Now you see me, now you don't

"Since I personified the savage on the stage, I tried to be as civilized as possible in my daily life."
Josephine Baker


With that quote in mind, Josephine Baker would surely have loved this Hermes silk scarf emblazoned with her image...after all, what's more civilized that a chic silk square?

Unfortunately, as usually happens with this type of scarf, there's an issue...it's beautiful when laid flat but the minute you attempt to actually wear it you'll lose the majority of the design that was the main reason for your purchase in the first place. Perhaps this explains the popularity of Alexander McQueen's skull scarves...you can actually see the print when you're wearing it...

    You are right about the tricky graphics of scarves, and usually I absolutely admire Hermès for keeping an excellent balance between big "subjects" and small details in their scarves. They are really works of art and I enjoy looking at what new they came up with. I agree with you on this one, although I kind of like the grainy picture print of the red version. It's still lively enough to have something interesting. Thanks for sharing the picture!
