Additional information


"Tropiques" is a fabulous Hermès carre̒ by the famous artist Laurence Bourthomieux. It is a stunning scarf, the fabulous central panel illustrating birds of paradise and tropical plants, all of which are surrounded by zebras and giraffes grazing on the African plains. This design was first issued in 1987, and reissued in 1990/1991 and in 2013 in the 70cm size. The attached fabric/care label and the black colorway dates this vintage carre̒ as part of the Hermès fall/winter issue of 1990/1991.

The black colorway features an exotic array of hues: fuchsia, grey, teal, pinks, corals, sages, light yellow, ivory, camel and brown.

This carre̒ is 8 vintage and in very good condition (see grade and condition scale below) . The silk is crisp and drapes well. There are no stains, spots or discolorations. The hems are intact, tight and reasonably round for a vintage scarf. The scarf has two minor imperfections to declare: (1) two indistinct single thread pulls (see photo 6) and two mostly closed pin holes (see photo 7) caused by a dry cleaing ID tag sometime prior to our possession. These discreet issues are located in the lower right corner, are nearly invisible and should never be noticed when the scarf is worn or shown. The scarf measures 35.5" x 34.75" (90cm x 88.3cm).

This Hermès carre̒ is a perfect for the lover of animals and high fashion. This scarf is gorgeous when tied and worn. Comes without box
