Back in early January, I featured a design, called "Hermès en voyage", inspired by artist Ding Yi's work. This fall/winter design "Rhythms of China" is a very close interpretation of the artist's creations (one in particular springs to mind, namely 2003's "Appearance of crosses - 12" for instance). On closer inspection, the individual "pixels" are in fact delicate snow flake-like stars, forming a tight web of equal harmony and vibrant energy. When knotted, the dynamism of the pattern becomes not only visible, but also much more impactful. A very contemporary scarf suited for young stylish and mature sophisticated ladies alike.
An interesting detail about this scarf: it was launched in China by the Maison several years ago, and featured in an exhibit organized in September 2007 in Shanghai at the Shanghai Art Museum to mark 70 years from the launch of the first scarf, and 10 years of the Maison catering to the Chinese clientèle through local boutiques.
Regardless of when this design was released, this scarf is thoroughly impressive !
