Six scarves, 200 prints each: This collaboration sounds like a collector's dream come true. Though the partnership was announced months ago, these six fresh prints are exactly what we expected, nay, dreamed of seeing. Quirky, irreverent patterns, graffiti over traditional Hermes prints, and unexpected shirt stripes turn up the volume on the usually muted silk Carré scarves.
The collaboration is set to exclusively hit Dover Street Market on February 6, and spans the very typical-Hermès price points of $493 to $2,076. Pairing up the forward-thinking, genre-blurring work of Rei Kawakubo with the tradition and heritage of Hermès is an inspired decision: The past and future can finally exist in harmony...around your neck.
