Hermès, WONDERFUL LANTERNS
Superb square Hermes titled "Wonderful Lanterns" Created by Pierre-Marie en 2017. 100% silk. During one of his visits to the Émile Hermès collection, Pierre Marie falls off in front of a barouche lantern just restored. He appreciates the refinement of his decor. He discovers forty-four others, all different, that inspire him this dynamic square all diagonally. The desire then takes him to accentuate their singularity, to add a personal detail. Each lamp becomes the scene of an equestrian scene. Horses, Seahorses and chimeras dance around the light. Some form a carousel, others pose in majesty, still others make a couple with a rider. Hymn to the decorative arts, this square bears witness to the creativity of the craftsmen of the era of horse-drawn cars.
