Une jolie écharpe

by cecylia on October 26, 2012

Hands up if you knew what the title of this post is without consulting Google? Well you my friend, are quite the linguist. Bravo! I must admit, I had trouble thinking up of an enticing title for this post. Anything would have been better than ‘A Hokum Scarf Give-Away!” Anything in French, that is. So there you have it, we got to the crux of this post within 10 seconds of you reading. And yes, all of these accessories came for an outing just for the sake of a scarf. But not any scarf. A Hokum scarf.


Is there anything more synonymous with exotic getaways than silk scarves? Probably not.

Karla Spetic top (similar styles here) / Hokum Speedway Blossom scarf as skirt / vintage shades, earrings, leather necklace, bangle, bag & ring / Salita Matthews necklace & bracelet / Miss Sixty shoes

Winner of Debut’s  Best Accessory Label, this is the scarf label that wowed me during my reporting stint at Fashion Exposed. The name ‘Hokum‘ draws “a desired response from an audience”. And fittingly so, the beautiful vibrant designs, intricate hand-finished hems and deluxe packaging makes Hokum a covetable piece for the scarf connoisseur.

Of course there are countless ways you can tie the knot (no pun intended I assure you), around your neck, but why not let your hips have some fun too? You can wear it as a wrap-around skirt, knot it as a bag or tie it as a top. The possibilities are endless. Original artwork, inspired by travel, I give you Hokum. I’m serious. I am giving away ANY Hokum scarf of your choosing, courtesy of Hokum. Funny that.

Just head [HERE] to pick your favourite style and leave a comment below with your favourite style. Tres facile! Comp ends 12 November.

我在Fashion Exposed第一次见到Hokum围巾。Hokum的意思是“让观众欲望”。的确,Hokum围巾带着美丽的充满活力的设计,手工精制的折边和豪华的包装让人见人爱,尤其是围巾鉴赏家。 系围巾的方法很多。既然称为“围巾”,就到处能够“围”。除了戴在头颈上,腰上也能围。我将它用三种形式穿成裙子,你还可以将这围巾穿成上衣,戴在头上,甚至做成包. 可能性无穷! 围巾的版画是原始艺术品,​​灵感来自于旅游。

谢谢Hokum, 我们将送给一位忠实的读者任何一条你喜欢的围巾!请到这里挑选。你只需要在下留言,包括你最喜欢的款式。比赛到十一月十二日结束。

Did you spot the 3 different ways I wore the Hokum scarf as a skirt?

Oh la la! Tough decision but I’d love me a Speedway-Storm please to ride off into the sunset with.
Loved those giant palm trees in the photos Cecylia! I do love a good palm tree.

cecylia October 28, 2012 at 10:11 am

awww I can just see you with the scarf around your head in a mUstang speeding off into the sunset with Palm trees in view :) Miss you darling!

Jayne October 26, 2012 at 11:23 am

Baroness in Ruby is definitely my style!

Melody October 26, 2012 at 12:03 pm

Speedway Storm! What gorgeous scarves. I’m in love!

cecylia October 28, 2012 at 10:11 am

Glad you like them so much Melody- thank you for entering!

Emma Hill October 26, 2012 at 2:49 pm

I love Shangri-La in Iris. My nana’s name was Iris and she was such a stylish lady. I’m sure that if she was still with us she’d be eyeing off one of these gorgeous scarves for her collection.

cecylia October 28, 2012 at 10:10 am

aww that’s so sweet Emma! Iris is not a common name anymore- which makes it so unique and chic :)

Dasha Gold October 26, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Hello sweetheart, thought I will check out your latest post! Gorgeous colors and wow I love your jewelry <3 Catch up soon sweets! xx D.G.

cecylia October 28, 2012 at 10:10 am

THank you DG! I love seeing you on my blog- such an honour!

Elwyn October 26, 2012 at 5:36 pm

Très suave en effet!
…. and could be beautiful to frame as well!

cecylia October 28, 2012 at 10:09 am

ahh now there’s an idea- I am yet to frame scarves- one day :) It’s on my to-do list!

Christina October 26, 2012 at 5:57 pm

Une jolie outfit i would say. And yes i speak french. Un petit peu. And well the scarf is great but the necklace is really something else. Must have one.

cecylia October 28, 2012 at 10:10 am

aww thank you Christina – indeed Salita Matthews’ necklace (it’s SILK too!) makes my heart melt

Elwyn October 26, 2012 at 6:59 pm

Whoops, forgot to add my favourite!!
So very hard to choose from such a fabulour range of great designs, but … Shangri-la-Vermilion is an absolute stunner!!

cecylia October 28, 2012 at 10:08 am

THank you Elwyn so glad that you love them too- Shangrila is such a pretty design!!

Mica October 26, 2012 at 8:04 pm

Oh that first photo I thought the scarf actually was a skirt! I was going to comment on the lovely printed skirt you were wearing, hehe! :)

As nice as the print on your scarf is, I think the Shangri-la in Iris is my favourite :)


cecylia October 28, 2012 at 10:08 am

You’re so sweet Mica, I adore reading your comments. Scarves are great like that- you can change them into anything you like really!

Kate fissenden October 26, 2012 at 8:50 pm

cecylia October 28, 2012 at 10:07 am

Berty Morales October 27, 2012 at 7:33 am

cecylia October 28, 2012 at 10:06 am

Amber October 27, 2012 at 8:29 am

they’re all so beautiful, but shangri-la iris is my fave I think

cecylia October 28, 2012 at 10:05 am

I love the name ShangriLa too :)

Kylie October 27, 2012 at 8:48 am

I would love to win a hokum scarf. They are all beautiful. It would be hard to choose which one. Speedway storm is probably one of my favourites.

cecylia October 28, 2012 at 10:05 am

THank you for entering Kylie- glad that you love it too- Speedway is my favourite too!! :)

Rosario October 27, 2012 at 2:28 pm

cecylia October 30, 2012 at 4:32 pm

thanks Cindy! How have you been lovely?

Feegle November 2, 2012 at 8:04 pm

It’s a tough choice but I think I’ll have to say Speedway Storm is my favourite.

Ann Hidayat November 4, 2012 at 3:58 am

All of the scarves are beautiful so it was hard to pick just one. I’ve settled for http://www.shophokum.com/product/speedway-storm:)

cecylia November 4, 2012 at 10:54 am

the scarf I’m wearing is the Speedaway-storm too! You have great taste!

MissK November 5, 2012 at 4:27 am

I love the Baroness – Ruby.

cecylia November 5, 2012 at 3:46 pm

Well done, thank you for entering!! xx

Kim November 5, 2012 at 8:10 pm

I love Shangri-la- Iris. They are all so beautiful! And you wear them so well :-)

cecylia November 7, 2012 at 7:57 am

thank you Kim! They are so easy to wear because of their beautiful and colourful designs- they go with everything too :)

Emily November 6, 2012 at 9:00 pm

I want them all before even seeing the scarves, the names are fantastic! But the Ophelia Apricot has gorgeous variety across the one scarf. I think it could be worn many different ways. Perfect for the many changes of spring, and my many changes of mind with outfits!

cecylia November 7, 2012 at 7:07 am

lol I know whart you mean! I found it so difficult to choose too! You’re so celever, you must show us how you wear the scarf if you win it! xx

Winnie November 7, 2012 at 12:36 am

Shangri-la- Vermilion! Very pretty! Would be even better if they could personalize each scarf.

cecylia November 7, 2012 at 7:06 am

ah you’re right- with your initials – like a monogram?
