Since 1837, generation after generation, Hermès has followed a dual thread – on the one hand the painstaking work of the craftsman in his workshop, and on the other the lifestyles of its customers.
The freedom to create, the constant quest for beautiful materials, and the transmission of exceptional know-how – which enable the creation of useful, and elegant objects which stand the test of time – forge the uniqueness of Hermès. As proud equestrians, there’s even more to it: Hermès has produced numerous pieces inspired by their equestrian past! We bring you some new products that definitely caught my eye.
THE TWO HORSES SHAWL: United in a pose of tender affection, the two horses depicted on this carre are captured in a drawing of remarkable simplicity and expressivity. In just a few lines, the artist – himself a rider and horse trainer – conveys his perfect knowledge of their postures and curves. Shawl in cashmere and silk with hand-rolled edges (70% cashmere, 30% silk). It’s the ideal companion for wrapping up on cold days.
THE LEATHER JACKET – INSPIRED BY EQUESTRIANS: Leather jacket in deerskin for the autumn season. Make you look chic! Be a proud equestrian!
THE SILK SCARF: In her Robe du soir scarf, Florence Manlik drew a portrait of a horse in passementerie. Braiding, cord and piping composed its mane, the shadows of its coat and the contours of its harness. In this new interpretation of the design, clean lines, bold flat tints of color and renewed energy take this composition into a dynamic and vibrant sphere. The design is offered this season in a new double-sided version which plays on the contrasts of vivid colors still further
THE WOOLEN BLANKET : Inspired by the blankets used on racehorses in the 19th century, the Rocabar motif first appeared on an ocher-coloured woolen blanket with navy blue and coral stripes. Since then, variations have been produced in wool, cashmere and silk.
