Scarves: Sale of fall/winter Hermès

Last spring's sale of 35-inch (90cm) Hermès silk twill carrés from my overfull collection was so welcome that I decided to offer one last sale, this time of fall  colours. Each is authentic, in excellent used condition (really, virtually unworn), with no snags, stains, odors or sale stamps. Hems are plump, colours vibrant.

Please e-mail me if interested (addy is in right sidebar); the spring flight sold out in hours. The price is about half retail; "Neiges d'Antan, Détail" is a bit more because the jacquards are more expensive. Payment by PayPal. Shipping via Canada Post insured ($25 to most North American locations) in padded mailer or, if you wish, via UPS. There are several countries outside North America to which I regret that I cannot ship, and sales are final. 

Neiges d'Antan (Détail) by Caty Latham: One of the much-loved holiday scarves; sprigs of holly and mistletoe, with a jacquard of holly leaves. Colourway is soft orange, leaf green, gold-green, a splash of deep cranberry, the Hermès ribbon in light brown, and signature orange border. Beats the hell out of a Christmas sweater!


Sold to J.!

Closeup of the jacquard:



L'arbre de soie by Antoine de Jacquelot: Golden mulberry leaves and berries scattered on a rich brown background, with small grey silkworms: the spinning of silk, printed on silk, an assured and sophisticated botanical. Elegant with camel, ecru, or grey.

Sold to P.!

Detail showing silkworm, berries and leaf:



Qu'importe le flacon by Catherine Baschet: A feminine array of finely-detailed antique perfume bottles in hues of blue, emerald green, gorgeous pinks, with a Prussian blue border; because of the yellow and green notes, this is a truly a cross-seasonal scarf.

Sold to E.!

Closeup of the intricate bottles:



Carpe Diem by Joachim Metz (also known as Gloria Soli): One of the best-known scarves, a burst of sunshine in a vibrant green, orange and blue colourway. Mint condition; care tag is still on!

Sold to L.!

The corners and border are especially stunning:



Several buyers sent photos in their new scarves, which I enjoyed tremendously. Today is someone else's turn!

Just beautiful, though not my colors, alas. Very impressed that you can let go of such treasures.

Glorious colours and patterns...and I see that they are selling fast!

I hope to buy my next Hermes scarf in Paris at their flagship store. I just found out that I am going to be going on the Jamie Cat Callan Ooh La La Tour next May!

They are very beautiful scarves (my favourite is the silk tree) but I'm glad you are able to let them go, as we always accumulate "too much stuff". Even good stuff.

Neiges d'antan is as festive as I want to get this year. It's lovely.
