Versatile Hermes


Photography above, Nathaniel Goldberg for Hermes.

The hippie luxe trend continues in a new video from Hermes, Soie sur la Route (Silk on the Open Road.) The story involves three "bohemian heroines" who improvise with their exquisite silk scarves. When I received a link to the video via email, I was reminded of the framed vintage Hermes scarf in Ivanka Trump's dining room, decorated by Emma Jane Pilkington. Some might feel this idea has been done enough now, and no longer looks fresh, but I still love it.

BTW: A while back, Lizzie over at Design Watcher posted some great reissued Vera scarves -- more budget-friendly options -- available through Auto, that could be made into pillows or framed. A sample is shown below.

You can't go wrong with an Hermes scarf. So many uses!
