Birkin told The Telegraph in March 2012. “I’m not quite sure what type of bag I had with me – my husband, Jacques Doillon, had reversed his car over my basket, crushed it on purpose not two days before. Little did he know that on this airplane journey, when everything fell out of whatever bag I had, the man next to me said: ‘You should have one with pockets’. I said: ‘The day Hermès make one with pockets I will have that’, and he said: ‘But I am Hermès and I will put pockets in for you’.”

Reviewing Coach New Legacy Colorblock Mini Tanner

Other Brands

If this Coach bag was all white, would you consider buying it? Certainly the purple contrast is doing something that makes this bag more appealing. The small strap on the top handle is hanging on the right spot. I like to drink my coffee balanced, exaggerate the bag too much with purple and it will not deserve my eyes, too little and the color wouldn’t catch my attention. But Coach knew how to balance it. Bravo!

Do you need a quick grab? A day for shopping or even a stylish bag for vacation? The Coach mini tanner is your BFF, it’s theideal bag. Walk with it and people will either stare at you or give you compliments, just get used to it. It carries all your essentials, e-reader, sunglass case, make-up box, your double zip wallet and much more.

Saint Laurent Beach Shopping Tote

Other Brands

IMAGE: SAINT LAURENT

I’ve seen this in stores, I’ve seen it online, but why I never featured this earlier still escapes me since it is a pretty functional piece that’s built to last a lifetime.

Simply known as the Saint Laurent Beach Shopping Tote, though I think the name should actually be beach AND/OR shopping since you can use it for both scenarios, it’s officially also one of the handful of bags from Saint Laurent today that you’ll find made almost entirely of thick canvas.

Measuring almost 40 cm in height by 34 cm across, all you get is small bits of leather where the handles are, a magnetic snap button closure and the words 24 Rue de L’Université printed under the Saint Laurent logo (a reference to the French brands’s reinstated Left Bank couture house), which has a slight tinge of irony since the canvas tote is hardly couture to begin with. The thing is, with Hedi Slimane’s departure, we’ll never know the backstory on why these exact words were placed so prominently on a bag like this, but it doesn’t matter anymore either.

Priced at GBP470 online (or around SGD840 after conversion), this unisex vertical tote also comes with a sister that takes on a more horizontal form (wider than it is tall), which means you’ll just need to decide which shape works better for you.
