There once was… a drawing.
A drawing tells stories. It surprises and teases…
Balancing between reality and imagination…
An impish companion, it illustrates this Hermès year of tales.
Once… twice… a thousand times upon a time.
Pierre-Alexis Dumas, Artistic Director of Hermès
For Hermès, 2010 is a year of tales to be told. Remember my previous post about this? This issue is actually filled with lots of beautiful illustrations by Philippe Dumas who is the grandson of Emile Hermès. He is also a designer of Hermès scarves or carré and an illustrator of children’s literature.
While there are certainly lots of interesting articles and stories to read, I found that most of the photos they chose for this issue were very “safe” and were not as creative as the previous year’s issues. However, they were still interesting to look at and made me add a few things to my wish list.
For the Man:
For the Woman:
And of course, lots of bags!
They also have this new service set from La Table d’Hermès. It is called Les Maison Enchantées .
Nice, isn’t it? There’s still a lot more to see but you’ll have to get your own copy.
What are you waiting for? Go! Now!
