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.

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.

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.

Day and night, the new Hermès Heure H with lacquered dial

Hermes-Heure-H-Lacquer-GIF

A strong and unmistakable signature, the Hermès Heure H, created in 1996 under the creative impetus of the designer Philippe Mouquet, is more than just a watch: it is a symbol that has succeeded in retaining its energy, dynamism and freshness. Notably thanks to a unique idea: that of capturing time inside a letter. A strong concept and a playful and confident way in which to shape the passing of time.

Above all else, the Hermès Heure H is a style that does not follow convention. Its case epitomises a bold and joyful sense of companionship. And now, its capital H is filled with black or white lacquer. Its dial, varnished in black or white, has also been treated with lacquer, in this instance translucent so as to better reveal the pigments it protects. Immediately identifiable, the Heure H offers an interplay of rigorous stylistic and technical discipline, and creative spontaneity. The beauty of paradox.

The strap colours – eight in all – alternate the depth of black or white with the vibrancy of red, orange, yellow, blue… An interchangeable strap to suit the wearer’s mood, wish or desire, and available in two versions: the Simple Tour (onceround) and the Double Tour (twice-round) – a Hermès emblem invented by Martin Margiela.

The lacquered Hermès Heure H is available in two sizes: medium and small. Cases, dials and straps are finely crafted down to their finest details in the Hermès watchmaking workshops in Switzerland. Objects shaped by artisans to make them true companions for those who wear them. 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. 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 recreation. Daring to capture time, to play with it. This is what is made possible by the Heure H, whose earnest reliability and creative charm multiply endlessly to construct an intensely personal time.

Maison Margiela Beach Walk

The Parisian fashion house Maison Martin Margiela was founded in 1988 by Belgian designer Martin Margiela. A cross-section between fashion and design, the house presents Haute Couture and ready-to-wear collections as well as leather goods, footwear, accessories, and fragrance. In 1994, Maison Martin Margiela introduced ‘REPLICA,’ a new seasonal line. The collection represents an interest in highly functional and emotive garments and accessories, meticulously reproduced to maintain the piece’s original character. Maison Martin Margiela expanded upon this concept with a collection of ‘REPLICA’ fragrances that evoke the scents hidden deep in our memories.

Perfumes have a tendency to remind you of certain moments or periods of your life, for example, I can put on a fragrance that takes me back to high school and your first love (Christian Dior Jules) or the times of endless desert nights in Jordan (Jil Sander Background). A good perfume is so much more than just a nice scent, it’s also connected to feelings and memories. Thats why I’ve always liked the thought of wearing a special fragrance during vacation (Bvlgari Eau the Vert, Hermès Eau de Hermès), so that I can relate to relaxation and well being when I’m wearing it. It’s possible I got kind of mesmerized by the words on the bottle but in this case they actually do make sense, even before the scent has becomed ‘yours’ you recognize it and I’m not kidding! ‘Reproduction of familiar scents and moments of varying locations and periods’ with a touch of ‘Sun kissed salty skin’ really spells out what this little bottle is all about and, well,  that’s more than enough for me.

Perfumers who were invited to participate in creation of the new collection are Jacques Cavallier and Marie Salamagne. Beach Walk opens with citruses – bergamot and lemon, and develops with pink pepper, ylang-ylang, coconut milk, musk and heliotrope to evoke a familiar but forgotten moment – a walk along a sandy beach

From now on this perfume will be forever associated with a sunny, perfect vacation and I’ll make sure to always bring it with me when I’m fortunate enough to go on another one of those.

Close your eyes and let the fragrance transport you to the memory of an afternoon stroll along the ocean. Your feet sink into the wet sand as waves brush against your skin. The sun sinks gently through the crystal sky, its warmth balanced by a soft breeze with the subtle tangy scent of water. Beach Walk evokes hints of ocean spray, and captures the carefree bliss of a summer day.

The silhouette of each ‘REPLICA’ bottle is inspired by classic apothecary jars, allowing the collection to be instantly identifiable. Each bottle carries a 100 percent cotton label, which is printed using black ink text and resembles the tags used on the clothing and accessories for the ‘REPLICA’ couture collection. The unique pumps are wrapped with a rope to symbolize the authentic reproduction of the original ‘REPLICA’ couture line.

Notes: Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Lemon, Ylang Ylang, Coconut Milk, Heliotrope, Musk,

Maison Margiela Beach Walk is availble as 100 ml Eau de Toilette and is an Allure Best of Beauty Award winner.
