Hermès’ Tokyo Sunset

Published June 21, 2012

Hermès continues to demonstrate its love of photography with a new collaboration with Tokyo-born, New York-based photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto. The French company will produce a limited edition of scarves inspired by Sugimoto’s long-exposure Polaroid series, Colors of Shadow, a 10-year study of the Tokyo horizon. The scarves are a part of the Hermès Editeur series, which also includes work by artists Josef Albers and Daniel Buren. 20 of Sugimoto’s photograph designs were jet printed onto the scarves, each one with two to four colors bleeding into each other—from sunset reds and oranges to cool blue-green horizons. Only seven of each design will be produced, retailing for just under $9,000—the ultimate in make-your-friends-jealous accessories. For more information on the collaboration, visit Hermès’ website.
