There are so many great artist designing for Hermes, that it is really hard to know why one becomes more sought after than another. Here are a few to look out for:


 Kermit Oliver. A postman from Texas, Oliver is considered one of the greatest living American Painters and is the only American  ever to design for Hermes.  His first scarf was in 1984  and ha sdesigned 18 to date.  


 Ugo Gattoni.  Gattoni is a Persian born artist  and has been with Hermes since 2015 and has designed  5 scarves to date ....his  most  sought after is  The Battery of New York.

Cathy Latham is another artist who is responsible for some of the most popular designs over the years.

Zoe Pauwels, a modern artist who has produced 25  iconic scarves.

Xavier de Poret  a very sought after artist  is responsible for 2 of Hermes most rarest design "Les Levriers and Greyhunds"..He has  19 designed scarves  ...all to do with his art of drawing animals.

Hugo Grygkar, the" Father of Hermes designs" who has designed for Hermes  since 1944. (born 1907- died 1959) and designed over !60 scarves ..all amazingly beautiful classic designs. His early designs that have not been reissued are now considered  to be "Grails"
