Rendered here in baby pink and cream, the motif was designed by Jeremiah Jacob Kuany in 2002. 100% Silk. Artist: Jeremiah Jacob Kuany. Learn More
The Napoleon scarf, the first edition of which appeared in 1963, was designed by Philippe Ledoux, and is an intriguing combination of imperial symbolism and Napoleonic legend. Mounted on a background of golden bees, the design brings together all of the typical elements: two French flags and their imperial eagles, besides which hang the First Consul dresscoat (left) and Napoleon’s chasseur à cheval uniform (right). Further down the design, the First Consul and Coronation swords can be seen, as well as the Grand Collier of the Légion d’Honneur, two sabres from the Egyptian campaign and, most importantly, the mythical bicorne hat. Five lockets, inspired by some of the most famous paintings depicting the period, evoke the great moments of the Emperor’s life: top-left, the Crossing of the St Bernard Pass (by Jacques-Louis David); top-right, the presentation of honorary sabres at Marengo (by Antoine Gros); bottom-left, Napoleon injured at Ratisbon (by Pierre-Claude Gautherot); bottom-right, the Battle of Wagram (by Horace Vernet). At the centre is a depiction of the arrival at the coronation ceremony at Notre-Dame Cathedral on 2 December 1804 (taken from an engraving in the Livre du Sacre). Plotting a course halfway between glorification and legend, the Napoleon scarf is the perfect embodiment of Hermès’s exploration and exploitation of the imperial iconographic canon. Learn More
MARE NOSTRUM, NAVY, Size: 90CM explores the treasures of the sea. Look for fish, marine life, and ancient ocean gods and goddesses Scarf of the Moment post is about Mare Nostrum, designed by Annie Faivre for Hermès. The title is “Our Sea” in Latin and is the name that the Romans gave to the Mediterranean. This 90cm silk twill scarf shows a range of mythological, architectural, plant and animal images set into a mosaic-like background, which looks a little like crazy paving! Many of these images are whimsical and fun and they reward detailed examination. This central design is then surrounded by what appears to be a ceramic water pipe with open fish mouths as outflows. An inner border is composed of stylised palm trees. Learn More
