French Fashion House Hermès has collaborated with Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto to create a new 20 piece limited edition collection of scarves. Better known for his photography work, Sugimoto based the collection on one of his projects called “Couleurs de l’Ombre”, a series of polaroids inspired by Isaac Newton’s theory of color.
“I believe that art can be wearable”, said the contemporary artist about this special collaboration that integrates art and fashion to perfection with captivating, colorful pieces. The precious scarves are 100% silk and sold in a cylindrical case with a certificate of authenticity and a book. They have a price tag of €7,000 euros and can only be purchased online at Hermès Editeur.
This partnership makes the third edition of Hermès Editeur project. The first two were with the late Josef Albers in 2008 and conceptual artist Daniel Burenin in 2010.
