Designer: Hermès

A trip to Hermès, for an inside look.

I was most fascinated when I came across Shini's (of Park & Cube) pictures from her recent trip to the Hermès Atelier Sacs —with a look at some of the work, behind the scenes, where the magic happens within the production department. Following her fascination, she has snapped some wonderful photographs that take us through phases of the process of production, and were some might argue, is the heart of the company: the skills and dedication to the finest of craftsmanship; craftsmanship that Hermès is so well known for…
















Additionally interesting: in celebration of their 175th year and the brand’s unique relationship with leather, Hermès plans to host a public exhibition—starting May 8th to the 27th, (at 6 Burlington Gardens) in which some of the artisans will be showcase the creation of some of the bags. Wouldn't that be amazing to see?

  1. Fabulous photos....I'd love to go to the exhibition.

    When I went to a show at London Fashion Week last year I met Shini Park....I didn't realise she is as well known as she is! She was lovely :)
