An Hermès "Sequences" silk scarf designed by Caty Latham in 1984 as a tribute to Eadweard Muybridge's "The Horse in Motion," an early example of chronophotography.
The scarf features a navy blue border and horizontal stripes at the center in shades of light blue, purple, and red. Several rows of golden horses depict various equine activities including jumping, cart pulling, racing with a jockey, and trotting. At each corner there are stylized 'camera shutter' medallions in navy, purple, and red. "Hermes Paris" logo in lower right corner; artist signature at lower left corner.
Hermès first began producing silk scarves in 1937 and became famous for their elaborate silk screening process, which applies each color present in the scarf one at a time on to the silk. The hallmark of luxury, Hermès has established itself as a timeless brand that will never go out of style!
