PSN GROUP TO SPONSOR THE SILK LABYRINTH EXHIBITION FEATURING 80 YEARS OF LIMITED-EDITION HERMÈS SCARVES

27/02/2017

The Silk Labyrinth exhibition is scheduled to open on March 7 in the White Hall of the All-Russia Museum of Decorative, Applied and Folk Arts, timed to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the House of Hermès. Part of the expo will be available in the sales offices of the two elite projects by PSN Group — Polyanka/44 elite villas and the I'M elite residential quarter

To celebrate the 80th anniversary of the House of Hermès, collectors Alexander Tsybin and Ekaterina Tsybina decided to exhibit their private collection, Maison Carré Foundation, which ranks among the three largest collections of the world. The Silk Labyrinth exhibition will feature 115 of the rarest Hermès scarves that remain an eternal source of inspiration for countless celebrities. The exhibition will display a rare collection of Hermès silk scarves and showcase the earliest exclusive masterpieces created by the House of Fashion. The treasure trove of the Tsybin family boasts over 700 exclusive silk scarves.

The exhibition will consist of three mini expos. The first one will feature the oldest Hermès scarves crafted between 1930 and 1960. This expo will showcase an extremely rare scarf called Jeu des Omnibus et Dames-Blanches — the first Hermès scarf released in 1937.

The second expo will feature scarves inspired by Russian culture and history. It will show not only scarves but also items that inspired the Hermès designers to create them: traditional Russian toys, a reconstruction of a winter scene with a horse-drawn sleigh, and military uniforms of the 19th century Russian guard troops. The third expo will display limited- and special-edition scarves devoted to celebrities or major historical events.

A separate expo will also present graphical artwork by Russian painter Alexandra Koltsova-Bychkova, who created designs of clothing and accessories for the House of Hermès as far back as 1929. Two unique chairs by the Italian painter Carla Tolomeo will be one of the most valuable aspects of the exhibition. The sculptured chairs standing over 2 m tall will be wrapped in velour and Hermès vintage scarves.
