Vintage Hermès "Brides de Gala" 1990's jersey scarf, in excellent pre-loved condition. This is one of the most iconic Hermès designs. In 1957, Robert Dumas worked with Hugo Grygkar, laying two magnificent bridles on the floor, one opposite the other. It was an obvious choice: the composition was perfect, unparalleled in its simplicity. He had his scarf. Next came the talent of the type of “hand” Hermès is so fond of, precise and subtle. This scarf honors Hermès’ roots as a saddle and harness maker, our love for functional and long-lasting fine wares, and the importance of a short, snappy sounding name that brings to mind, in the words of Jean-Louis Dumas, “dazzling ceremonial dress”. It is extremely rare to find it in the vintage market, having in mind that the majority of Hermès scarfs were designed in silk.
