Inside the Chic Universe of Hermès Scarves

By

An Hermès silk scarf is one of those wardrobe classics, worn by generations of women and yet still totally easy to style todayThis week, the brand launched La Maison des Carrés, an interactive menagerie that allows you to explore its vast array of silk scarves — 600, to be exact — in every color, fabric, and size. The website works like a fancy video game, with each room playing up the theme or mood of a new scarf.

As Bali Barret, artistic director of the women's division, put it, the site tells the story of Hermès silk in an entertaining and unconventional way.” But — especially with a dizzyingly detailed scarf app — we think it's the perfect way to spend a lunch hour. Click through the slideshow to see our favorites, and check it out at lamaisondescarrés.com
