One of the art world’s most coveted accessories this summer is a limited-edition Hermès scarf by Hiroshi Sugimoto. Fashionable art collectors of ArtKabinett social network will enjoy wearing this high-end accessory to their next vernissage.
“I believe that art can be wearable,” says the contemporary artist, who based his line on a long-running project of his called “Couleurs de l’Ombre,” or “Colors of Shadow,” that was inspired by Isaac Newton’s studies of color.
Mr. Sugimoto created 20 multicolored designs for Hermès, which offers seven of each.
Since mid-June, when the French luxury brand unveiled the 140-centimeter-square scarves at Art Basel, it has been selling them online for €7,000 (about $8,820). Two of the styles have already sold out.
