Hermes Store

Rue Faubourg Saint-Honore

Windows Merchandise by  Leïla Menchari

 

 

Hermes store on rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré in Paris never ceases to amaze people with its windows displaying tales and stories come to life.

 

24, rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré is a historical address for Hermès, as the company founder Charles-Emile Hermès opened his workshop there in 1880. Therefore the flagship store offers surprising window displays renewed 4 times a year.

 

Leïla Menchari has been responsible for concocting the famous window displays for the Maison Hermès. As a result, it is like a little theatre in which every role should be perfect.

 

Meanwhile the publishing house Actes Sud will unveil Leïla Menchari, Queen of Enchantment, a tribute to Menchari’s remarkable career, illustrated through 137 of her window displays. To accompany the tome, Hermès mounted a companion exhibition at the Grand Palais, in collaboration with the scenographer Nathalie Crinière. “Hermès à Tire d’Aile: The Worlds of Lëila Menchari” features eight sets. To be more specific the artist is inspired by those windows so famously populated by Birkins, Kellys. Finally, most of the iconic pieces realized by Hermès craftsmen exclusively for Menchari (virtually none were ever available for purchase).
