Hermès is all about horses and most of their products are inspired by the equestrian world. Even the logo of the famous French high-end fashion house that manufactures leather products, perfumes and apparel depicts a Duc carriage with horse. The horse carriage represents the company’s beginnings as a horse saddlery manufacturer. Hermès is also synonym to most outstanding silk scarves. The latest from its stable is ‘a cheval sur mon carré’ which means a horse on my scarf. The fashion house has launched a limited-edition version of its iconic silk scarf to woo its clients as well as to support welfare of the horses.
The 90cm blue silk scarf bears a design originally created by deputy creative director Bali Barret in 2006. It brilliantly bears the silhouette of a horse made out of equestrian-themed Hermès scarves, on a background of horseshoes. The latest edition of this design will be issued in a limited edition of 300.
Get high on style as well as help the brand support the well-being of the horses by picking up the $500 scarf which will be available at Hermes boutiques throughout the UK and Ireland. It can also picked online at the brand’s dedicated scarf microsite, La Maison des Carrés. Proceeds from the sale will support World Horse Welfare’s work in rescuing and re-homing neglected and abused horses through its four rescue centres across the UK.
