Annie Faivre just does not seem to be able to design a “bad” carre. 🙂
Many of her designs are highly sought after and collected worldwide.
So is the case with her Aux Pays des Épices, In the Land of Spices, Hermes carre from the 2001/2002 Fall Winter Collection.
“How dull would our dishes be without all those grains, cloves, berries and seeds which heighten things, just as reputations are heightened. Glory be to adventurers of ancient repute who conquered for the spices beyond horizon. To bring them back to kings and cooks they faced storms, endured fever, fought serpents and suffered privation. They were heros, whose exploits fed our dreams before seasoning our tables.“

And now I will let madame Faivre’s creation speak for itself…enjoy
