Story_CHEMISE CLASSIQUE ASTROLOGIE 90 SUR TWILL | Hermès

The story behind

A shirt with a neoclassic cut and a seasonal print, exclusive to Hermès. The beauty of the piece lies in the placement of the design. Here, the astrological table from the Astrologie scarf is presented symmetrically on the front.

The story: this design is inspired by an astrological table from the Renaissance, composed of three discs that turned to reveal the movements of the moon and the sun throughout the year. The interior featured occult symbols drawn from black magic, a very fashionable topic at the time. The signs of the zodiac and the central sun have been added, and the four corners feature the four constellations of Delphinus, Pegasus, Monoceros and Apus.
