Hermes Parisienne fashion in 1937, just 100 years after the French luxury house was founded. Decided to create a silk scarf by Robert Dumas, a member of the Hermès family.
He designed the first Carré scarf that he first called “Jeu des Omnibus et Dames Blanches” using woodblock.
I own a blue Hermes scarf for years now and I have never washed it. I only recently ironed it for my Bentley Continental GTC Speed review.
Gold is one of Hermès’ most in-demand colours, first popularised by Grace Kelly in the 1950s. I loved driving through the Cotswolds and being noticed just like Grace kelly would have. I am here to trend set the iconic scarf that even Audrey Hepburn loved to wear.
The most popular designs have been reissued several times, including one of Hermes’ best-loved, the “Brides de gala” scarf, a Hugo Grygkar creation. “One of Hermes’ most iconic scarves, this design has been reinvented endlessly since its creation in 1957,” according to the Hermes website. Did you know that Queen Elizabeth wore the same horse and carriage Hermes scarf when riding her horse for over twenty years? The Queen’s Hermes riding scarf was placed on her beloved Emma’s pony’s saddle as a tribute to the late Monarch.
After watching this, I knew I had to set the monarch trend in the United Kingdom, wearing my vintage Hermes silk scarf.
I also use it as a necklace feature when I am wearing black or strolling with my Bentley beluga travel bag
Bougainvillea color is one of the rarest Hermes colors
The Bougainvillea color is one of the rarest Hermes colors and can be described as a light tone of red with raspberry and pink undertones. This particular color is challenging to find elsewhere and is a tough color to obtain on Clemence leather.
The more you wear your Hermes scarf, the less care it needs! This may seem paradoxical, but wearing it on a regular basis slows the natural tarnishing process, on both gold and silver. With time, your silk scarf will gain a unique patina, the signature of your shared history. I team my silk scarf with a vintage Yves Saint Laurent brooch, 22 gold plated to be exact.
Personal style in the world of luxury for me is creating my own niche style. I assure you not one woman was driving a Bentley Continental GTC Speed wearing a Hermes silk scarf. At fifty I am a master of my own yacht and a tired setter for this very cold winter here in the United Kingdom. When driving the fastest convertible in the world at 650bhp. My hair is all over the place and therefore the Hermes scarf keeps me looking pristine every time I am driving to my luxury Cotswolds House Hotel and Spa
in Chipping Campden.
