Rare Hermes carre model 'Rocaille' offered here in a limited edition 'Saint - Barthelemy', designed by Valerie Dawlat-Dumoulin in 2006
The style known as "rocaille," under the Regency and also Louis XV, refers
to the decorative fashion of reproducing the whorls of certain sea-shells,
going so far as to plaster these same shells promiscuously over walls
and ceilings. Now, does this process betray signs of a stay-at-home
inspiration which glorifies the stability of the mussel-shell, clinging to its rock? Or, on the contrary, does it reveal the assumptions of a virile imagination thirsty for the murmur of the oceans? To each his yearning.
Rare, you will not find this specific issue anymore and it comes unworn in a fairy luminous palette! Don't miss it!
