HERMES 90CM SILK SCARF - LA LEGENDE DU CHEVAL A PLUMES by UGO GATTONI
Ugo Gattoni's designs are detailed, fantastical whimsies of architecture and storytelling. His hallmark is human horses (see also Horsawards, Hippopolis, Battery Park, Gran Prix du Faubourg).
From the Hermes website, The Story Behind:
Ugo Gattoni invites us into a fantastical city populated by small, strangely human horses. At the foot of an imaginary pyramid reminiscent of the Tower of Babel, a multitude of characters roam through a futuristic cityscape aboard hovering shuttles, flying boats and galloping aircrafts. Inspired by the Mexican folklore that is so dear to him, the artist punctuates this exuberant metropolis with a musician in a sombrero, a traditional dancer, and cacti.
I love this design and was delighted to find it in the boutique two years after its issue. Alas my delight with the discovery overshadowed the knowledge that golden yellow does not agree with me. I've worn this three times in an attempt to highlight the blues but the gold in it has brought it to the rehome pile portion of the Color Correction Program!
