Hermès's Promenade à Versailles scarf benefits the restoration of Versailles' chambers.

Every good traveler knows to pack a scarf—they shield from the elements while dressing up outfits and taking up little precious luggage space. This season, these three silk scarves are not only gorgeous summer accessories but also go to benefit preservation and restoration efforts around the world. 

Partnering with French luxury house Hermès, the Palace of Versailles released the limited-edition “Promenade à Versailles” silk twill scarf in order to raise funds for the restoration of the palace apartments. Hermès enlisted French illustrator Pierre Marie to design the fabric, which features Louis XIV’s Sun King motif surrounded by a kaleidoscopic layout of images of the palace and its gardens, including the King’s Chamber, the Hall of Mirrors, and the canals and landscapes designed by André Le Nôtre (Available for purchase through July 31; US$380).
