Les Bolides and Virages Hermes Scarves with ties to 2003 and 2004 Le Mans Car Races

We are pleased to have two HERMES carres, Les Bolides and Virages that were purchased in 2003 and 2004 during the 24 Hours of Le Mans car races in France which take place every June.

In unworn condition with original boxes and bolduc ribbons, both would make the perfect gift for the car enthusiast.

The Les Bolides Hermes scarf was designed by Rena Dumas, the mother of the current artistic director of the Fashion House, Pierre-Alexis Dumas. Madama Dumas was married to Jean-Luis Dumas, who was at the helm of Hermes from the late 1970s until 2006.

To my knowledge this is the only scarf that Madame Dumas, an accoplished artichect by trade, ever designed.

Hermes did issue a Special Edition Les Bolides, which sports the number “24” in each corner and also on the scarf box.

The Virages, with its twists and turns so representative of a race track,  was designed by Pierre Peron.  Signed by the artist, the issue date, however, has to my knowledge not been documented. An issue date of 1976 has been suggested.  Originally issued as a 70cm square, the 2004 edition is a full 90 cm modern carre.

Both scarves celebrate the art of car racing.

The 24 Hours of Le Mans.  This world-famous car race began as an endurance race for both man and machine in 1923 near the French town,  Le Mans, west of Paris. Also coined the Grand Prix of Endurance and Efficiency, it takes place over a 24 hour period in which teams compete not just for speed, but also efficiency and ultimately completion of the race without any glitches, mechanical or otherwise.

This race is one if not the most prestigious car race in the world and its format has inspired many other races, such as the Indy 500 and others worldwide.

I would like to point out that the American Corvette Racing has won their class at the 24 Hours of Le Mans eight times – CONGRATULATIONS!

Both scarves can be purchased through our store.  Please follow the links provided or by clicking on each photo.

HERMES Promenades de Paris Vintage Carre

Philippe Ledoux, a legend among the Hermes artists, has created some of the most beautiful and highly collected vintage Hermes carres; among them Promenades de Paris.

As an illustrator, he brought not only an impeccable attention to detail, but also an incredible gift to transform ordinary scenes and objects into something extraordinary.

His tribute to Paris and I might add, love for the City of Lights, is evident in his scarves such as the Le Pont Neuf à Paris Hermès carré, which I wrote about couple of weeks ago and Promenade de Longchamps to name but two.

In his Promenades de Paris, Ledoux takes us along on a stroll down four of the most famous promenades in Paris, the Tuileries, the Les Invalides, the Le Palais Royal and of course the Champs-Elysees.

Promenades de Paris Les Tuileries Detail (2)

Even today, Les Tuileries, is a favorite spot not just among tourists, but Parisians as well.

On my visits to Paris, I make sure I come here, whether it is to just relax and take in the beauty or to people watch, I know, I will not be disappointed.

On the other bank of the Seine, Ledoux takes us to the Les Invalides, a huge complex, originally built as a retirement home and hospital for veterans. Today it is made up of monuments and museums dedicated to France’s military history.  Part of the complex is a church, its copula seen in the background, the burial site of Napoleon Bonaparte.

The Palais Royal is right across the Louvre and opens with a grand entrance onto rue Saint-Honoré.  The Hermes flagship store on 24 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré is an easy fifteen minute walk away.Promenades de Paris Les Palais-Royal HERMES

After you have admired Leila Menchari’s famous windows and with both hands full of orange shopping bags, you stride down Rue Boissy d’Anglas until you run straight into Champs-Elysees, perhaps the most famous promenade of them all.

As always, merci Monsieur Ledoux for a fantastic stroll through your City, the City of Lights (and Hermes carres)
