Hermès is a great design master. Its design is creative and implicit, full of personal color while maintaining the luxury brand status of Hermes. Its every collection is highly expected and unexpected.
This time, Hermes takes advantage of the Japanese folk art and has come out with a witty tribute to its iconic scarf designs in the form of a chic origami set. Out of question, it makes a good interpretation of the traditional Japanese folk art. The set includes several sheets of origami paper in bright colors, adorned with scarf prints in various motifs on one side, and deep-hued Rothko-like color blocks on the other. Very artistic and charming.
The sheets are collected in a handstitched black saddle leather envelope which also features the origami patterns. The set is presented in a black lacquer box, priced at about $750. Compared with other Hermes goods, this set is almost a bargain. Though it’s not practical, it adds bright touch to your luxury collection.
Hermès made its first scarf in 1937, and the eye-catching accessories were an immediate hit, since sported by worn by style icons such as Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Catherine Deneuve, and Jackie Kennedy. Up to now, Hermes scarf is still hit and a must-have for fashion lovers.
