which is the most universally appealing scarf/colorway do you think? i'm getting one to donate to dd's school auction and obviously want it to attract more than one bidder.

I think I would choose one that is quintessentially Hermès such as Brides de Gala. I think there is a scarf with a lot of squares with that design in mini versions in lots of colors. I'm not sure if it comes in 100% silk though.

The one of the rooftops of Paris would be nice. It's so cute and I think universally appealing.

How about De Passage a Paris in the red/white or blue/white colorway? Not quintessential Hermes but it's very French and blue or red looks good on everyone!

I agree with Kallie Girl. Its so traditional. Such a nice auction item. I just bid and won one on Thursday.

HH, IMHO, to appeal to a larger audience, unfortunately or fortunately, the motifs on the scarf needs to shout blatantly HERMES.

There is a new scarf design in the Spring/Summer collection that is exactly that! It shows a HUGE H in the middle. And it comes in 4 difference colours, of which one is reddish brown. Sorry, I do not know its name.

How about Bolduc? That is blatant Hermes. The orange/brown one may still be found lurking in some stores, but it's not a colorway that's suitable for everyone.

can you describe what this looks like?


to elaborate, the pattern must be available for the 100% silk scarves ($320) and available at an hermes boutique - to be bought new, with box, tissue, receipt, bag at the boutique.
i thought it was such a fun idea, but now i realize i know nothing about their scarves. lol

that's the ribbon one?
in my town, i think more people would value the quality/beauty and prefer subtlety (not a flashy bunch).

Yup, Bolduc is the ribbon one. It's really not that flashy, IMHO, but I like De Passage a Paris better. Depending on how you tie it, it's pretty subtle.

de passage is very pretty. it's a current design?


and then of course just depending on what i find in stock, what are the most neutral/appealing/flattering colors - regardless of design?
