Hermès has recently collaborated with Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto, who designed a capsule collection of the legendary silk scarves. Sugimoto, who is a master of light, was discovered by Hermes’ artistic director Pierre-Alexis Dumas, during a studio visit in Tokyo.
Finally twenty photos have been selected to be printed on blank silk scarves, and published in seven limited copies. Baptized Colors of Shadow, these pieces will be available from 11 June 2012 on the website, for the project Hermes Editeur.
At the same time, the works will be exhibited at the Museum of World Cultures in Basel, from 12 to 21 June 2012. After collaborating with artists like Joseph Albers, Daniel Buren, Hermès confirms his promiscuity with the world of art.
