Hermès teams again with Texas artist Kermit Oliver to decadently execute Southwestern themes. This time, the focus is on the Texas flora and fauna preserved by the Caesar Kleberg Foundation for Wildlife Conservation. Oliver created an exquisite prairie scene for the 90-centimeter scarf, which is available in four colorways (red, pink, blue and black) and rendered in Hermès’ storied silk twill. Houston and Dallas boutiques stock the scarf exclusively for six months, with a February 12 launch at Hermès in Houston, featuring a PA by Oliver himself. Ten percent of scarf sales benefit the Caesar Kleberg Foundation for Wildlife Conservation — its namesake preservationist, a member of the King Ranch dynasty. $410, at the Hermès boutique.
