Today wearing mint stripes

One of the wonderful side effects of having a collection of Hermès scarves is definitely that you always find a scarf with the Must Have colors of the season, even if the chosen piece is much older than a few months.

For example: Faubourg Express by Dimitri Rybaltchenko from Spring 2009 with the mint and blue shaded stripes on grey background.

Such as a picture cut out from the landscape, framed by the window of a passing train, the FAUBOURG EXPRESS scarf wavers between reality and abstraction.  The image is streaked with thin lines, giving the immediate impression of speed.  Reality is transformed waiting to be reconstituted, imagination set free.  This blurred image provides a moment of escape to the onlooker. Carried away by a high-speed train that erases the landscape and makes it fray, rocked by the regular rhythm of the engines, the traveller plunges into an almost hypnotic dream.

Even if I had chosen another color way of the design like Costinianus shows a much more colorful version on white background in his blog, it would be perfect for wearing it this season. And so it comes to no surprise that Faubourg Express will get some air this summer and won’t have any reason to be sad in the closed orange box.
