Hermès’ scarf inspires the 2013 Valentine’s Day stamp by the French postal service

If you are an avid stamp collector, then you can look forward to adding a luxury stamp to your collection soon. And if you don’t collect stamps, you can get some to match with your favorite scarves anyway. Luxury brand Hermès will soon bring out stamps based on its iconic scarf designs, all for the French postal service La Poste’s annual Valentine’s Day “Heart” collection. Having collaborated before with brands including Yves Saint Laurent, Christian Lacroix, Chanel, Givenchy, and Lanvin since the year 2000, the 2013 edition will be created around Hermès’ “De tout Coeur” scarf that Zoé Pauwels has designed. In a first of sorts, the edition will be issued on a sheet of five stamps, all sporting different designs, including swans, hearts, shooting stars, and a lyre, instrument of the messenger god Hermès.

The stamps will go on sale exclusively on Jan. 25 and 26 at the postal service’s “Le Carre d’Encre” store in Paris, with other post offices selling it from Jan. 28.
