What looks like denim scarves at first glance in fact aren’t; they are actually pieces in either silk twill and cashmere/silk given the ‘denim’ treatment, a union that came about with the know-how of the French house’s Lyon printers as well as the expertise of specialists in northern Bangladesh and southern India famed for their use of natural indigo dyes.
Collectively you’ll find 4 pieces in the Hermès Indigo Scarves collection (priced from SGD1200 and up each), each extremely limited edition and sold in only 9 H boutiques across the world, with Hermès Takashimaya Department Store being the only one in SEA.
Whether you are a fan of the classic ‘Brides de Gala’ print or ‘Brazil Bandhini’, which has 3000 precisely-positioned small knots on it that’s then plunged into a vat of indigo dye, they will make great gifts for the Hermès aficionado who already has everything else. And because they are unisex, they will make great gifts (Valentine’s or otherwise) for the boys too.
Now all we need is for Hermès to come out with an app to show how men can wear these huge squares and still look, erm, manly.
