Foulard de la semaine
After I posted last week's inaugural video Foulard 101 tutorial, I received several requests for options for silk squares. Your wish is my command! Both of these are ties I've featured before in "finished product" photos and that I frequently use with my large silk squares.
I've shown two versions of the basic fold, as sometimes a portion of the scarf pattern that I particularly like will be shown to better advantage with one or the other. Hermès scarves especially often have so much going on within the pattern that you can get an entirely different look from the same scarf just by folding it slightly differently. Twisting reduces the volume of the fabric, and lends a bit of "oh, this old thing?" insouciance to the look. (We love our silk carrés, but want to avoid looking too serious and da-dame.)
We'll do lots more with our silk squares, so if these ties don't appeal, stay tuned for future leçons!
