      The story behind       

      Two designs, Étriers from 1964 and Della Cavalleria from 2014, are mixed, mingled and reinvented in this thoroughly modern scarf. Their shared inspiration comes from the collection of Emile Hermès, an infinitely rich array of books and objects, in which the horse takes pride of place. Stirrups – including superb examples of 18th- and 19th-century metalwork – are made by artisans the world over, from South America to the Middle East, via France and Spain. Entwined with serpents and chimerae, the harness-pieces seen here are inspired by prints dating from the early 17th century.
