Hermes’ Carré is an icon fashion product. One day I hope to own one of these silk squares. I have images of myself wrapping upon around my head like a 50s Hollywood film siren or tying it nonchalantly around the handles of my handbag as a ribbon of colour. Perhaps I will pass it on to a beloved family member as a token of affection. In the meantime, I am relishing in some intriguing facts about this smooth treasure.
