Collection FW2007: Bolduc au Carré

A model from the FW2007, "Bolduc au Carré" ("Ribbon Squared") is simply charming.  The scarf design pays tribute to one of the subtle yet iconic elements of the Maison, the thin ribbon used to wrap the gift boxes.

The design illustrates a pattern of different coloured-ribbons, harmoniously weaved into a "cloth".  It's an impactful design, perhaps a little mature in the colours that I featured, but definitely young in some more vibrant colours, as issued by the House since 2007, in both traditional silk scarves and cashmere/silk shawls.  A truly timeless design !
