Selles a Housse Hermès Silk Twill Scarf
I've been a fan of Hermès ever since I received my first hand-rolled silk twill scarf... Selles A Housse from my nanny-family in Connecticut. My employer and [still] great friend Vicky and her two fabulous children and I celebrated the end of our first summer together—and my departure for art school in London—at Le Chateux in South Salem | NY. During that delicious dinner in 1977, I was given my first handsome orange box, and that was the beginning of a long love affair. There was something so powerful about wearing [at the fair age of nineteen] that sophisticated equestrian-patterned scarf with my suede jacket and jeans. It made me feel European, lady-like and buttoned-up. Years and quite a few scarves later, I still admire the sophistication and artistic perfection of Hermès.

Balcons du Guadalquivir bracelet in enamel [from $445 - $640]
This season, the Balcons du Guadalquivir bangle captures my attention in Red. And, I just love the castanet-playing illustrations of the bracelet featured in travel the world of Hermès. [check out this fun, informative part of the Hermès website—it's one the most creative displays online.]
