How much history can one piece of fabric contain? Decades, if the object in question is a silk Hermès scarf. Over the years the carré has garnered many an iconic follower the likes of Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy.
The renowned French maison was founded in 1837 as a workshop in the Grands Boulevards area of Paris and a century later the silk foulard was introduced, with each print pattern years in the designing.
The carré is a versatile accessory that offers infinite possibilities for experimentation (apparently it can be worn in 36 different ways), on the fine line between art and fashion. Today the scarf is a collector’s item for style enthusiasts and those who want to own a piece of history. And it is to them that yoox.com dedicates its selection of unique foulards, all exclusively vintage. Unmissable.
