The Adventurer

With your adventurous spirit, you’re always on the go which means ease is key. But that shouldn’t compromise style. Introduce a flash of print to your bag handle or waistband, and away you go...



How to: Using a flat surface for ease, lay your scarf down before folding both opposing corners inwards. Fold the outer edges inwards once more so one side is on top of the other. Finally, keeping your folds in place, lift and feed through your belt loop or around a bag handle, creating a neat knot to finish.

The Curator

You’re a custodian of refined and perfectly formed pieces. A curator of simple yet effective style, so it's no wonder that a scarf tied neatly around the neck is your signature.


How to: Lying the scarf flat on a surface, simply fold both sides in twice from the outside in, holding the folds in place as you wrap around your neck. Form a loose knot on one side, leaving a few inches of the end of the scarf out. Proceed to loop the other end of the scarf through the knot and pull to your desired length and tightness.

The Maker

You’re a tastemaker. A purveyor of beautiful things. Someone that inspires, rather than follows. So where others see a scarf, you see a whole world of opportunity. Why wouldn’t you transform yours into a bag?


How to: Delicately tie the corners of the scarf into two knots, creating a swaddle of silk for your on-the-go essentials.

The Composer

A promoter of the Avant-Garde, you invent style and design, drawing inspiration from all the elements around you, which in scarf terms, sees you transform yours into a twisted halter top.


How to: Joining two opposing corners together, wrap the folded scarf around your waist, tying a knot to your side. Lift the hanging corner up, twisting to create a makeshift strap. Finally, slip a ring onto the strap before lifting this over your shoulder and tying back onto your side knot.

Create two looks in one by opening up the twist to create a capped sleeve.

The Artist

You’re a born artist with an imagination that simply knows no bounds. So suffice to say, we’ve come to expect the unexpected from you. And as for the latest incarnation of your creativity? A sarong top that defies convention at every turn.


How to: Folding the two opposing corners inwards to create a large triangle, wrap the scarf around your back before crossing the corners over at the front to create a top. Finally, wrap the corners behind your neck, tying in a neat, secure knot at the nape of your neck. Adjust your pieces at the front for desired coverage.
