Aren't these just darling? Luxury goods behemoth Hermes has crafted a primer on how to tie the perfect knot or transform a silk scarf into a pretty top and more. I came across these 2011 knotting cards recently and couldn't get enough. You can get a set of knotting cards with your next purchase of a Hermes scarf, or any other item--simply ask the SA for a set.

Or, bid on them on eBay. Click "read more" below to see additional pics of this year's knotting cards.

Target's latest collaboration with Italian fashion label Missoni is ideal for the discerning consumer who is also focused on obtaining a good value. Missoni showcases its range in this collection, designing bedding and kitchenware, men's, women's and children's clothing, and even a bicycle. Each piece evinces Missoni's trademark: bold color, chevrons, zigzags and stripes.

“In the ’50s and ’60s, the Missoni brand really developed a voice that transported it out of Italy and into the United States, and that is what the aesthetic is inspired by in the campaign.” - Will Setliff, vice president for marketing at Target

With prices ranging from $3 to $600, with most pieces priced under $40, this collection really is for everyone. Missoni for Target items will become available online and in Target stores September 13 through October 22.

This 400-plus collection is Target's largest designer collaboration to date. Surprising given that Angela Missoni has been quoted as saying: “As Missoni, we have a big name but we are not a huge company, so there’s not much product around.”
