How to tie a scarf | The 90


The 90, or the perfect winter friend

The largest in our scarf range, our 90cm scarf is the winter piece by essence. Perfect to play with colors, volumes and proportions, it provides for the necessary warmth and comfort any winter piece should offer. Tucked in, tight, loosely or rolled twice around your neck, the options are endless.

Let's go over some of the most obvious ways of how to tie a 90cm scarf with a selection of our pieces from Le Isole, Arcipelago and La Collection N°1.

How to tie a 90cm scarf the obvious, most natural way

Let's start with the most classic, obvious winter option. Once folded into a twisted band of fabric, just wrap your scarf twice around your neck, adjusting it tightly to the collar of your coat or jacket. The result is warm, smooth and colorful.

How to tie a 90cm scarf in the lighter, tucked in option

Another winter classic, the tucked in provides for a lighter alternative. This time you just wrap your 90cm scarf once around your neck and tie it with a simple knot on the front, tucking the rest inside your coat or jacket. Very elegant, the tucked in provides for the same level of warmth and comfort while being more discreet, adding just a hint of color to your outfit. Particularly adapted to windy circumstances, whether at the beach in Normandy, on a boat on the Atlantic French coast or on a motorino in the streets of Milan, it is the perfect option to avoid having your 90cm scarf waving into your face. In terms of style, it might have less panache but there definitely is a very unique form of formal, traditional elegance to it beyond the delightful sensation of feeling covered and protected.

How to tie a 90cm scarf the untucked way

Bringing more panache to the table, just untuck your 90cm scarf and wear it like this, in the open, thus completely reinventing the proportions of your outfit. Leaving the tips of your 90cm scarf scarf effortlessly lay on your coat or jacket not only has an impact on proportions, but also allows to establish a dialogue between the color of your scarf and your outerwear. Brighten up a gun club tweed Balmacaan coat with a Panarea, 08h23 soft pink, boost the brownish of a vintage waxed jacket with a Stromboli, 21h57 muted, dark blue or bring contrast to a navy oversized raincoat with a Caprera, 07h17 citrus shade. Once again, the options are endless and the only thing that matters is your mood.

How to tie a 90cm scarf the flamboyant way

Going up the nonchalance scale, tie your 90cm scarf more loosely. More volume around your neck, a deeper knot and those wide, generous tips laying on your chest. More color, more fabric and more texture come into play for a complete reinvention of your outfit and a whole new level of cool. More life really.

How to tie a 90cm scarf playing with colors and prints

We've seen how plain, solid 90cm scarves from Le Isole work with the different tying options offered by our 90cm format. Now, let's find out how prints and graphic compositions from La Collection N°1 and Arcipelago capsule work.

The graphic compositions from our Arcipelago capsule collection allow to play with the Mediterranean shades from Le Isole and create dialogues between them. Depending on what you're wearing, and most particularly the color of your outerwear, you will decide to put an emphasis on that dense Minorca, 17h33 green, that soft Favignana, 10h25 blue or that laid-back Procida, 20h52 smoked red.

La Collection N°1 provides with more traditional color interpretations. Navy, red, pistachio green, cream, they all combine in classic compositions where a white lining reveals color contrast and make it pop. Once again, the color of your outerwear, the shape of your collar, and most importantly how you want to feel will decide how to tie your 90cm scarf.
