Hermès has come out with a witty tribute to its iconic scarf designs in the form of a chic origami set. The famed French fashion and luxury goods house's twist on the traditional Japanese folk art pastime features several sheets of origami paper in bright colors, adorned with scarf prints in various motifs on one side, and deep-hued Rothko-like color blocks on the other. Encased in a handstitched black saddle leather envelope and presented in a black lacquer box, the set is priced at about $750. The envelope itself is designed in the style of a piece of folded origami paper, and echoes that of leather clutches Hermès has offered in the past. Hermès made its first scarf in 1937, and the eye-catching accessories were an immediate hit, since sported by worn by style icons such as Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Catherine Deneuve, and Jackie Kennedy.
