Hermès Reveals Polaroid-Inspired Scarves By Japanese Photographer
Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto has designed limited edition scarves for fashion house Hermès’ Hermès Editeur.
The ‘Couleurs de l’ombre’ limited-edition silk scarves are inspired by Polaroids of the artist’s ‘Color of Shadow’ collection.
In his ‘Color of Shadow’ artworks, Sugimoto used a Polaroid camera to take long-exposure shots of cinema screens, light passing through prism, and extreme close-ups of colors to create vibrant and colourful photos.
Hermès selected some of Sugimoto’s Polaroids and printed them on silk scarves using ink jet printing.
Each scarf, measuring 56-inches by 56-inches, will retail at about US$8,860 each.
