The Hermes scarf is not simply a square of silk, it is a style icon worn, converted and collected by many which makes it more than just a fashion accessory. What began in 1937 has grown to a sumptuous selection of more than two thousand different designs with the Napoleon scarf becoming part of the history in 1963 designed by Philippe LeDoux. This scarf was purchased by its owner in 1971 and worn with love, it is a large detailed silk with a mix of print and stitched detail that is seen in the little bees. The colours in the scarf are yellows and burgundy red with grey pictorial vignettes of Napoleons great escapades through history as depicted in some of the 17-1800 painting masterpieces. This can be worn everyday or for special occasions and can be simply draped over the shoulders or wrapped at the neck.
