“Rei Kawakubo has stamped her vision on the Hermés scarf. With rigour, precision, energy, and salience”, remarks Bali Barret who is the artistic director in charge of the Hermés women’s universe. Kawakubo’s specially injected her personal vision to the luxurious Hermés scarf. This exclusive collaboration consisted of two collections in limited edition, which is ‘Black & White’ and ‘Colour’.

For this collaboration, the work of art that Rei Kawakubo presenting for Hermés is a reflection between a creation and an existing objects. The designer is highlighting the relationship between these two aspects and comes up with unique and contemporary objects.  Here, Kawakubo who always respect the Hermés tradition and beautiful craftsmanship add on some abstract design to its scarf in order to create a new look of Hermés. 

“Black & White” collection consists of five scarves printed only in black and white, which emphasizing the abstract pattern. Whereas, “Colour” collection made up of six creations that has its own character that surprisingly associates with the narrative of this traditional scarf.
