HERMES Scarves from 2001 Seasons I & II

I was asked a while back by one of my readers to include an English translation of the Hermès scarf titles.

For efficiency’s sake, I thought it might be a good idea to also include links to photos, the artists as well as year of issue.  I am starting with the year 2001, seasons I (spring/summer) and II (fall/winder).

This is a work in progress and more titles will be added as time allows.

Thank you for your understanding.  Corrections and suggestions are always welcome:
