Review: Hermès — Slim d’Hermès Perspective cavalière

Eye-snapping colours from the French maison's isometric motifs on its scarves to its dials.

Fancy a shot of art? Hermès gets busy with its take on ‘isometric perspective’, a 2-D design technique once used in the 16th century by military mapmakers.

The technique gets a flourish of eye-snapping colours, courtesy of the French maison adapting the colours and patterns of its scarves to the dials, rendered using champlevé enamel technique. Available in four colour combinations — teal and royal blue; mandarin orange, salmon and navy; orange and canary yellow; and white and royal blue — each option is limited to six pieces.
