I received an Hermes gift card from Carl for Christmas this year. This has been high on my bucket list since our first trip to Paris in 2006. I'll never forget the fabulous orange window display that nearly took my breath away. The selection of scarves was almost overwhelming in its beauty. I mentioned to Carl then and upon a couple of other occasions when passing a store, that someday I'd love to own an Hermes scarf.
And this year I had the opportunity to walk into the Beverly Hills store and select my own. It was so much fun. I began to realize that this experience was probably like Carl playing golf at Pebble Beach. I was in my happy place.
I thought it might be difficult to choose but I honed in on a couple almost immediately and then made my selection after trying them both on. The scarf I chose was designed by Filipe Jardim and is called "Modernisme Tropical." A riot of colors and patterns that made my heart sing. The beautiful box, ribbon and bag were the icing on the cake.
Here's a lovely little two minute video that shows how they're made. Such a fascinating process and done with so much precision and care.
