Collection FW2005: Rives Fertiles

The kind of scarf that not only tells a story, but is worthy of a magnificent frame and a prominent display.

Continuing the stream within the Hermes collection, "Rives Fertiles" ("Fertile Rivers") follows the course of a water stream - or perhaps of several, revealing the impact water has on the people who have access to it.  It reminds me of the river Nile, and the history lessons I used to enjoy so much in high school, when we learnt about the two harvests triggered by the unusually fertile Egyptian land "bathed" by the river Nile. This particular colour combination is quite an accomplished and enchanting visual symphony, with an air of elegance and sophistication that few scarves manage to attain.


  1. Honestly I don't like it that much, at least in this picture... i believe Hermes has much more beautiful scarves than this one... but maybe it looks nice knotted or rolled

  2. It not only ties beautifully, but also exudes sophistication and elegance at every turn of the person wearing it. It is gorgeous !!!
