Review: Hecate Scarf by Logandria

Logandria creates deliciously hedonistic 100% mulberry silk scarves, containing softly erotic imagery with mythology and fantasy themes. Her designs are filled with interesting details and meanings, much like a fantastical adult-themed I-Spy book. It’s likely one would be finding something new within the design for some time to come! 
Today I am reviewing the limited edition Hecate scarf which is one of the three designs NIN Luxury Lingerie carries.

Hecate scarf by Logandria

Presentation:
The scarves come in a nice pink gift box, with Logandria’s label embossed in gold. Inside is a helpful instructional card detailing how to provide your scarf with the best care.
 
Imagery:
The design itself features the Greek goddess Hecate in her triple form, clad in gorgeous gold and black lace lingerie (a past collection by Karolina Lakowska). She is surrounded by bound branches, braziers (not to be confused with brasseries. Although those are also present!), a faithful hound and many other intriguing details. The designer has written a summary of the symbolism hidden within this scarf, which you can find here 
With its beautiful cool blues and yellows, Hecate has a more muted colour palette than Logandria’s usual designs  but the colours are still vibrant and very well printed. I have seen many other scarves over the years where the printing turns out a bit fuzzy and undefined, but Logandria’s print lines are sharp. The illustration has been mirror printed (printed on both sides), ensuring its vibrancy.

Material:
Fresh out of the box, the 16 momme weight silk is delightfully crisp. The edges of the scarf are rolled, reminding me of Hermès’ finishing. The designer was kind to also loan me her personal scarves so that I would be able to see how they had worn after several washes. Once washed they become very soft and supple, which being a creature of textural delights, I personally prefer. Either way, the silk is gorgeous and sturdy. To be honest, I had not expected this silk to be as robust as it is! This makes these scarves a purchase that I would be unafraid to wear daily.
Durability:
As mentioned above, the silk seems like a very sturdy weave. I have also experienced several well-loved Logandria scarves that have been purposefully put through the wringer of a very active daily life (worn during hiking trips in the bush, tossed in the bottom of bags, used as a stylish head-covering in the rain). They are in remarkably good condition after all of the above.
Wearability:
With a multitude of options, your imagination is your only limit on how to best wear your scarf. Due to the detail-rich design, you are guaranteed to have something interesting peeking out no matter how you fold and tie it. This scarf measures 90cm x 90cm, which makes it suitable for a wide range of styling choices. Wear it traditionally around your neck, in your hair, as a belt, tied around the handles of a purse, as a free-spirited shirt, or however you desire.
For inspiration, the designer has some very helpful styling videos which you can view on her Instagram. For example, how to wear the scarf as a shirt four different ways.
Hecate and other Logandria designs are currently available for drop-shipping (2-5 days for US customers, European customers can expect delivery in under 2 weeks) via NIN Luxury Lingerie . Arnhem locals, look out for these hitting the store soon!

These scarves were loaned to me by the designer at my request. As always, all of my thoughts are genuine and my own.
