My first Hermès of several. So gloriously old-school nautical in design and sober blue color scheme. Needs a dry cleaning to remove a few spots, but it’s like having Mom in expensive silk form.

Really gorgeous autumn-colored piece with gaily underdressed young ladies frolicking around a pastoral lanscape. I have a feeling this is very rare.

Vintage Jean Patou in bronze, marigold, cream and lavender. Provenance: Ebay

adele

Gustav Kimt’s “Portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer” Provenance: Beautiful Treasures, Canberra Centre.

Once the world’s most expensive paintings at US$135 million, in considerably cheaper and more fashionable silk form,

columbus

Hermès “Christophe Colomb Decouvre l’Amerique” Provenance: Hermès boutique, Sydney.

Love the loud purple/gold/orange colourway, the detail on the ship, and the manifestly political incorrectness of its subject.

Frey Wille egyptian-motif long scarf. Provenance: Frey Wille boutique, Sydney

I don’t have many long scarves as opposed to square ones, But when I came upon the silk paradise that is Frey Wille in Westfield Sydney, I thought it a good time to try something different (and modestly priced). Pyramids swirled with gold and layered with color blocks. Perhaps some of my Masonic friends would care to interpret them for me?
