For a school project, I took inspiration from Hermès iconic scarf designs. By appropriating a classic equestrian pattern but hiding a subversive message inside it, I wanted to experiment with typography in pattern making. The first versions were printed on a chiffon fabric and exhibited at Konstfack in September 2020. The french quotes are from a speech attributed to Rousseau in 1793.
