MIKOUX Silk Scarves

I was recently introduced to MIKOUX scarves by one of the brands cofounders.  I am a huge fan of scarves in general and love to wear them no matter the season, so I was delighted when I was contacted to receive a scarf for review.

In the Fall of 2011 MIKOUX was founded by husband and wife team.  The couple wanted to use their experience in fashion and design  to create their favorite accessory, scarves. The name MIKOUX reflects the founder's individual ethnic backgrounds and is a mix of European and Asian influences.

MIKOUX scarves are all 100% silk that are sourced and produced exclusively in Como, Italy. They use a combination of traditional methods, silk screen print, and the latest technologies in digital printing to provide the best print results of their original artwork. 
MIKOUX currently offers three design options; Gros bisous de MikouxEl Baile Flamenco, and La Vita è Bella.  All three are 100% Italian Silk and measure 47" x 47" (120cm x 120cm).  

The El Baile Flamenco and La Vita è Bella are both so colorful with many bright  and eye-catching colors; while the Gros bisous de Mikoux is a classic black and white design.  All three styles are so intricately patterned with very feminine designs that when wrapped around the neck, one might not even realize what they are looking at.


MIKOUK was kind enough to send me the El Baile Flamenco scarf.  I was extremely excited as I love all the different colors and fan motif. I also really love the guitars that are on one of the fans. It is so unexpected and a little edgy.


 The packaging alone was so nice.  I love getting pretty packages with bows so that was such a nice touch.  As this is a luxury scarf, the packaging was in line with other high end brands.




 The El Baile Flamenco is adorned with a 4 fan pattern.  Three of the four fans have a different design with the fourth fan plain.  The patterns include guitars, geishas and I believe the other (pictured on the bottom left) are dresses.

I really love all the colors that are used in this scarf.  The way they have incorporated so many different colors and made it all fit so well is absolutely stunning.  I am not sure if you can tell just how many colors are in this from the pictures.  There are different shades of orange, light blue, navy blue, purple, mint green, oxblood, yellow, white.  Every time I look at it I find another color.



I wore this to work last Friday and received so many compliments.  As it is already so colorful and full of design, I paired it with trouser jeans, a white tee and beige cardigan.  It felt so nice on my neck I didn't want to take it off.  I would probably wear it every day if I wasn't afraid of ruining it!



One of the things that I love to do, especially in the spring and summer, is tie a bright silk scarf to my purse.  It is one way to add a little flair to an otherwise casual outfit.

These scarves are 100% so they are very delicate and should be handled as such.  I keep mine folded in the box when not using it. 

MIKOUX silk scarves are available at the official website www.Mikoux.com and select retailers.
