Hermes & Hiroshi Sugimonto

French fashion house Hermes has been working on their third edition project for Hermes Editeur. Where they invite artists to bring new ideas and creations to make a limited edition scarf line. For their third edition they invited Hiroshi Sugimoto, an important Japanese artist.

From 2009 to 2010 the artist worked on a artwork titled Colours of Shadows, which consisted on taking long exposure shots of cinema screens. The vibrant and colorful photos were achieved by letting light through a prism. He created a whole series of Polaroids with various color combinations and shadows, from which Hermes selected 20 of them to print them on silk scarves using a ink jet printer. Each scarf will retail for around $8,860.
