Imagine a brand being this succesful for almost two centuries! Hermès just celebrated its 175 year anniversary, and opened an exhibition in London on Tuesday ‘Leather Forever‘.
It all started with saddles and harnesses, and grew into the prestigious luxury brand it is today. Collecting Birkin’s in each colour available like Victoria Beckham does, might be a bit over the top, yet it’s difficult to surpass the iconic products the Parisian fashion house has put on the map. From the ‘carré’ silk scarves to the leather goods, the house has always stayed true to its heritage and quality standards.
Curious about the history of Hermès? Then off to London’s Royal Academy of Art’s sister space, 6 Burlington Gardens.
Until May 27th. Free entrance.
