Hermès has unveiled a limited-edition version of the ‘Chevaux en liberté’ scarf, which is available exclusively at its Place Vendôme store in Doha, Qatar. What makes the silk twilly that much more special is that it represents the fashion house’s commitment to supporting children’s welfare. The Chevaux en liberté scarf will contribute to aiding the Education Above All Foundation (EAA), which marks its 10th anniversary this year and has supported over 12 million children and youth in more than 55 countries to date.

Designed by French artist Jean-Louis Sauvat in the colors of the Qatari flag, the twilly is emblazoned with horses. While the Chevaux en liberté is currently available in a range of hues, it’s the first time it has been rendered in striking maroon and white. The pattern also nods to Hermès’ deep-rooted ties to equestrianism, as it sees horses in momentum, “set out on an enthusiastic race,” and made to resemble a praxinoscope with every sequence of gallop broken down meticulously. At the end of the twilly, a place where the Chevaux en liberté scarf is usually imprinted with ‘Hermès Paris’, reads ‘Hermès for Education Above All’.

The EAA’s educational programs help children grow up to be global leaders and agents of positive, sustainable change, and also fall in line with Hermès’s values. Over the years, the French maison has been actively engaged either directly or through its foundation in initiatives linked to schools and higher education establishments and local projects around the world that help provide children access to education.
