"Della Cavalleria is one of the most extraordinary treatises in the history of riding. Written by Georg Engelhard
von Löhneysen, it was published in Bavaria at the very beginning of the 17th century, and now a part of the
Émile Hermès collection. Illustrated with baroque engravings, it presents some German sleighs drawn by fabulous creatures and richly adorned horses. Playing with these, the designer pushes extravagance even further by
assembling horses' bodies and chimerical monsters. Keeping in the theme of games, she humorously gives one
a racket, a yoyo or a diabolo to another, creating strange visual associations worthy of an exquisite corpse." Hermes
THE HERMES SCARF:
The Hermes scarf, also called “le carre” (the square), debuted in 1937 exactly 100 years after the company was founded by Thierry Hermès. Since then each scarf has told a story in elaborate intricate designs from the whimsical to the harmonious. Hermes scarves evoke emotions from the equestrian to the universe and has been loved through the decades by a myriad of women throughout the world and are coveted and collected.
In 1987, with the creation of L'Annee du Feu D'Artifice, Hermes began to create a theme each year. Over 2000 designs have been created and takes two years to make from inception. Each scarf has about 30 colours and has to be individually screened.
Along with limited editions and reprints of older designs in new colours, two collections of silk scarves and two collections of cashmere/silk blend scarves consisting of nine prints each are released every year.
Since Hermes scarves are so beautifully designed, often times they are framed and used as coveted artwork on walls.
