Authentic Vintage Hermes Silk Jacquard Scarf Napoleon Pink Early Issue RARE

Sold Out

The always amazing Napoleon was designed by Philippe Ledoux, first issued in 1963 and re-issued in 1985. This bee jacquard carre pays homage to Napoleon Bonaparte. Five vignettes depict the French emperor in great detail throughout his reign. Bee, the symbol of immortality and resurrection, as to link the new dynasty to the very origins of France, was chosen by Napoleon along with the eagle, to be emblems of the Empire.

Ledoux, the master of detail and story depiction, and perhaps the most beloved of all Hermes designers, has created an unforgettable scarf, a true timeless classic worthy of any great collection
