Hermes may consider orange as its house colour. But if the ongoing installation at its art space at Liat Towers and the windows at its newly opened Takashimaya Shopping Centre duplex are anything to go by, then the French maison is in a blue state of mind right now.
The latter is a surrealist scenescape swathed in a sea of blue — azure, cobalt, turquoise — and features larger-than-life underwater creatures and floating mermaids holding items like the Cape Cod timepieces and the Filet d’Or necklaces. All that vibrancy fits into the maison’s theme of “Nature at Full Gallop” this year.
Part art installation, part visual merchandising magic, it continues Hermes’ tradition for witty and quirky window displays. Among the standouts designs we have spotted in the past include floating plates, life-sized horses and flying ties.
Here, we uncover the names behind the work and zoom in on the details you need to know about the display, which will be up till February 2017.
