A little Hermès goes a long way. this is a new way to wear a vintage Hermès scarf. Union Los Angeles has just released their first collection for the new brand Project H, designed by Nino Scalia. Project H turns vintage Hermès Scarves into t-shirts, shorts and tanks (who knew Hermès could be so casual). Scalia says he got the idea of using vintage Hermès scarves, from his grandmother who collected the scarves at a young age, and eventually passed them down to his mother who then gave them to him. With each shirt comes a story of where the scarf was bought and in which year. The shirts are all dye sublimated and made in Los Angeles. Check out more photos of Union's Project H below.

Vegans can go ahead and stop reading right now There are few fashion houses that have maintained their position as respected and coveted purveyors of fine goods for over 100 years. French fashion house Hermès has been producing quality goods since 1837. And ever since the 18th century, leather has been one of their most-used material. To pay homage, London's Royal Academy Galleries has a new exhibition called "Leather Forever." The exhibition takes up 12 rooms, displays the many types of leathers Hermès has used, explores the role of leather as a fine good, and shows the history of Hermès. Tracking Hermes' beginnings in modest 19th century saddle shops, the exhibit also focuses on classic Hermes items like the "Kelly" named after Grace Kelly, the "Birkin" named after Jane Birkin, and even includes a tribute to Great Britain with four handbags designed for each British nation. It seems that fashion as art has been a trend of late. The Design Museum of London has just put on a tremendous Christian Louboutin exhibit, The MET is showing "Impossible Conversations" an exhibition about Elsa Schiaparelli and Miuccia Prada. And last summer, The MET showed a breathtaking tribute to Alexander McQueen. Does fashion deserves a presence in a museum as much as a sculpture or a painting does? Hermès "Leather Forever" runs at the London Royal Academy Galleries until May 27.

Luxe fashion has been biting the heels of street culture since kids started breaking rules. But to see the most prestigious French label shout out graffiti tags? Hermès wait-listed Birkin bag is so expensive we won't bother listing prices and their silk scarves are almost as elite. Let’s just say the Queen E is sporting one on the 1956 British postage stamp. But do you think she’ll be ordering one of these Hermès x Kongo scarves? That might be kind of awesome. What do you think of the high end graffiti? See more of the Hermès x Kongo scarves below.
