Update 07/08/20 with a beautiful reveal!

Before I begin, I just want to say that it is so hot here today that I have virtually collapsed onto my bed. So those lovely visitors hoping for a full range of modelling photos will have to wait until the weather cools down a bit!

Yes, after a few years of collecting silk scarves from the famous and iconic Hermès, I finally succumbed to this…

First of all, the smooth and beautifully designed shipping box (I keep these just in case):

The shipping box is open – everything is well protected:

The lovely orange box, with its Bolduc ribbon, larger than usual for me:

The box is open to reveal:

The beautiful shawl is lifted out and unfolded a little:

More views of Aline Honoré’s gorgeous Plumes en Fête, the 140 cashmere/silk version in Gris Chiné, Mauve, Rose, (code number H243433S 04):

I am planning to take some better detailed shots of the shawl and also modelling photos over the weekend. Also, I am aiming to either add all of the shawl information (including photos and a full description) to the Plumes en Fête Scarf of the Moment post or write a separate one. What do readers think?

More information about this wonderful shawl will appear in Monday’s post, all being well.

Hoping that you have a wonderful weekend.

Love and best wishes,

    Beautiful, Anne! Really love your choice. So many great colors to work with in that scarf. You get great H boxes, my orange boxes just come in plain brown cardboard.
    Hope you’re able to at least wrap it around you while you read or watch TV.

      Wrapping it around myself whilst in bed or on the sofa is my definite intention! I have never owned anything so luxurious in my life and I am going to wear it to the max this winter. Best wishes, Anne x
