It is becoming a tradition for Hermès to launch a tie and neckwear catalogue during S/S10 to highlight their exquisite offerings. Besides the ties which are in abundance in this season’s catalogue, a few more unusual pieces caught my eye. For example a Carré 70 in ‘vintage’ silk (SGD490), loosely rolled and tied around the neck matched with a black tee and loads of attitude.
A long-time favourite of mine, a large knitted cotton losange that should retail for around SGD1000 a pop. I could be wrong about the price, but I remembered how sensuous it felt on my skin till I saw the price tag and backed off. It’s definitely not going to be a never; instead I’ve decided to wait and turn it into a special treat for myself when the appropriate time arrives.
And more unusual are these scarf-ties in ‘vintage’ silk (SGD370) which I’ve never seen before. Are they scarves, or are they ties? Are they some new-fangled hybrids that I missed along the way? Personally I think they are lovely but I would really like to know how they’re worn.
Will someone out there kindly enlighten me?
