Hermes Cheval Surprise Remix by Dimitri Rybaltchenko

This season it took some time for me to decide which Hermes scarf to choose, since there were so many beautiful designs presented. Finally, I fell for Cheval Surprise Remix in blue, golden yellow and mauve designed by Dimitri Rybaltchenko. When I tried this scarf on, it made my face light up with delight. I simply loved how the blue and mauve shades of the scarf were in harmony with my hair and skin tone.

Dimitri Rybaltchenko is the son of Vladimir Rybaltchenko, and the great-grandnephew of Philippe Ledoux. All renowned Hermes artists. The grandfather of Dimitri was born in Kiev, but moved to France in early 1900s, a few years after the beginning of the revolution in Russia. As Dimitri tells in an interview to a Russian magazine, his grandfather was educated mechanical engineer and after emigration worked at Renault and Citroen factories. And he sang beautifully, what fascinated a young French aristocrat Alice Ledoux, the sister of Philippe Ledoux.

I own one more scarf designed by Dimitri Rybaltchenko, Photo Finish, which is also so special and absolutely beautiful. I always look forward to the new Hermes collections in order to see the new designs by the talented designer Dimitri R.

  1. Excellent choice!
    The blue sweater and the scarf together look spectacular.
    i am a big fan of Dimitri Rybaltchenko’s designs, too.

    “Cheval Fusion” and Electrique are so different but also both his designs.

    greetings from Vienna!

    PS: I can’t understand why no one else feels the need to comment on your lovely blog. Thank you for publishing the joy you have with your scarves.

      1. Hello Irina,
        I fear you have gained a lot of intel on rings and designs and I am eager to learn from you.
        I have 2 questions, if you have the time I would be grateful if you could answer them:
        – Is the Trio a ring you use on a regular basis or is its use rather limited, due to the design with the three rings?
        – I would love to know how large the Trio rings actually are. Trio seems to be large but honestly, I have no clue. If you have the Trio nearby anytime, I would be great if you could measure the diameter.

        Thank you!
        Paula

      2. Dear Paula, I use the Trio scarf ring quite often, but not as often as the Regate scarf ring. I would describe Trio as more casual and Regate as a more classic one. Trio is ver versatile as well. But I personally prefer the Regate. As for the sizing. Trio exists in two sizes: the large one for shawls and the smaller one for scarves. Since I only own the Trio scarf ring, I can tell you that it is 2,5 cm in diameter. It is perfect for 90 cm scarves, but can also be used with 70 cm scarves and maxi twillies. I hope I could help you to make your decision. Best, Irina

      3. Dear Irina, Thank you so much! I am glad I’ve asked. (I had no idea Trio comes in 2 sizes)
        best wishes, Paula
