Collection SS2011: Marcelina
Happy New Year !!!
What a joy to begin the new year with a brand new post, one that reveals a tremendous departure from what we came to expect from the Maison. A timeless saying teaches us that you cannot expect a new outcome simply by following the same steps in completing the tasks. In other words, to achieve different results we must attempt new approaches - and it is in this spirit that I will present the "Marcelina" design, a completely different pattern than any other I have seen in the long series of designs produced by Hermes since 1932 (the documented launched of the scarves, although the first scarves produced for the public were launched only in 1937).
This pattern looks much more appealing when the scarf is knotted, as it has a retro air to it yet the choice of colours gives it a very youthful flair.
May this be an encouragement for all of us to attempt a new approach to life's problems, an approach that may even prove more successful than before - and while the result is not guaranteed to succeed, if we don't take the risk, we surely know what to expect.
