Texas women are nothing if not collectors — and anything that comes in those covetable orange boxes tops the list. The latest must? La Vie Sauvage Du Texas, the Hermès scarf by Kermit Oliver, the Waco post-office employee who is the only American ever to design scarves for the storied French company. This one, Oliver’s 17th for the company, is a celebration of Texas wildlife. Nearly 120 native animals — the bobwhite quail, Rio Grande turkey and requisite longhorn included — grace the signature silk twill, which comes in four color options. (We expect the pink to be a Dallas sellout.) A portion of the proceeds goes to the Caesar Kleberg Wildlife Research Institute at Texas A&M University-Kingsville. As always, Hermès is going to make you work for one of these sought-after 90-centimeter squares: A limited edition of just 2,000 exists. Happy hunting. $435, Hermès Highland Park Village, 214-528-0197, hermes.com —Bradley Agather Means
