In french, a silk scarf is called un carré—“a square”—so there’s a luscious visual pun at play in Hermès’s new line of six limited-edition scarves, each of which reproduces a work from abstract artist Josef Albers’s monumental series, Homage to the Square. Given his credo, “The aim of art is living creations,” the Bauhaus-trained Albers might well agree that draping one of the color-saturated silk squares artfully across your shoulder is the ultimate hommage au carré. (From $2,800; available at select Hermès boutiques.)
