Description

The Hermes scarf is one of the greatest fashion icons of all time. Worn by royalty and celebrities, coveted and admired, and now avidly collected, this deceptively simple square of silk is much more than just an accessory: it is the stuff of legend. Now for the first time the heritage and influence of House of Hermes is fully explored, from the first scarfs debut in 1937 right up to the present day.show more
