The Story Behind
The house’s iconic scarf, Brides de Gala, has been reinterpreted many times over the years. Endlessly revisited, but always instantly recognizable, the striking composition is the work of talented draughtsman Hugo Grygkar, who was himself inspired by the beauty of the original bridles depicted. One, belonging to the Mexican emperor Maximilian I, features figures of mermaids emerging from Horns of Plenty. The other is decorated with the elaborate arms of the Comtes de Ferronays. Today, the design is reworked as a bandana through a simple, graphic technique.Hermes
