Hermès unveils new Beijing flagship

French Maison Hermès has unveiled a newly transformed flagship store in Beijing’s business district, in the China World Trade Centre. 

The ‘eye-catching façade that beckons from afar’, covers two floors and more than 900 sq m. The 11m-high storefront is said to be ‘a technical feat of engineering and craftsmanship’ cast in undulating, engraved double-glass panels, that ‘evoke a forest of bamboo’.

The store can be accessed both from inside the mall and the street and features the complete Hermès line-up across women’s and men’s fashion, accessories, beauty and home collections.

The interior was created by Parisian architecture agency RDAI as an ‘open plan and fluid layout, awash with a feeling of lightness and tranquillity’. It features ‘nuanced pastels and mineral hues, like celadon and gold, of traditional etchings and paintings’. The murals on the first floor were painted on Chinese wild silk; and the woven bamboo on the second floor was also locally sourced. There are also bespoke design details ‘realised via a tremendous collaborative process with local craftsmen, such as the nuanced terrazzo floors (made of Chinese stone and pebble aggregate), the renowned Faubourg Saint-Honoré mosaics, hand-fashioned furnishings and cabinetry’. 

The first floor houses silks, perfumes and fashion jewellery, plus menswear. There’s also a men’s made-to-measure salon set off to the side for added privacy for higher-spending customers. 

A split staircase, which gives visitors a view of the two levels of the store, is backed by a 3D plaster wall that echoes the façade. It leads to up the larger second floor that houses leather goods, watches and jewellery, home collections and womenswear, plus a private VIP room. 

The Maison said that throughout the space, a “carefully curated selection of art illuminates the relationship between Hermès and China”. The two notable commissioned artworks, are an equestrian-inspired triptych by French artist Jean-Louis Sauvat that sits almost suspended from the wall above the staircase, and an ink drawing by Chinese artist Li Xin in the perfume area.

With a focus on local anchoring and sustainable natural materials, Hermès is developing its environmentally responsible culture through the renovation of its store in the heart of the China World mall in Beijing, which opened on 30 April.

The new Hermès store in Beijing China World combines artistic heritage and local know-how with the architectural codes of the Hermès Faubourg Saint-Honoré store, in Paris, in order to introduce visitors to the Maison’s métiers. Come into the beautiful world of Hermès.

Hermès H24 decodes the modern man

The world of fragrance is synonymous with the concept of the ‘Modern Man’, as stereotypes of smelling good have been deconstructed and have transformed from a once vein action into something of a commonality. With the idea of the modern man in mind, French Maison Hermès has created its latest olfactory experience that’s captured in a scent titled ‘H24’.

H24, a fragrance beyond the lines

Hermès H24 is considered the first major launch for men in 15 years, after Terre d’Hermès, which was created by Jean-Claude Ellena in 2006. Created by perfumer Christine Nagel, H24 looks to combine nature and technology with a sequence of contrasting scents that deliver something contemporary yet traditional, expected but still unconventional as the scent develops on your skin.

Christine Nagel, who loves to give her creations volume or texture, wanted to recreate textures of fine materials such as cashmere, silk, and velvet. The perfumer collaborated with the creative director of the men’s department of the French Maison, Véronique Nichanian, to create H2, a perfume inspired by the ready-to-wear collections and Nichanian’s opus.

I like to go towards natural, very classic raw materials, and work them using technologies that give them other renderings, other textures.

Christine Nagel, Hermès in-house perfumer

With this in mind, top notes of clary sage act as the backbone for H24, making for a botanical experience throughout the scent journey. This is combined with narcissus, rosewood, and sclarene, with the latter’s green and earthy scent soon transforming to represent the ‘modern’ part of H24 as it develops into something reminiscent of hot, metallic iron.

H24 is bottled in a design by Philippe Mouquet, whose flacon is shaped by the idea of an invisible hand that has gripped and manipulated the structure. The flacon is made of recycled glass and can be refilled. It’s packaged in a 100-percent recycled and recyclable paper box, which nods to the ideas behind the scent itself.

Hermès H24 is available in spray flacons of 50 and 100ml, a refill flacon of 125ml, and a travel spray of 15ml. at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Hermès.

French Maison Hermès a Diversity Leader

The Piano of 24 Colors by Hermès

Earlier this year, French Maison Hermès attracted much attention from the beauty world after announcing its new makeup line that kicked off with their beyond-divine sustainable lipstick line – 10 matte and 14 satin shades that come in refillable packaging and faintly smell of sandalwood. Now, the French Maison is giving customers the chance to buy 24 colors of the product in one go.

Colors for me are like musical notes. Combining them creates sonority and harmony, composing a range of colors like musical scales. The 24 colors of our lipsticks resonate together like piano keys. Having them all to hand allows you to play endlessly.

Jérôme Touron, Hermès Beauty’s creative director

Dubbed the ’24-Color Piano’, the Hermès lipsticks arrive in a gift box that, literally, is as long as a piano, spanning 88.3 centimeters. The the set is filled with 24 Rouge Hermès lipsticks designed by Pierre Hardy. The 24 number is in reference to the Hermès address in Paris, 24 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honorè, which means it could also work perfectly as an advent calendar.

Beautifully packaged in the label’s signature orange bag in addition to the box, the collection includes all of the signature shades such as ‘Beige Naturel’, ‘Rouge Orange’ and ‘Rose Lipstick’. So dear Santa – if I happen to find the Hermès Piano under my tree this year, I promise to play it every single day. A lipstick a day keeps the sorrow away!

If you don’t have space (or funds) for the entire piano, the lipsticks are also sold individually and still come in the classic, giftable packaging. Hermès Piano of 24 Colors is just limited to 440 boxes, and is available at select Hermès stores. Come into the beautiful world of Hermès.

Hermès opens the doors of new Stockholm Boutique

On the 9th of October, Hermès is delighted to open the doors of its new address in Stockholm sits on the ground floor of Nordiska Kompaniet, the heritage-listed Art Nouveau department store.

The design draws on Stockholm’s historic cityscape and oneness with nature. In a nod to Scandinavian design, central structural columns have been plastered and reimagined as modernist, sculptural forms. Feature walls, clad in undulating cherrywood panelling, add warmth and texture to the room.

The result displays a marked appreciation of organic form, abundant light and a sense of spaciousness that provides a convivial backdrop and ideal scene in which to peruse the sixteen métiers of the Maison.

Hermès Spring 2021 Menswear Epitomizes Louche Luxury

hermes-spring-2021-menswear-runway-collection-01A

On Sunday 5 July, French Maison Hermès unveiled its Men’s Spring-Summer 2021 collection, designed by Véronique Nichanian, through ‘Horse-Champ’, a performance created with the artistic collaboration of Cyril Teste.

This sequence-shot was filmed live in the heart of the house’s workshops, which have been located in Pantin, France, since 1992. A lively place that brings together creators, product developers, craftsmen, and support functions. Today, 2,000 people work for Hermès between Pantin and Bobigny.

The French Maison has already proven its resilience in the ongoing pandemic and now the luxury label is demonstrating its inimitable approach to effortlessly muted luxury. Its Spring 2021 menswear offering keeps in line with artistic director Véronique Nichanian’s previous collections, yielding a sleek range quietly informed by peerless quality.

First shown via the digital presentation seen below, Hermès then shot the seasonal collection and transposed it atop a digital background, keeping in line with the social distancing precautions that many fashion labels are currently observing. As usual Hermès centralized its clothing line on its rich textiles and carefree details.

Collarless harrington jackets, ribbed sweaters and striped layers in various hues meshed insouciantly, upholding the house’s zest for breezy, comfortably styling. This motif was driven home by drawstring slacks, rolled shirts, thoughtlessly popped collars and Hermès’ signature leather belt, tucked into itself to allow the tail to fly free.

Illustrative abstract patterns grace shirts cut with just enough slouch to billow out from the elasticated waistbands they were tucked into, subverting any sense of stiffness. A host of leather-accented items, including watches, necklaces and duffel bags, were even more minimal than the subtly stylish garments.

Hermès launches beauty

Rouge-Hermès-01

French Maison Hermès has several claims to fame from its iconic silk scarves to its legendary Birkin bag, but never has the Maison attempted to enter the beauty category. All that is about to change now that the 183-year-old brand has launched a line of lipsticks called Rouge Hermès.

The collection of 24 colors is inspired by Hermès’ archive of 75,000 silk scarves and 900 leather shades. The packaging – designed by Pierre Hardy, Hermès creative director of jewelry and shoes – is made from the same metals as the hardware on their handbags, and the lipsticks are (like in the ole’days) also refillable, making that packaging a long-term investment. Fitting for a lipstick with a 67 dollar price point.

Rouge-Hermès-02

We wanted to do refillable so we could use more luxurious materials that had their own value. The idea is a form that’s both simple and playful enough to allow it to be done and redone ad infinitum. It’s rare for an artistic director to think about packaging over a long period of time and not just a one-off.

Pierre Hardy

Rouge-Hermès-03

In addition to lipsticks, Hermès has plans to launch a new beauty category every six months, although they wouldn’t confirm what products or hard dates. Rouge Hermès lipsticks will be available at Hermès Boutiques and selected stores worldwide.
