Stunning vintage Hermès mousseline 140cm, model Fleurs de Lotus in Black/White/Blue designed by Christiane Vauzelles in 1976. I don't know the exact issue of this mousseline, sorry, rare model in this palette!!
The lotus is the foremost symbol of beauty, prosperity and fertility.
According to Hinduism, within each human inhabiting the earth is the spirit of the sacred lotus. It represents eternity, purity and divinity and is widely used as a symbol of life, fertility, ever-renewing youth and to describe feminine beauty, especially the eyes. One of the most common metaphysical analogies compares the perennial rise of the lotus to faultless beauty from a miry environment to the evolution of man's consciousness--from instinctive impulses to spiritual liberation. In the Bhagavad Gita, man is adjured to be like the lotus. He should work without attachment, dedicating his actions to God, untouched by sin like water on a lotus leaf and the beautiful flower standing high above the mud and water.
