Carré Story – Beloved India

“Like an enormous illustration, the Carré Beloved India pays tribute to the artisans who paint the earthen walls of Indian homes. Giant cartoons, picture-book illustrations and childlike frescoes… This figurative, ornamental and very expressive painting style is characteristic of Indian folk art.”
When Beloved India was first issued in Fall 2008, it immediately caught my attention because of the gorgeous illustration draw by Philippe Dumas (Monsieur Dumas is the grandson of Emile Hermès and also an illustrator of children’s literature. Btw, Emile Hermès is the grandson of Thierry Hermès, the founder of the house). However, I didn’t buy any silk Carrés back then coz I couldn’t find a colorway that really sing to me. One season later, the same design has been reissued as cashmere and silk shawl. This time, there is ONE just made my heart beat faster: the absolutely stunning bleu dur/corail/bleu jean colorway.

I feel pleased every time when I wear this beauty, maybe because of the cheerful design, or maybe because it just makes my raining November days more cozy and enjoyable. I can’t really explain it, but all I want to say is: wear something that lights up your heart. Women are always the most glamorous when they are happy. Have a good week everyone! :-D

    多么cheerful滴设计哇。。尤其那个大象滴几个脚丫丫,又可爱又生动,似乎能听到大象悠哉悠哉滴走路时,脚脖子上戴滴一串串铃铛发出的叮呤呤滴声音呢,让人听了就happy!!丝巾滴橘红色边边也好喜欢,有点像挂毯上滴碎碎呢。喜欢这样富有童趣滴,随性滴illustration,赞一个!!

    It assures a woman that she might be a little girl, but with more appreciation of everything beautiful.

    I really like this shawl folded, was even considering getting one, but the unfolded design did not feel like me, so in the end I passed.
