Hermès has long been a house of dreamers. What was once a quaint workshop in 1837 has expanded its universe into the realms of 16 métiers, joint by the pursuit of excellence and highest quality of craftsmanship. While the Hermes universe one yet to be fully explored in its full prowess of artistry and world-building, there’s one thing that can be said about the Maison—and that is it never fails to evoke a sense of wonder in the mundane.
In the latest Fall-Winter 2023 Objects collection, the Maison goes back to its roots in equestrianism. Bags are lined with fringe and braided leather to evoke classic Western sensibilities and tongue in cheek depiction of horses across silks and porcelain. Every piece in the collection harmonises aesthetics with purpose, elevating everyday essentials to extraordinary heights. The handbags, the epitome of Hermès’ allure, stands out as the crown jewels of the collection. Each bag showcases the brand’s signatures, including sumptuous leather craftsmanship and impeccable stitching.
While leatherworks may be the maison’s piece de resistance, it’s worth noting the impressive array of accessories, from whimsical charms to opulent gemstones. On the J&W front, expect riffs of the signature Cloud d’H line in bold necklaces and more subtle variations of rings and bracelets featuring the pyramid stud. An exemplary showcase of Hermes’ dedication to craftsmanship is none other than the Planètes et Météores line—comprising of four rings, each containing a multitude of of gem cuts and crafted according to the traditional ‘fil couteau’ technique while outlining a sensual cartography of precious gemstones.
