The Carnival of Venice just started and I know, me too, I wish I could be there to celebrate with the chic Venetians, sipping Bellini in costume d’époque and with a beautiful hat at the bar of the Daniele hotel. One day maybe (hopefully next year..).
In the meaning, I discovered that Hermes created a gorgeous scarf for those of us who feel like adding a Carnival touch to their outfits this February. The scarf tones are all in the winter seasonal hues of brown, red and yellow and represent several scenes and objects from the Carnival: the masks, the mandolins, Piazza San Marco, etc.
It is also what Hermes called a “soie faconnee“: some motives (two mandolins) are embodied on the silk itself. Can you spot them..?
Tutorial on how to tie it this way next time.. stay tune!
