Collection FW2015: A la plume

"A simple design, fluttering like a bird at the window". A delightful simile for the scarf, hand-drawn by the one and only Florence Manlik (we got acquainted to her thanks to the beautiful Brides de Gala en Finesse).  This is the perfect evocation of an image as delicate and light as a feather. 

Like a collection of quills, the multicoloured plumes spell out ‘Herm├Ęs Paris’, the words poised to float away on the air.  Myriad fine lines compose this ethereal, colourful composition, seemingly wafted onto the soft silk square by the breath of creativity itself.  Inspiration a-plenty, infinite patience, intense concentration...  

A unique approach to the art of drawing, based on the extraordinary precision of a single gesture, repeated a thousand times over.
