The second scarf (out of three) I have chosen this season is the gorgeous Jaguar Quetzal by Alice Shirley. This wonderful creation in vibrant green/pink/camel colours, cw 01 without any doubt will be my ultimate accessory this summer.
When creating this design Alice Shirley was inspired by the “jaguar warriors” of the pre-Columbian Aztec civilisation. The big cat is wearing a headdress, which is loosely inspired by the famous Penacho conserved in the Museum of Ethnology in Vienna. Made of feathers and semi-precious stones, this enormous headdress owes its beauty to the brilliance of more than 400 quetzal feathers. The quetzal is a tropical bird that lives in Central and South America, whose Aztec name means “long green feathers”. The designer, who is passionate about the animal world, gives us a tender portrait: a sleeping jaguar “dreaming of freedom”, according to www.hermes.com.
I wish you all a very happy weekend!
