Chemins de Corail by Annie Faivre

I am very happy to share some pictures of my new Hermes scarf Chemins de Corail from the Fall/Winter 2016 collection.

The scarf was designed by Annie Faivre and translates from French as “Coral Paths”. The Chemins de Corail scarf is absolutely adorable in bright orange, emerald and golden yellow colors (Hermes reference number H002207S 15). Even though this scarf comes from the Fall/Winter collection, in my view it can be worn any season of the year.

According to www.hermes.com when working with this design Annie Faivre was inspired by her childhood memories from Africa, which is known for its beautiful, diverse coral reefs.

Corals are the oldest inhabitants of the sea and are often accumulated into enormous banks or reefs, sometimes extending to a length of several hundred miles. The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system composed of almost 3,000 individual reefs. It is also one of the seven wonders of the natural world.

Annie Faivre is a French artist, who has been cooperating with the House of Hermes since 1979. She has created a number of famous designs for the fashion house, such as Zenobie, Reine de Palmyre (click here to read one of my previous posts about this scarf), Promenade de Platon, Mythes et Metamorphoses, Cavaliers du Caucase just to name a few of them.

Annie Faivre is known for hiding a little monkey in her designs, which has become her trademark. In the Chemins de Corail design the cute monkey wears a diving suit.

  2. Dear Muriel, thank you for your lovely comment! I am always curious to hear your opinion.
    I definitely recommend you trying this design (maybe in green?) or Plumes 2 (in grey and orange?). I am sure you would love them.
    As for me, I am a great fan of Annie Faivre. I find her designs to be very feminine and pretty. However, I can admit that her designs can be considered by many as too “busy” ones. Have a lovely day and I would love to hear which designs you admire this season.
