Timeless Silks: The Hermès Carré

Timeless Silks: The Hermès Carré

Hermès in Rago's Winter 2018 Jewelry Auctions

27 November 2018

by Lauren Della-Croce; Specialist, Fine Jewelry

Woven from the mulberry silk of 250 cocoons and individually screen printed (a process requiring nearly 18 months of production), it is no wonder that the Hermès Carré is synonymous with luxury. Produced in an array of nearly 2,000 patterns, each a cascade of color, these silk squares of “wearable art” have become an enduring wardrobe staple for the fashion forward since their introduction in 1937.

Lot 2558 – “Colliers de Chiens”

From the heads of fashion icons such as Audrey Hepburn, to the necks of celebrities like Blake Lively, this versatile cut of silk has maintained its place as an international fashion staple, having survived eight decades of changing trends.

Lot 2589 – “Salt Marsh”

Though fashion continues to evolve, the exceptional quality of the Hermès scarf has remained the same. With nearly 100 lots of Hermès silk to be auctioned off at Rago Auction’s on Sunday, December 2, 2018, collectors have an opportunity to acquire desirable patterns such as Hommage a Central Park or Regina.

Lot 2599 – “Les Folies du Ciel”
