Hermes Parures De Samourais Fram Scarf
A Hermes Parures De Samourais Fram Scarf. Translating to mean Samurai Ornaments this scarf, designed by Aline Honoré, is rich in both colour and detail.The samurai warriors of medieval Japan had richly ornamented armour. Fourteen of these elements, from the 14th to the 18th century, can be found in this beautiful scarf by Hermes. In the centre is a suit of armour in bronze, iron, gold, leather, silk and lacquer, crafted by two armourers of the Myochin school. This adornment from the Edo period (1615-1868) is certain to have belonged to a daïmio – a rich landowner. The ornamental details feature floral motifs or clan coats of arms. The pieces that inspired this design are preserved at the Ann & Gabriel Barbier‑Mueller Museum in Dallas, United States. Original retail price $690 AUD.
