Hiroshi Sugimoto

French Fashion House Hermès
has collaborated with Japanese artist Hiroshi Sugimoto to create a new 20 piece
limited edition collection of scarves. Sugimoto is better known for his
photography work and his work is featured in the
Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York as well as at Tate Gallery in London.

The contemporary artist said about
the collaboration “I believe that art can be wearable”. He based the collection on one of his projects called “Couleurs de l’Ombre,” or
“Colors of Shadow,” that was inspired by Isaac Newton’s theory of color.

They have a price tag of €7,000 euros or about $8,500 dollars and can only be
