VINCI – We offer the largest collection of

Authentic VINCI Hermes scarves

The Vinci carre was designed by Francoise Heron and first issued in 1958 and then re-issued ten years later.  We are proud to offer you the largest collection of these stunning scarves from this second early issue. Hermès began to copyright and add care tags to their scarves in the 60s.

Intricate and detailed scrolls create a monochromatic scarf that is both interesting as well as perfect for tying in many different ways. From playful to sophisticated, sleek and simple to a luxurious layered look, this is the perfect scarf for both women and men.

We are very fortunate to have several of the early issue Vinci scarves available for purchase.  All in exquisite or near perfect condition, with vintage copyrights and care tags.

Ecuries, The Inspiration behind this coveted Hermes scarf

Écuries, Stables, has, as the name suggests, a very equestrian themes, so popular with many vintage Hermès carrés.  As the name promises, we see horses, all twenty of them, in their respective stables.

Hugo Grygkar, The Father of the Carre, as I like to call him, designed this fabulous scarf in 1947, which was reissued in 1993 and both issues are quite sought after by both Hermès aficionados and collectors alike.


The inspiration for this highly sought after scarf comes from two sources, an oil painting by Théodore Géricault (1791-1824) – Cinq chevaux vus par la croupe dans une écurie and the vast collection of artifacts from the personal collection of Émile Hermès.  

If you have been reading my blog, you may remember, that this collection has been the inspiration to so many early Hermès scarves and is now the Émile Hermès Museum, situated above the Hermès flagship store on 24 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré.

Hard to imagine, that a child’s toy from the turn of the century (yes, we are talking the early 1900s 🙂 here) would be forever immortalized in one of the most prized carrés.

But then again, maybe it was Hugo Grygkar’s spirit of creativity and boundless innovation, that allowed him to take an ordinary object and transform it into a wearable piece of art sought and coveted by many the world over.

As always, merci Monsieur Grygkar..
