French Maison Hermès a Diversity Leader

A creator, artisan and seller of high-quality objects since 1837, Hermès is an independent, family-owned French house that employs more than 15,000 people worldwide. Driven by its permanent entrepreneurial spirit and consistently high standards, Hermès cultivates the freedom and autonomy of each individual through responsible management.

The company perpetuates the transmission of exceptional know-how through strong territorial presence that respects people and nature, a source of exceptional materials. Fifteen artisanal métiers nurture the creativity of the Maison, whose collections are presented in over 300 stores around the world.

Now Hermès reached the fifth position in the ‘Diversity Leaders’ ranking published by the British newspaper Financial Times, which assesses employees’ perception of companies’ inclusiveness and efforts to promote various aspects of diversity. To establish it, an independent survey was conducted in 16 European countries among more than 100,000 employees from 15,000 companies.

French Maison Hermès is a mosaic of men and women who work every day for its development all over the world. Maintaining its diversity of people and talents is at the foundation of the Maison’s richness and creativity. As a responsible employer, Hermès continues to develop concrete actions in favour of ethics, diversity management, inclusiveness, gender balance, and integrating people with disabilities.

Well deseved. I would like to go a little step further: In the years that I worked for Hermès, I cannot say otherwise, that Hermès is one big family. It was never important whether you are male or female, what color your skin is, wheter you are straight or gay, or…… Those details are not important, it’s about who yóu are…. Hermès was – and still is – way ahead of its time.

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.

Hermès Presents Heure H

HyperFocal: 0

A strong and steadfast signature, French Maison Hermès’ Heure H was created in 1996 under the impetus of the designer Philippe Mouquet is more than a watch. It is indeed a symbol, which has maintained its edginess, its dynamism and its freshness over the years, thanks largely to the singular idea of capturing time inside a letter. An amusing way to frame the passing of time.

An object of Hermès’ leather goods expertise, the double tour strap – designed by Martin Margiela for his first fashion show for Hermès in 1998 – fits seamlessly into the case and accentuates its graphic shape. This watch band features a dual nature, with a classic finish between the case lugs and a geometric micro-perforated H pattern on the second loop around the wrist. To achieve a transparent effect, a wafer-thin sliver of Beton leather is inserted between the two strap sections.

HyperFocal: 0

Crafted by Hermès Horloger artisans, the Heure H watch case is available in two versions. The first, made of steel, is adorned with an apricot or vermillion strap, while the second rose gold-plated variation comes with a black or etoupe strap.

The white lacquered dial, punctuated by four Arabic numerals and metallic hands, strikes a pleasing contrast with the strap colours. The overall result is a perfect match between rigorous stylistic and technical disciplines, highlighted by the precision of a deft and expert touch.

HyperFocal: 0

Objects shaped by the hands of artisans to make them true companions for those who wear them. Practical, functional and stemming from uncompromising expertise, they radiate the lightness of the unexpected. They make everyday life their playground, and each instant a uniquely special moment.

For Hermès, time is also an object. Its inherent tension is translated by the house into a singular characteristic. Rather than measuring, ordering, and seeking to control it, Hermès dares to explore another time, designed to arouse emotions, open up interludes and create spaces for spontaneity and recreation.
