Hermès Homage

Krystal Sarna | May 21, 2018 | Feature Features

Hermès and The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum: Samurai Collection partner up once again.

A year after the launch of the original Hermès scarf inspired by the Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum in the Harwood District, home to The Samurai Collection, comes the second fashion accessory woven out of a partnership with the philanthropic Dallas family. The new 140-by-140 cm silk and cashmere Parures de Samouraïs shawl ($1,100) pays homage to samurai warrior adornments from the 14th to 18th centuries. A sartorial replica of a suit of armor in bronze, iron, gold, leather, silk and lacquer, lies at the center of the shawl. “Our family embraces the opportunity to partner with amazing artists of all kinds, whether it be architects, authors or fashion designers,” shares Niña Barbier-Mueller Tollett. The East-meets-West statement piece is available in eight gorgeous colorways exclusively at the Hermès Highland Park Village boutique.
