Fully restored, together they have been welcoming visitors to Versailles since 2009.

Marche Flottant du Lac Inle II by Dimitri Rybaltchenko

The Floating Market of Lake Inle II by Dimitri Rybaltchenko is a detail of his 1998 design, titled Marche Flottant du lac Inle.

The Marche Flottant du Lac Inle II is a beautiful close up of the original design and was part of the Spring Summer 2002 Collection.

Here we are so close to that we can almost hear the hustle and bustle on this freshwater lake located in today’s Myanmar. Lake Inle is home to approximately 70,000 people, who live in four cities and numerous small villages along the lake’s shores and on the lake itself.

Transportation on the lake is traditionally by small boats, whereby the women sit cross legged at the stern using the oar with their hands.

As the lake is covered by flaoting plants and reeds, local fishermen practice a distinctive rowing style which enables them to see. Standing at the stern on one leg and wrapping the other leg around the oar provides the rower with a view beyond the reeds. 

In addition to fishing, farming takes place in floating gardens whereby farmers gather up lake-bottom weeds and turn them into floating beds. Anchored by bamboo poles these gardens are incredibly fertile and produce anything from rice to tomatoes.

Dimitri Rybaltchenko beautifully captures Burmese life on Lake Inle.

Here in a beautiful theme appropriate colorway (col.06) of pale blues punctuated with vibrant orange and purple hues and verdant greens.

It has been crazy to say the least

I am way, way behind on my blogging!

So many ideas and so many other things that seem to get in the way. Bolduc ribbon, news about my store, scarf inspiration, it’s all in my head, all I need to do is write it down. Sounds easy doesn’t it? 🙂

But I thought to share this quick news with you as we are heading towards the gift-giving-season at a seemingly more rapid rate than last year.

I just listed this lovely Hermes Guilloche Pince a Billets…

Hermes Silk Scarf Dieu Et Mon Droit The Queen’s Silver Jubilee 1977 Rare

This special Issue Hermes carre by Francoise de la Perriere was originally designed and issued in 1961 as Dieu Et Mon Droit (God and my right (hand)), which is the motto of the coat of arms of the English monarchy (not Scottish).  This motto in French goes back to King Henry V (1386–1422).  It is in French because at the time Norman French was the preferred language of the English court.

This medieval slogan reflects the belief that military victory was achieved as a direct manifestation of God’s favor rather than military savvy.

Today the Dieu et mon droit – God and my right motto is still part of the royal coat of arms.
