Due to the stunning powers of this scarf and the clever, beautiful women that have bought and wear them I thought it deserved its own ode.

Everyone post your odes, info and/or pics scarves or GMs in this thread :biggrin:

And thanks for posting that very interesting Wikipedia article!:ty:

Loved seeing the scarf with the bangle! I don't have photos, but I have the silk twill in the black/white and in fuchsia and the cashmere/silk GM in fuchsia. Love them all - looking forward to more photos...

La Femme is my first Hermes shawl GM, and I am twins with Lanit (noisete, noir, absynthe). I would love to get the carre in the neutrals colorway.
This design is so beautiful and complex, and I love the back story of the French woman who traveled to distant lands by the slowest means available. Her story resonates with me, as a woman who loves to travel and who has visited all 7 continents (in relative comfort, here in the 20th and 21st centuries). As with many of the Hermes scarves, one may love it for the sheer beauty, or on other levels.
 
I read "Voyage d'une parisienne à Lhassa" a while back and was deeply impressed by A D-N. I'm new to Hermès scarves but when I realised there was a scarf made after her story, I knew I just had to have it. I wanted the black cw and of course it was sold out everywhere... I thought I 'd have to resort to the Bay when I finally managed to track one down!!!! :yahoo: I love it! Not just because it's beautiful but because of the story behind it.
