I am always interested in seeing how the Maison Hermes reinvents some of the Classics and this season there are several old timers that have received a new and perhaps more up to date look: Les Cles, Eperon d’Or, Brides de Gala and Ex Libris, are all iconic Hermes carres and have been for decades.
Here are links to the reinvented Les Cles, the Eperon d’Or as a 22″ x 22″ bandana, a 55″ x 55″ large silk carre and a 8″ x 88″ maxi twilly.
The new Brides de Gala scarves also come in various colorways and sizes and below are photos of authentic vintage Brides de Gala scarves for comparison.

Ex Libris, another Hugo Grygkar creation was first issued in 1946. This great carre has long been loved by many and due to its popularity re-issued numerous times. This season Hermes offers a 22″ x 22″ bandana, the Ex-Libris Vichy Arashi, a 36” x 36″ carre dyed with natural indigo pigments in Bangladesh.
Whether you prefer the original vintage carres of yesterday or love the latest naturally dyed recreations, you have chosen the one and only silk scarf ever produced that is both timeless, classy and an icon of exquisite taste anywhere and anytime.
So no matter what color or size, an Hermes scarf is always the perfect accessory!
