Hermes Commemorates Canada’s 150th Anniversary
FN - The French marquee recently unveiled a scarf as an ode to the country’s diverse culture and heritage and to mark the fête of its long existence.
Christened as ‘Into the Canadian wild’, the stole features a rather decorative scene by artist Alice Shirley, who has been collaborating with the brand ever since 2012. Known for the exceptional abilities to capture nature in divine art creations, Shirley manages to do just that with the landscape-inspired scarf.
The exclusive piece showcases polar bears, Canadian geese, deer, beavers, bears and more and aptly represents the “natural richness and diversity, burgeoning with wildlife,” found within Canada’s vast scenery. The scarf further comes in a bold red frame that references the country’s vivid love for life and goodness.
While the production of the scarf will initially be limited to a few numbers, it will eventually form part of Hermès Autumn/Winter 2017 collection. Sales for the ‘Into the Canadian wild’ scarf will go to a charity called ‘Evergreen Canada’, that as the name suggests, works on restoring natural life in the country.
