Épisodes de la Chasse à Courre Hermes scarf by Charles Jean Hallo 1961

Hermes Silk Scarf Episodes de la Chasse a Courre 1961 RARE-13

Perhaps by now you and I, both, realize how much I LOVE Charles Hallo.

I too, like so many of you, love animals.  So, hunting is not an option for me personally.  Although I had uncles, who were avid hunters. I preferred the zoo to a shotgun and I grew up with so many animals, domestic and farm and some wild.  Dogs, cats, rabbits, geese, pigeons, deer whose mother had been killed, a baby chick owl, I am sure I am forgetting many.  Hedgehog, yes! I gave a baby hedgehog  a “bath” once, until my Grandma caught me and put an end to that! And how can I forget the chickens. I once had a blind chick as a pet…

Anyway, I have been working in my studio here, putting a video together, posting, answering emails, blogging when I realized how touched I am by Monsieur Hallo’s work.  Yes, I absolutely adore the Courbettes e Cabrioles that I just posted a short video of, but there is something “personal”, something that strikes a cord when I see and hold a Hallo scarf.  I was not aware of it per se until I just listed his Episodes de la Chasse à Courre from 1961.  Mesmerized, I went over every detail of his carre.  Would not want to miss a single line.  Could it be my fond memories of times gone by?  Could it be the pen drawings of my very talented cousin, whose deer leapt of his note book pages?

Well whatever it is, I hope that you too will enjoy this latest addition to our Charles Jean Hallo Collection…

Take a journeys through time in Pierre Marie’s Le Laboratoire du Temps Laboratory.  You will be mazed whom you will find and what you will discover along the way.

Is Leonardo painting the Mona Lisa? Do I hear Mozart playing the piano? And over there is that Mr. Armstrong?  “How does it feel to be the first man to walk on the moon?” I want to ask.

Of course there is room for whimsy in a time laboratory, too as we spy a shopper leaving Hermes in 2012 and in 1937, the birth year of the carre, Émile-Maurice Hermes is inspecting one of his store windows.

Parures de Samouraïs HERMES Silk Scarf 2017

As I reflect on 2017, I need to share the one scarf from last year that stole my heart – immediately.

As many of you know, my true love belongs to the vintage Hermes scarves! But every so often a new one comes along that steals my heart.  And when I wandered last summer into Hermes, my eyes immediately fell upon Aline Honore’s creation.  As a matter of fact when I was asked which scarf I wanted to see, I muttered “this one, please” pointing at the amazing Parures de Samouraïs.  As the store clerk unfolded it in front of me, the vibrant colors were simply mesmerizing.  A rainbow of pinks and blues with a hint of chartreuse and raspberry filled the entire store.  Like a small child my eyes were dashing across the scarf from one amazing detail to the next.  I regained my senses, when I heard, “And would you like to see anything else?” “No”, I heard myself almost yelling…

With my orange tote in hand, I was skipping happily back to my car.

If you have not seen it, it really is spectacular and the detail astounding.

Apparently, I was not the only one smitten with this carre as it quickly sold out worldwide.

Enjoy…
