Kimonos et Inros Hermès Carré

One of Annie Faivre‘s early designs, the Kimonos et Inros is much simpler than her later designs. It also lacks her by now famous monkey.

Kimonos et Inros Hermes silk scarf was designed by Annie Faivre in 1986 – AVAILABLE

In her design, Madame Faivre features four Japanese kimonos and several inros.

An Inrō is an ornamental box many times with several compartments designed to store personal items such as medicines or seals.
