While we loved Hermès’ teaming up with Rei Kawakubo and giving its iconic scarf, the much-needed spin in 2012 with not one but two limited edition collections, the French fashion house has gone a step further this season. Say hello to the new Hermès bandana square. And also to the Far West!
Hermès’ latest collection of bandana scarves boasts four models adorned with original Far West prints, among others equally Western equestrian. Think galloping horses, lassos, spurs and stars on silk twill in 23 different colors. Our picks? The French-American hybrids, “peuple du vent” (people of the wind) by Christine Henry and “les canyons étoiles” (the starry canyons) by Pierre Marie.
The collection also includes Hermès Ranch, an equestrian influenced pattern by the illustrator Philippe Dumas and Hugo Grygkar’s Ex-Libris. Up for sale now in stores and on the brand’s official website, the hand-rolled 70×70 cm bandanas are priced at $195, with the larger 140×140 cm at $850 each.
