Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto, is celebrating Le Meurice hotel’s 180 years in business, creating a special bespoke scarf design for the iconic Parisien landmark.
This limited-edition headscarves is inspired by all of the Le Meurice design codes. Its signature colours, the hand-painted canvas by Ara Starck, stretched high above the Le Dali restaurant, and the Parisian palace’s other symbols.
In his design, drawn on a Japanese silk stole, Yohji Yamamoto has blended the Le Meurice signature green colour with warmer hues, inspired by the canvas that decorates the Le Dali restaurant. Another source of inspiration, and not an inconsiderable one, was Salvador Dali himself, an iconic regular client at Le Meurice. The Japanese stylist has thus let himself be influenced by the renowned Spanish painter’s realm.
A last detail to be appreciated in the design: the greyhound, a symbol of Le Meurice, is subtly represented through the scarf’s ‘thin, flowing lines”.
This anniversary item is offered in a 30-pieces limited edition, available exclusively at Le Meurice. The celebratory silk carré scarf is priced at 450 euros and is available exclusively at Le Meurice and in Yohji Yamamoto’s flagship on Rue Cambon.
