British Heraldry Hermes Carre by Rybal

The British Heraldry Hermes scarf was issued in 1981 making it one of four up to that time designs, that pay homage to the British Crown.

Hermes Silk Scarf Queens Jubilee

The first, Queen, was issued to honor the Queen’s first visit to France in 1961 and was re-issued in 1977 as a special issue for the Royal Jubilee, and renamed to Dieu et Mon Droit (God and my Right) Queen’s Silver Jubilee 1977.

Regina Hermes Silk Scarf-9

Regina by Leila Menchari was conceived for Queen Elizabeth’s second visit in 1972.

The British Heraldry, however, is in honor of the Prince of Wales bearing his coat of arms against the backdrop of stunning Gothic architecture.

The British Heraldry was designed by Vladimir Rybaltchenko, AKA Rybal, and was first issued in 1981 and was according to Hermès, “intended to commemorate the Crown Prince’s marriage while calling on the continuity of history.”

Vladimir Rybaltchenko (1939 – 2002) was the great-nephew of Philippe Ledoux and father of Dimitri Rybaltchenko, all renowned Hermès artists.

I have started 3 blogs but haven’t finished 1

I have started to write three separate blogs, one about my experience with a new dry cleaner, (the one recommended by the local Hermes boutique), another one about an elusive scarf and the third one about my little (but steadily growing) video collection.  Alsas neither is finished and worth publishing…

But this weekend I shall make the time and finish them.

I just listed the De Passage a Moscou for sale.  Spending too much frustrating time on the video, just for the resolution to be pixelated!!! I cannot figure out why… very frustrating.

So, I decided to list some new scarves, among them, the Cavaliers Peuls depicting the Fulani Horseman, which was designed by Jean de Fougerolle and first issued in 1997.  A truly beautiful scarf.  There is so much there and my photos once again do not do it justice.  But here they are… enjoy

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.

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.

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.
