After Antonio Citterio and Shigeru Ban, this year during Milan Design Week, Hermès presented their latest collection 'Nécessaire d’Hermès' designed by Philippe Nigro. The collection is basically of items 'necessary' for daily living, thus its name. The collection is of 8 elements, the main feature is the bench with hidden drawers, all seamless in design and finish. The collection also includes poufs, tables, clothes hanger, and a screen. All designs relate to the Hermès style, to the point, well handcrafted, but with fabrics from the ever so popular Hermès collection.
SC Global Developments, a leading luxury residential property developer, unveiled on May 16,2012 a private hospitality apartment decorated by Hermès at its flagship development, The Marq on Paterson Hill, in Singapore. This is the first apartment entirely decorated by Hermès and will be held by SC Global Developments for private engagements. This exceptional project combines an innovative approach to architectural design by SC Global with the unique style of an interior of timeless elegance and craftsmanship created by the Parisian house.
Once a sweat cloth, now a fashion statement, the scarf has become one of the must-have accessories for every woman to spice up her look. But to Hermès it became not only that, but part of the legendary brand’s identity as well. In the light of that, they came up with the idea of Le Carré Hermès, a book all about the famous Hermès square scarves. This book features 150 scarves each of which tells a story through its colors, designs, and patterns. The book is by the art and architecture writer Nadine Coleno.
Inspired by Burberry‘s “Art of The Trench” which was a big hit, Hermès launched at the beginning of this month “J’aime Mon Carré“. A web site dedicated to the “Carré” and all the ways girls around the world are wearing it. It even teaches you how you can wear it or tie it in the same way. The possibilities of wearing the scarf are endless. Most Luxury brands have among their collections beautifully designed scarves and pashminas. Below you will find images from those brands namely Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Salvatore Ferragamo,Missoni, & Emilio Pucci. The first batch is from the book “Le Carré Hermès”, the remaining are selections from each brand’s Fall/ Winter 2010/11 collection.
Hope you like them.
