Hermes vintage silk scarf, hand-rolled, 28" x 28" (100% silk) Color : yellow

Jean-Louis Clerc met Robert Dumas in 1950, when the artist was in his forties, with a string of prestige collaborations to his name. Clerc went on to create a dozen carrés with the house of Hermès.
Bain de mer is based on an original drawing belonging to Jean-Louis Clerc’s family. The decade is the 1950s. On a deserted beach, a young woman in a broad-brimmed hat sits gazing at the sea. Her name is Minouche, and she is none other than the artist’s wife, captured with his characteristically lively, light touch, in just a few lines, evoking the graphic elegance of an era. Duplicated here, the drawing suggests a strip of vintage film, a sweet souvenir of summer, the kind we warm to on a cold winter night.
