There I was, visiting the Festival des Métiers in Vienna, through which Hermès gives some insight into the work of its artisans… and for once, I found chile peppers not making an appearance in pop culture, but appearing on a luxury brand’s silk scarf design.
Hermès, you see, had a design in fall 2014 which playfully celebrated, well, vegetables: Le Potager Extraordinaire.
Of course the one design that immediately caught my eye was that one, and the part where I looked at it was the one illustrating Capsicum annuum 😉
Good thing my collection of such finds is only photographic; that scarf would set me back a pretty penny… but it is cute.
