Hermès is giving Canada the ultimate 150th anniversary gift
Your Canada Day party outfit just got even better. Hermès is releasing “Into the Canadian Wild,” a limited-edition version of its covetable silk scarves, in honour of Canada’s 150th birthday.
The vivid scarf, illustrated by artist Alice Shirley, blends together scenes from Canada’s seasons with portraits of our wildlife – including the blue jay, Canada goose, and polar bear.
“The design came quite naturally,” says London native Shirley, who has collaborated with the luxury French house on scarves, jewellery and other accessories since 2012. “It was interesting to dive into a design around just one country, but one with so much diversity in the species here. There are so many iconic, magnificent animals in Canada.”
All proceeds from the scarf benefit Evergreen Canada.
The 90 x 90 cm silk twill scarf retails for $485 and is available at Hermès stores across Canada and on hermes.com.
