Details
  • "La Legende Du Poisson Corail" or "The Legend of the Coral Fish" designed by the iconic French graphic artist, Christine Henry. A free-lance designer for Hermès since 1995, she has related that her sources of inspiration for her designs are mainly tales and legends from around the world, mythology and the symbolism related to the representation of animals and plants by different civilizations, old or new. She said the inspiration for this design, however, was 'the current ecological danger the world's whole coral ecosystem is now facing and the diversity of fish that now live in this underwater environment." The title is a play on words, expressing her hope that pollution and climate change do not destroy the world's coral reefs, resulting in the loss of all the fish species that rely on the reefs' existence to survive, so that 'legend of the coral fish' does not become real one in that those fish only exist in stories. This design was first issued by Hermès as part its 2010 Spring/Summer "Year of Storytelling" themed collection. To date, it has not been reissued.

    The amazing colorway is comprised of an anise green border with design details rendered in greens, mauve, pink, yellow and gold.
