In part I of this article, I explored the new and returning leather colors for Fall/Winter 2022. The next part is my favorite; putting together the silks and cashmeres of the season with the leather colors on offer!

Putting It Together

As the color family names seem to be more of an internal corporate matter at best – I am seeing family name letters on the scarf tags but no actual names anywhere, not even on the Hermès website – I have been attempting to group scarves together by the dominant color. This can be challenging, as there seems to be some overlap among color families, some color families seem to only have a few designs, and some scarves have a dominant color not seen among any color families beyond a minor accent. Therefore, I have just made my best guess with certain colorways.

That is to say, you can take my groupings with a grain of salt; although some color families are quite obvious, as with so much of Hermès, it’s not entirely consistent (which, to me, makes it more interesting, as I love the occasional surprise). Regardless, I took examples of what appear to be certain color families and am offering some ideas for how to match them with the Autumn-Winter 2022 leather colors. Enjoy!

1. Cream – Blue – Green

This colorway generally has a cream or vanilla background with accent colors including medium blue and/or navy, along with yellow and often a soft green. The background calls to mind Craie and/or Nata, and will work with darker blues like Deep Blue, Bleu Indigo, and Caban, while there is also a bold primary like Rouge Casaque or Bleu France also with a touch of pastel like Vert Criquet or Rose Sakura.

In this colorway Cassis is generally the overarching theme, and it’s a good way to bring various pinks and purples into the colder seasons, paired with pastel greens and various shades of blue. This colorway is very versatile, and the first scarf in this section, En Liberte! has already proven to be a favorite among PurseForum scarf lovers.

Gene Kelly 70cm. Color Concept via @The_Notorious_Pink.

A more typical autumn-winter colorway of yellow and orange with a blue-gray, accented by a range of neutrals including dark blue, gold, and cream. One has to get a bit creative with the orange-colorway scarves as there is not much being offered by the leather department in any orange shade.
