  4. Dear MaiTai, How wonderful, I love when you share your photos of FSH. sending many thanks! I see some nice neutrals, both in Mécanique du Temps and Camails that are tempting! I haven't seen either of those colorways prior, but will now be searching. Hope you had a fun stay in Paris!

    1. Many thanks! Re the neutrals, my thoughts exactly when spotting these (and the other beauties) in the display. When asking for them at the scarf counter, I was told they were only made for the display. The SA looked exasperated, telling me I wasn't the first one asking. He added that I won't be the last one either..

    2. Oh my, thanks so much for the details, and disappointing to hear. I can see how exasperating that would be for the sales associates, and for customers! I certainly wish they'd produce them, as they have a quiet, elegance.

  7. OOOH LA LA.....how beautiful! What a treasure it must be to see the FSH in person! I can only dream......

    Do you happen to know the names of the scarf in the 2nd row on the left...and the one in the 6th row photo? They are calling out to me :) Will these scarves be hitting the USA shores soon or are they already here? Love love love them! A million thanks :)

  8. I'm always amazed you you get such clear photos, it's always very busy when i've been.
    Hope you had a nice stay in Paris, i'm sure we are all wondering if you bought back a souvenir!
    I'm going in 3 weeks time, I will definitely make a stop at les trois marches you recommended.

    1. Have a most wonderful time in Paris, dear tara! Hope you'll find a treasure at the 3 marches... please say hello to CatherineB! Re the pics, I was lucky. Otherwise, in the beginning of the week and also during the lunch hour it tends to be less busy at FSH.

    1. Les 'Balcons' dans la vitrine étaient un rêve, je suis bien d'accord! Et la tunique était vraiment sublime.. J'ai pensé à vous, chère Myriam, quand on été à Paris, car notre quartier preferé et le même que le votre. Amitiés

  11. Terrific photography! I know the subject matter helps but you have a real skill.

    The muted greys with rust and touches of chartreuse are artistic mastery. Look at those outsize pencils! Loving the final vignettes of the pewter hues of the china, glass and jewellery; the spool of silver thread is a witty podium for these treasures.

    Looking forward to a reveal....?!

    1. Many thanks for the kind compliments, dear pussywillow. But as you've said, the subject matter certainly helps! ;-) The windows were particularely wonderful to look at, I have not seen such an abundance of beautiful neutrals in a long time.

  12. Thank you so much for posting these, dear MaiTai! They are magnificent - I will be in Paris in about a month and very much hope to still see these displays. The bicolor ghillies Kellys might cause me to faint on the sidewalk though...

    1. Wishing you a most wonderful time in Paris, dear SophieG, and crossing my fingers for the displays to be still in place!

  13. Thankyou for sharing these wonderful vignettes , all exudes quiet luxury and I can smell that certain H smell of leather mixed with some
    of their classic fragrance like Caleche.

    How bizarre that they make neutral scarves just for display, what attention to detail also...

    1. So glad to hear you enjoyed the post, dear Estrella! The same wonderful smell seems to be coming from my computer screen when looking at the pics... :-)

  14. Be Still My Heart. The Mecanique du Temp is to faint over! That cw is stunning beyond belief! But sadly, I read your comment to NikiNotes that it is for display only. This is the exact cw I had hoped for in MdT. Perhaps with enough inquiries, H will do a special issue?

    Such drool worthy photos, dear. Thank you for the lovely post.

    Orange hugs,
    CS

    1. How I wish for the MdT to come out like this! Will let you know should I ever spot one. In the meantime, I have enquired via my SA about it.. not giving up hope yet! xx

    2. Yes, please let me know if you find one! The colors are so perfect!

      Warm hugs,

  15. Such a wonderful treat dear MaiTai, for those of us on the other side of the world. I share the disappointment and question the rationale behind creating such beauties for display only. Ah well...we have your reveal to look forward to.

    Merci encore une fois,

    Maisie

  16. Beautiful, exquisite, quiet elegance, perfect for fall......I echo everyone else's thoughts! How wonderful of you, MT, to share the joy with us! Fingers crossed, Hermes hears our roar :)

    Happy weekend, MT and all

  17. Welcome back, dearest MaiTai! As dear Manuela said so superlatively, Hermès is Hermès and I too am absolutely speechless!! I'm totally transfixed - never seen such beautifully rich silver, luxuriously fun pencils, such intensely deep and creamy neutrals….and as usual, the bags and the scarves make me weak at the knees… I am also disappointed to know that we cannot look forward to trying these gorgeous neutral scarves, yet creating a colorway solely for the display is also what I love so much about Hermès! Thank you so much for these stunning pictures - what a most wonderful and special treat this week <3
    Wishing you a lovely weekend back home. Sending you much love and giant orange hugs xxx

    1. So very happy you enjoyed the pics, my dearest Scarf Enthusiast! I was week at the knees too...which made steadying the camera quite tricky! With so many beautiful neutrals in the window displays, I am beginning to get hopeful for the SS2013 scarf collection. Have a wonderful, golden autumn week xx

  18. What eye candy! I don't know how you contain yourself when you see the FSH windows. Aren't those pink/etoupe Kelly's adorable? As always looking forward to seeing your new addition. Axo

    1. I could hardly contain myself, my dear msT! Wish I could walk through glass ;-) The Ghillies Kellys are so sweet, and it was lovely to see the leather/colors reversed. Have a happy week! xo

    1. Je vous remercie pour vos mots chaleureuses, chère Marie-Claude. Je ne peut pas attendre de la sortie de GC non plus, et je vais vous tenir au courrant au niveau de col en noir. Une très bonne soirée à vous!

  20. Thanks for the super photos of the windows MT! I am in Paris next week so will check them out - what a pity the scarves on display are not actually in stock - nothing irritates me more than shops having an item on display that they don't actually have in stock - what is the point I ask myself?! I am hoping for a Galop Chromatique at some point though and was pleased to see it featured in the window displays to great effect. Thanks again for sharing, enjoy the weekend SAx
