Hot Idea: Hermes Scarf

I saw this in Domino magazine and as soon as someone on Canal Street has a decent knock-off of an Hermes scarf, I’ll be doing the same thing.

Just take an Hermes scarf (you probably have drawers full of them; if not, troll eBay for vintage scarves, especially by Vera) and frame it in a wood gallery frame. Makes a great graphic statement. But avoid equestrian or historical-themed scarves, which will make your living room look like a Talbot’s in Greenwich.

By the way, a friend informs me that the late Mrs. Oscar de la Renta did this, so I’ll feel no guilt by co-opting this look that was already co-opted by the kind and generous folks at Condé Nast.
