There are more to Hermés than just Birkin bags, Collier de Chien bracelets and silk carrés. Sure, the French maison has created an empire based on the aforementioned accessories and more, but let us not forget that it originated as a harness-maker and saddler. Employing and translating that same leather expertise for horse-riding paraphernalia onto its now-signature leather goods and accessories, along with a range of other pieces which include but not limited to home furnishings, is rather impressive.
This May, Hermès invites you to discover a part of its heritage. The Hermès Heritage–In Motion exhibition will make its stop in Singapore at Hermès Liat Towers for nine days from 11 – 19 May 2019. The exhibition is part of a Hermès Heritage touring exhibition series that began with Harnessing the roots, followed by Rouges Hermès.
In Motion will explore Hermès' fascination and connection with mobility, showcasing objects and pieces that embody the desire to travel. These will include Hermès creations that were dug out from deep within its archives, objects from Émile Hermès' (the son of founder Thierry Hermés) personal collection, as well as contemporary designs.
You wouldn't want to miss taking a look at Hermès very first scarf design, the very French Flâneur d'Hermès bicycle, as well as the Bolide picnic bag, a representation of how Hermès' designs have evolved and travelled through time.
The 'Hermès Heritage—In Motion' exhibition will open to the public from 11 – 19 May 2019 at the Hermès Liat Towers boutique. Admission is free and the exhibition opens daily from 10.30am – 8pm. View a sneak peek at some of the pieces that will be on display at the gallery above.
