Hermès Reveals Polaroid-Inspired Scarves By Japanese Photographer
By Anthea Quay, 21 Jun 2012
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.
