Scarves With Stories

Apr 04, 2019

Every piece of Hermes's silk scarves is like a storyteller, leading us to explore the world of fantasy and the unique universe. Following this spirit, Hermès's scarf designer team is more than just an artist. It is more like a writer. They explore stories of different themes and constantly create many beautiful masterpieces about the world. The most wonderful story. From exotic travel themes to ancient myths, each scarf has a different mood, style and sentiment that takes you to a magical world of imagination.


For the enthusiasm for horse racing, equestrianism, travel and family activities, Emile Hermes has been involved in the design of the family for a long time, including the 19th century horse-patterned works inspired by Uruguay. In the center of the pattern, the ponytail strap and the breastplate strap hold the saddle firmly, and the stables are placed on both sides. The wider strap in the middle provides a visually decorative effect for the overall design. The reins are entirely hand-crafted with a single or double badge pattern, all of which reflect the purity of their country. In the vast space of the southern steppes of Uruguay, the fertile grasslands are also home to the most important partner of the shepherd, the horse.


This "KELLY EN PERLES" scarf is based on the work of the 1997 Cameroonian artist. The silky scarf with texture is inlaid with beaded decoration, just like a relief.

Craftsmen used a traditional African ethnic handicraft to connect extremely small beads. The center of the scarf is a miniature Kelly handbag, the blue diamonds are placed on both sides of the handle, just like the eyes are stunned; the curve of the handle is as vivid as the mouth, the overall looks like a piece Smiley face.

In addition to drawing on the traditional patterns used by African tribes to make pottery and textiles, the designer also decorated geometric patterns in the blank spaces of the scarves, with round, diamond, parallel lines and some other shapes. The iconic H letters are also scattered on the canvas. The four corners.


The 12 o'clock bell rings, and midnight Paris looks so peaceful and calm. A beam of signal light from the Eiffel Tower shines on the oversized "H", which seems to suggest that something is quietly happening. The hidden and invisible proud horse is above the Hermès building, ready to transform into the air. We are anxiously waiting for him to leap into the air, as if a modern version of Pegasus comics is present in front of us. On this silk scarf, his rider seemed to stand in an inconspicuous position, such as hiding in the window and watching him from a distance, watching him wearing Superman costumes ready to go. What will happen next? The next time you come back from the journey of Super H.


Behind the scenes of the circus, the conductor put on his impeccable frog jacket. After a small trumpet playing and percussion instrument, he will introduce the artists who take turns performing today. He biceps with the clown, everything is an active atmosphere and wins the laughter of the audience. The jaguar and its partner are practicing at the rhythm of the music; in the huge circular wheel, the trapeze is ready to be launched; the tiger is balanced on the large ball; the acrobat bends himself into The arch is ready to pass through the hoop.

The modern circus originated in the 18th century equestrian show, and the British Philip Astley brought the performance to the Faubourg du Temple in Paris. The Franconi family followed, and gradually the large horse circle was replaced by a small area of juggling, acrobats and clowns.


More and more popular horse racing, from the 19th century, the traditional costume of the jockey began to transform and simplify. The heavy riding jacket was replaced by a lighter, brighter silk, and the boots were replaced with slippered buttons, and even the black jockey hat with elegant ribbons gave way to the familiar jockey cap. All of this has greatly improved the comfort of the riders, with the bright and colorful silk of the riders all over the racecourse. More and more horse racers were involved, leading to a dazzling array of colors and patterns in the racecourse until 1990 when new rules emerged. The riders ran back and forth in the center of the competition venue, as if they were festivals, and every corner had a lucky horseshoe mark. Because even the most talented people sometimes need some luck.


In the main works of the National Naval Museum in Paris, such a luxurious and beautiful, carved stern began in the seventeenth century. The ship we are seeing now is the Royal Fleet of Louis XIV. This extraordinary line of elegant and luxuriously decorated ships is sailed by a large team. The ship was reserved for the commander of the fleet and did not sail for the first time until the beginning of the 18th century. Inspired by Hugo Grygkar, the sculpture of the hull is engraved with a sculpture with a sea god blowing a conch, which symbolizes the horn of the king's glory. They usually think this is the work of Pierre Puget. Pierre Puget is a very famous French artist from Marseille who has studied and polished his sculpture art in Florence and Rome for many years. In the nineteenth century, his strong style earned him the reputation of "French Michelangelo".


The subtleties of the line, with a single touch, can turn into a winding curve, or a complex slender scroll and a vivid pattern... a whip that is woven with leather is entangled with delicate lines, using embroidery Depicts the head, ears and shiny mane of four horses. The symbols appear in a interlocking way, connecting the world of men and horses. Combining in an infinite sequence is like intertwining all the thread ends, and it is perfectly and complicated.
