Here's everything you need to know about this luxe, versatile accessory.

Much like its big sister, the Hermès scarf, the Twilly is a highly sophisticated, multiwear accessory. You've probably seen them worn as hair ties, bracelets, or around the handles of designer bags. Hermès is practically synonymous with luxury itself, and their handbags boast an unparalleled elegance. Despite this, the brand is not stiff– their scarves and twillys are youthful, exciting, and quite strange, even, as they feature puzzling, bright patterns, which are often irresistable. Due to their petite size and dazzling range of designs, the Twillys are prime collectible items, and any fashion girl's wardrobe would benefit from having one (or 10!)  

If you are thinking of purchasing a Twilly, here is everything you need to know. 

What is the Hermès Twilly scarf? 

First launched in the late 1930s, the Twilly scarves are necktie-like scarves that can be worn a hundred ways. They come in idiosyncractic, unpredictable designs from artists all over the world. Flora, fauna, geometric patterns, mythological figures, and other motifs fabulously appear on different Twillys.

The Twilly gets its name from the word "twill", a weaving technique used for soft, flowy fabrics. They're made of one hundred percent silk, which makes them all the more high-end. To create the fabrics, a methodical process of silkscreen printing, hand-rolling, and hand-stitching is accomplished by artisans. 

A Twilly can be worn as a bracelet, scarf, hair tie, bag embellishment, and others.

Twillys are among the several charming accessories peddled by Hermès. Now, teeny tiny Birkin bag charms have emerged, as well as childlike horse-shaped keychains– adorable nods to the brand's history as a saddle, boot, and bag supplier for equestrians. Customers will enjoy Hermès' cohesive approach to their products: In 2017, perfumer Christine Nagel created the Twilly D'hermes, a spicy, girlish fragrance meant to embody the spirit of the Twilly scarves.

What are the different kinds of Hermes twillys? 

The Twillys come in different lengths and widths, which is convenient to know if you have a particular preference for how you'll be wearing them. First off, we have the classic Twilly, which measures 2” by 32”. Next, the Maxi-Twilly Slim, a thicker scarf, measures 4” by 70.9”. Lastly, the longest and thinnest Twilly, the Twillon, measures 1.2” by 76”. 

The classic Twillies, as seen here, are gorgeous statement pieces that add spice to even the simplest outfits. Colorful and quirky, Twillies are addicting style pieces.
