The first thing that leaps to mind when one mentions Hermes is probably the brand’s iconic Birkin bag but that aside, it’s also known for its vivid visual merchandising. If you’ve ever walked past an Hermes store, you’ll notice that the windows are always filled with vivid dioramas that genuinely attempt to craft a mini-world of stories. Most other high-fashion brands attempt to do so but it is at Hermes where it’s clear that they go the extra mile.
Now, if you’re a fan of great design, look out for Hermes’ upcoming exhibition, entitled “Through The Walls” – it aims to present the brand’s extensive homeware repertoire in a, shall we say, experimental style that’s inspired by the late American artist, Gordon Matta-Clark, who was known for his deconstructionist approach to architecture.
This is one exhibition not to be missed – especially since you won’t be able to replicate the experience elsewhere; “Through The Walls” is a world-first and custom-made for the Singapore store. To top it all off, there’ll also be free art and design workshops for the public to partake in. Do look out for whimsical pieces such as this skateboard:
“Through The Walls” is on from 7 to 29 October at Hermes’ Liat Towers flagship store.
