HERMES 90CM SILK SCARF - LA VIE AU SAUVAGE BY KERMIT OLIVER
Kermit Oliver was thought to have retired from designing scarves for Hermes, so the collecting world emitted a squeal of delight in 2014 when a new design came out. Known as the Caesar Kleberg scarf, a limited run of 2,000 was produced to benefit the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute's Waterfowl and Wetlands Birds Department (twice the volume of most scarf productions). It was sold only in the Dallas and Houston boutiques before being produced in 2015 as a regular issue of bearing its 'Vie Sauvage' title. Is it a play on words (wildlife vs wild life)? Only Mr. Oliver knows. Again we see in intricate detail 122 species of plants and animals native to Texas.
