Hermes 2017 A/W window display

In Taiwan, it is typical for people to build roof top additions for all kinds of purposes, including leisurely ones like raising pigeons. We liked the apparent spontaneity of the ad hoc constructions, as well as the delicate feeling that it conveys. This is the “Object Sense” that we strive for in this season. By being in the state of improbable balance, it brings to attention the qualities inherent in Hermes products, imbuing them with character. Off balance and Unbalance.With various compositions, we tried to set up opportunities to showcase the various characteristics of the Hermes object - from the playfulness and twirly/light quality of the Twilly scarf and parfum, to showcasing the rich variety of patterns in the Balcon du Guadalquivir tableware set in a house of dishes as Hermes products. All these compositions are set against a backdrop of houses and cages, stacked in a seemingly adhoc manner, much like the rooftop additions of Taiwan. We named this window design“Balancing Objects”.
