Hermès Paris LUNA PARK Silk Carré Carousel Horse Scarf
One of the most beloved and sought after designs by Hermès is the playful and colourful Luna Park, from 1992. This design was only made for one year and has not been re-released in all that time. The LUNA PARK design was created as a tribute to a former landmark amusement park's carousel on Coney Island, New York. The silk itself is in a firework patterned jacquard, with carousel motifs in jewel tones and a border of dark, rich blue. Joachim Metz was the head designer on this release and the scarf is marked J. Metz in the design. It takes a studio of 20 freelance designers approximately 9-10 months for a final pattern to be created and approved, and then colour testing requires another 3 months. All Hermès scarves are hand-printed using multiple silk screens. The entire process from design to concept, engraving and printing, to the hand-finishing process takes approximately two years. The final steps are that the edges of the silk are hand rolled and hand stitched, and then the label is added. It is a very lengthy and labour intensive process, so one can understand why these scarves are of such high quality and so treasured by their owners. For example, Queen Elizabeth II of England wears only Hermès scarves.
An Hermès scarf contains a minimum of 63 grams of silk (2.2 ounces) from 250 mulberry cocoons.
This scarf was purchased at the renowned Bergdorf Goodman store in Manhattan. It has been stored in a satin case in my dresser for lo these many years, and rather than have it languish there unseen, it needs to find a new owner who will take it out and show it off.
The silk square is 36" x 36", but measures 35½" x 35½ " after the edges have been rolled and stitched. It will come to you packaged in a gold gift box and wrapped in my signature bleu celeste tissue paper.
