The designer Bible - Part 43. - Hermes

Hermés was established in 1837 by Thierry Hermés. First they made leather bags and other goods. To make a leather Hermés bag took approximately 18-24 hours.


Today they are specialized in leather, lifestyle accessories, perfumery, luxury goods and ready-to-wear. They use the logo with the carriage and horse from the 1950's.  The famous Hermés scarf was introduced in 1937 and it was worn by several celebrities, like Queen Elizabeth II, Grace Kelly or Sharon Stone in Basic Instinct.
