Grands Fonds Hermès carre by Annie Faivre

Grands Fonds Hermes Scarf – Vintage
Designed by Annie Faivre in 1992

Annie Faivre, a longtime contributor for the French Fashion House, designed the beautiful and much loved carre Grands Fonds, Deep Sea, in 1992, the Year by the Sea. Each year Hermes has a theme and designs become part of that theme. Other scarves that year included Azulejos, Christophe Colomb Decouvre l’Amerique, Le Geographe, Musee, Vent Portant, La Vie Precieuse de la Mediterranee, Vive le Vent and Marine Naive.

According to the Le Carre Hermès Paris booklet, the sea is a “source of life and mother of man’s imagination”. And it is madame Faivre’s imagination that transforms a simple piece of silk into a fascinating world under the sea. With her famous stylized technique, the Grands Fonds overflows with detail and her four exotic fish, surrounded by other colorful sea creatures, come to life.

Aux Pays des Épices Hermes carre

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 SpicesHermes carre from the 2001/2002 Fall Winter Collection.

Aux Pays des Epices Hermes Silk Scarf_-12

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.

Jardins d’Hiver – Winter Gardens

Our neighbors had a small octagonal gazebo, the kind you find in old European gardens tucked underneath a tree at the end of a winding path…

It was painted white and made of wood. I remember the intricate scrolls that came down from its green roof. The windows that swung out allowed cool summer breezes to pass through as the four of us re-enacted every fairytale known to us.

With summer passing our castle became the winter home to all the potted plants our grandmamas tried to protect from winter frosts.

I cannot honestly say, which memories I am more fond of, the lazy afternoons playing Snow White or the winter garden our castle transformed into every October.

So it is no wonder that when Hermes introduced Annie Faivre’s Jardins d’Hiver carre in 2007, it was love at first sight.

The caledon green is in my opinion the best colorway for this design, albeit not the right one for me. I have held onto this scarf much longer than I should have and it is time for someone else to enjoy it and yes, wear it 🙂

So without any further ado, I present to you Jardins d’Hiver…
