The story behind
Henri d’Origny’s design Mors à jouets is one of the house’s great equestrian classics. Placed in the horse’s mouth and connected to the reins, the bit allows the rider to steer his mount. They are called à jouets (“mouthing bits”) when they are dotted with small beads of metal that encourage salivation and help the animal to relax its mouth. A detail of this composition has been enlarged to become the subject of the scarf itself. Set against a background of fine stripes reminiscent of the cotton weaves used to make men’s shirts, it becomes the Mors à jouets chemise.
