SALZBURG, the city of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and 2 gorgeous HERMES scarves

I threatened to write about Salzburg a while back, so here it is…

Loic Dubigeon’s Salzburg is a gorgeous composition, a beautiful scarf celebrating Salzburg, the city on the Danube, and its son, one of the greatest composers to ever live, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

That same year, 1996, Hermes also issued Hommage a Mozart, coincidence? I think not…

Every year Hermes has a theme and as you may have guessed, 1996 was dedicated to Music.  The same year Zoe Pauwels gave us La Musique des Spheres.

and Madama Claudia Stuhlhofer Mayr Musique des Dieux

There was one more carre celebrating music that same year and you may have guessed already…New Orleans Creole Jazz.

But back to Salzburg…

There is something in Dubigeon’s style that just captures my imagination. At first glance I am instantly transported thousands of miles and find myself dreamily wandering the streets and alleys of Mozart’s lovely city until I find myself at 9 Getreidegasse in front of the Maestro’s birthplace…

9 Getreidegasse, Salzburg where Mozart was born on January 27, 1756

With a Mozart Kugel (chocolate truffle-like candy) in hand, our daughter and I walk silently into the Maestro’s childhood home,  a museum today…

One can spend hours here, of course, as my daughter and I did a couple of years ago.  But at last we tear ourselves away, walk across the Danube, take more photos and settle down at the famous Hotel Sacher, to have a cup of tea and a slice of heaven.  Have I just admitted to loving chocolate?

Whether you are a fan of Mozart or not, the two scarves that have been issued in his honor tell a beautiful story. Rich in detail they are more works of art than a simple accessory.

Grand Cortege a Moscou

What a scarf!!!

I was just writing my dear friend and an avid Hermes collector herself, how amazing this scarf is in person.  She wondered how many screens that must have taken?  Although I do not have the answer to that question, I can tell you that one can’t just quickly glance at it.  The intricate details just draw your eye in…

Le Geographe Hermes Silk Jacquard Carre

Le Geographe, an intricate silk jacquard, was designed by Sandra Laroche, who has created to my knowledge, three additional carres for the Maison Hermes: Au Clair de la Lune, Fleurs d’Hiver and Per Astra Ad Astra being her most recent and perhaps also best known creation.
