The story behind

Based on the Fouets et Badines en Patch scarf design.
Virginie Jamin often draws inspiration from the collection of Émile Hermès. A master of layout and composition, on each visit she unearths inspirational objects as the motifs for her next scarf design. This time she set her heart on a 19th-century trade catalog of hunting and coachman’s whips, switches and other pieces from the collection. Her imagination completes the ensemble with braided leather straps and carvings in wood and ivory. The strict diagonal of whip-handles embellished with carefully aligned globes and dog or horse heads contrasts with the supple, sinewy network of forms in buckled and intertwined leather straps.
