DESIGN HISTORY

Della Cavalleria is one of the most extraordinary treatises in the history of riding. Written by Georg Engelhard von Löhneysen, it was published in Bavaria at the beginning of the seventeenth century. This work, preserved in the Émile Hermès collection, is illustrated by Baroque engravings that depict, among other things, German sleighs drawn by fabulous creatures and richly adorned horses. Playing with these parties, the designer pushes the extravagance even further, creating a collage of hybrid creatures with the bodies and heads of horses and mythical beasts. And because in 2018 Hermès celebrates the theme of games, Virginie Jamin has wittingly handed a racket to one, a yoyo to another and a diabolo to yet another – creating bizarre associations worthy of a game of “consequences”.
