Chloé was inspired by my last visit to Paris and my large collection of Hermes silk scarves. I wanted to explore my favorite geometries, namely octagons, ovals and circles as well as capture the essence of equestrian chic in bold colors that can animate a room. I shared the prototype with a current client and they loved the design for their luxury suites.
