I simply adore this scarf! The oversized ginkgo leaf jacquard took my breath away the first time I saw it.
Perhaps it will do the same for you…
Here are brief background on the Inspiration for this carre:
Daimyo were powerful territorial lords and therefore the Princes of the Rising Sun, i.e. Japan. This carre pays homage to the Princes of Japan, Princes of the Rising Sun
Samurai swords, cranes, and the gingko leaf are all symbols of Japan and are so beautifully displayed in Madame Faconnet’s scarf.
Rich in detail, this scarf is dramatic and beautiful when worn. The gingko leaf pattern of the jacquard silk adds luster and allows the scarf to drape beautifully.
A special addition to any Hermes collection!
