Hommage a l’Explorateur Sir Ernest Shackleton

Here for now are some photos of the one and only Hommage a l’Explorateur Sir Ernest Shackleton by Zoe Pauwels, a Special Edition/Issue scarf from 2005.

More about this truly special and considered by many a GRAIL Hermès carré a little later. But in the meantime here are some photos for your enjoyment…

Le Jardin De Leila HERMÈS© SCARf – 2014

Le Jardin De Leila HERMÈS© carre by François Houtin 2014 (S05 Blanc/Noir/Anthracite – personal collection)

I have always loved gardens. Manicured or wild, makes no difference to me.

Since I can remember gardens have played a big role in my growing up and to this day, there is nothing better than putzing around the garden with dirt under my nails.

My aunt had the most spectacular garden of them all. Only occasionally would I be invited in, the small picket fence gate closing softly behind me and ahead of me a world so beautiful my young heart could barely fathom.

Gravel crunching under my feet, Bleeding Hearts and Columbines nodded at me from both sides.

So of course when I saw François Houtin‘s “garden”, I could not resist.

If you share my love of gardens, then allow me to share Houtin’s artistry without further ado.

I will end with a video that coincidentally, a dear friend shared with me just earlier today, Untermyer Gardens: Inspiration, History and Restoration.

Les Quatre Saisons Hermes Carre

Les Quatre Saisons Hermes Carre by Robert Dallet, the very gifted and self-taught artist, who has brought us so many popular scarves like the Sichuan, Tanzanie, Jungle Love and many more. For other scarves by Monsieur Dallet, please follow this link.

Here is his much beloved Les Quatre Saisons Hermes Scarf from the 1994/1995 Collection.

From The Le Carré Hermès Paris Booklet:

The swallows have come back, the days are getting longer, the countryside is blooming. It’s spring! But summer is already here, like a flight of pink flamingos in the skies of the Camargue. Little by little, azure glows with purple and gold: autumn has arrived. The squirrel stores his nuts, the duck flown in from the north alight on the pond. The woodcock slips away into the dusk. Mists float over the meadows, Winter unfolds its cloak of white, and all is at an end – until the cycle begins again.
