The sun is shining in Trondheim today, and for the first day in months I can wear heels without fearing for my life on the stupid ice. That has put me in a very good mood, which can only be further improved by giving you all a fabulous designer day. For today, therefore, I’m taking you back to one of the oldest fashion houses still existing: Hermés.
Hermés was founded in 1837, and first concentrated on making and selling harness for the fancy folk of Paris. In 1900 they also started making bags, and actually held the exclusive right of using zippers for leather goods and clothing. By 1918, Hermés was designing clothing as well. And that is, after all, what we want to see, right?
In 2004, Jean Paul Gaultier presented his first, glorious collection for Hermés. Gaultier has remained with Hermés up until now, but will in September this year be replaced by Christopher Lemaire.
By the way, did you know that Hermés also produce the Birkin bag?
I need to own one.
But, some more clothes, shall we?
Varied and lovely and excellent.
