Hermes has completely departed from it's classic style in an unusual collaboration: The Hermes-Kongo scarf. This collaboration of the major high-fashion company and one of many talented and rebellious street-artists creates a product that can appeal to traditional fans of both brands.

The Hermes-Kongo scarf collaboration features all-over tags in explosively colorful designs reminiscent of Kongo’s well-known and respected signature style. His graffiti can be seen in cities across the world, from walls in Paris, to New York City, to Hong Kong, all bearing the same distinct lively style.

This collection is anything but boring, purely because it is so unexpected of Hermes to collaborate with someone with such little experience in fashion! Part of the proceeds gained from the scarves will be going towards the graffiti collection Kosmopolis, an organisation who support young budding artists, just as Kongo began.
