Under the context of the 100th anniversary of this French theorist, Roland Barthes, fashion house Hermès has created a silk scarf in commemoration of this author. This garment was designed by taking account of his book: Fragments of a lovers speech, whose pages can be seen reproduced on a fabric mosaic.

In the words of Pierre-Alexis Dumas, Art Director of the Hermès house: “A scarf is something very intimate: it absorbs fragrance and your aroma; it expresses emotion and memory”.
