Luxury beset for the true son of Zeus...
Since 1837 the house of Hermes has been known the world round as the pinnacle of luxury and good taste. Still housed in Paris on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, where they have and still do sell to the worlds nobility. The company's history of the finest craftsmanship in their equestrian goods translated seamlessly into apparel in the late 1920s. Hermes goes as far as to spin their own silk and to weave their own fabrics to ensure that their grade of textile is far more luxurious than any competitor. It takes nearly 250 silk cocoons to make one Hermes scarf. Only one print design is developed each season and it is hand printed each and every time, in each and every color.
As classic of a brand as we see it, Hermes has always maintained themselves as a fashion forward company. From being the first company to use zippers in the teens to utilizing scarves to make garments as early as the 1950s, to ostrich leather trousers in the 1970s, to designers such as Martin Margiela and Jean Paul Gaultier at the helm. When one buys and wears Hermes, they are transported personally into an old world of true luxury. A world where synthetics and machine processes have never existed. So weather you are Queen Elizabeth ll herself sitting for a portrait or Sharon Stone getting creative in the bedroom, Hermes truly never goes out of style.
