Hermès has a resonance that very few other brands can brag about as well: it has been almost two hundred years that the French luxury brand exists and provides us with the ultimate elegant items that we sometimes didn’t even know we needed but sure craved after we had seen what Hermès managed to make out of those.
At first a harnesses and saddles maker, Hermès was soon so known and praised that Tsar Nicolas II actually went all the way from Russia to get his horse riding apparel from the French luxury craftsman.
With more and more celebrities and royals amongst its clients, Hermès grew a reputation and the appropriate funds to develop its activities and so become the generously amazing fashion and life style brand we know and love.
This big family business is one of the most versatile brands of the French luxury landscape without ever getting mixed up – each collection and each item has a DNA and a belonging that is a hundred percent Hermès.
Discreet over tacky, innovation over iteration, quaint and yet resolutely modern, sophisticated to the extreme but very simple looking… the creations of Hermès are masterpieces of the art of managing the luxury paradox to make each item a pure testimony of their sense of elegance and style, without ever trying to match with trends but rather the very inner needs and whims of the time. And what more would you expect from a brand that has been successful for nearly two hundred years?
From scarves, clothes, jewels, lifestyle items such as furniture, leisure items such has saddles, fragrances… Hermès does everything, and does it with their discreet yet luxury signature touch – and all of it wrapped in orange, please!
This French brand is really one of the most innovative and capable there is – along with being one of the oldest and coolest –, and whatever item they tackle revisiting, it ends up being a work of art and craftsmanship.
