Toutsy!

As I was just listing another fabulous scarf by Madame Laurence Bourthoumieux (or Thioune), I realized that she deserves a special recognition here.  Toutsy for short, has created some truly remarkable scarves for the Maison Hermes.  A gifted artist, her first creation I believe to be Tropiques, which was first issued in 1988.

Tropiques was designed by Laurence Toutsy Bourthoumieux and first issued in 1988

The iconic Giverny was issued the following year, 1989.

Since then, Toutsy has designed over twenty scarves for the Maison Hermes and here is a small sampling of her beautiful carres.
