Hermès Collaborates With Kongo For Graffiti Inspired Scarves | Fashion
In addition to their iconic Berkin, Hermès are popular for their Carré scarves which I dedicated a post to when I first started this blog.
For its Fall/Winter 2011-2012 Collection, Hermès collaborated with French graffiti artist Kongo. The artist used his signature style while designing the scarves. Available at Hermès boutiques around the globe now, part of the proceeds will be donated to Kongo’s graffiti collective kosmopolis, which supports young artists.
I don’t really feel this is actually the spirit of Hermès in terms of design though I am for the cause. It makes you wonder whether brand names take such causes lightly.
