Hermes "Cheval Fleuri" silk twill Scarf 70cm by Henri d'Origny in a black colorway.
D'Origny got his inspiration for this scarf from a 16th century Italian painter Giuseppe Arcimboldo, who created portraits by combining unexpected objects. A basket of vegetables or fruit, a catch of multiple varieties of fish, or a pile of books, would become a portrait whose true nature remained hidden at first glance. Henri d'Origny follows that concept by making a fresh bouquet of flowers as his subject-matter of choice. A lady side-saddle rider is described in iris and daffodil flowers, riding a prancing horse, all drawn in an array of petals, foliage and posy ribbons, extending to the egret in flight, and the leaping dog.
