A UNIFORM REPLETE WITH ITS BRANDEBOURGS!!!
From "The Lesser Bourgeoise" by Honore de Balzac,
the great French novelist:
"The frock coat, soaked by many a down-pour,
with its brandebourgs, the frogs of which were
indiscreet enough to show their skeletons,
testified by its cut to departed elegance."
The inspiration for this carré is an album of military uniforms, badges and accessories in the collection of Émile Hermès. This carré sumptuously describes a vest decorated with froggings - an ornamental and elaborate braid that transforms the simplest coat into a uniform. Design by Caty Latham
It will enjoy a collector of vintage scarves, superb!
