Hermes Scarf Lovers' Kama Sutra -- Illustrated Edition!!!

  1. Because even the greatest lovers need an instruction manual from time to time...

    All this talk about scarves and how to wear them always sends me back to the books (the Carre or Playtime with Your Scarf) to find some new 'formule' for wearing mine. In conjunction with other great scarf threads, such as Rose's 'Which Scarf/Pointu/Pochette are you wearing today?' ( http://forum.purseblog.com/hermes/which-scarf-pointu-pochette-are-you-wearing-today-113322.html), with this thread as an interactive mini-instruction manual, I hope we can all explore the different ways to wear these beautiful works of art by posting the book illustration and finished result. When I was first getting the hang of wearing the carres, the Playtime book was never enough; it was always more useful to see as many other people's methods in practice as possible.

    No need to go in any particular order, just jump right in with:

    (1) the Playtime instructions, if possible and/or Formula #, and
    (2) your pic

    To get us going, here's one formula that I've been using for so long, it's become more of a personal habit.

    Formula 230 (or, as I like to think of it: the Lazy Twist)

  10. Here's one of my favorites: the ascot. I had to look on the internet for instructions so I don't have a # for it, sorry!

    Quote:
    "Ascots invoke images of old Hollywood and a royal day at the races. This hybrid of a tie and scarf is a rare sight these days, one that will surely bring attention to those who dare to wear it."
