Since 1937, the silk scarves of French fashion house, Hermès, has become an iconic fashion accessory that is recognized all over the world. Hermès scarves and shawls have been collected and adorned by celebrities and royals throughout history, from Audrey Hepburn to Grace Kelly and even Queen Elizabeth II. Renowned artists are commissioned each year to create elaborate artworks with bright, vibrant color combinations. An individual scarf typically integrates 20 to 30 different hues, each printed from a unique silkscreen process that can take hundreds of hours to complete. Each one is painstakingly screen-printed, with each color allowed to dry before the next is applied. These art pieces have proved to be timeless collectable pieces of history.
Hermes Centered Rhyme de Elaine Lustig Cohen Scarf
Design History: Elaine Lustig Cohen (1927 - 2016) was an artist, graphic designer and founder of Ex Libris, a bookshop specializing in the 20th-century avant-garde. In 1955, she began her design career in New York by extending the idiom of European modernism into an American context for a diverse clientele of publishers, cultural institutions and architects. As a painter, Lustig Cohen developed a hard-edged style in the 1960s and 1970s that asserted the canvas’ flat surface. She continued to experiment with bold colors and abstract shapes in a variety of media including collage, portraits and three-dimensional objects. Philip Johnson – architect of the celebrated Glass House (1949) in New Canaan, Connecticut – became Lustig Cohen’s first client when he commissioned her to design the lettering and signage for the Seagram Building. The two forged an important bond that resulted in a variety of projects for the Glass House, Yale University and Lincoln Center, among others. Inspired by Lustig Cohen’s 2015 exhibition of painting and graphic design at the Glass House, Pierre-Alexis Dumas, artistic director of Hermès, met the artist and designed a scarf based on her original work Centered Rhyme (1967). This project was carried out in collaboration with The Glass House (and a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the scarf will go towards the preservation of this iconic modernist house, a National Trust for Historic Preservation site).
