In an Hermès World

November 11, 2010

It's no secret that we'd love to live in the fanciful world of Hermès. Take a journey with us now as we travel from Paris to India and Shangri La through their beautiful window displays.
In an Hermès World

Ahh, Hermès. We've dissected their popular Collier de chien bracelet, and are obsessed with every bag the luxury house has produced (especially those gorgeous Birkins), but that's just the tip of the iceberg.

The legendary French luxury goods house began as a harness workshop in Paris in 1837. By the twenties, Hermès had patented the zipper in France and introduced the first ladies’ bags to zip shut. In 1937, the silk scarves were introduced into the market and the company expanded with all kinds of sportswear and accessories, including the now-famous travel trunks to meet the needs of the new automobile drivers. Known for incredible craftsmanship and later the Kelly bag (introduced in 1956) and the Birkin (1984), Hermès now also has a complete home line, bed and bath linens, furniture, silverware, crystal and porcelain, office accessories and baby gifts, offering a full lifestyle collection most of us only dream of.

This week the luxury house uploaded 50 images of their stellar windows created by Leïla Menchari to Facebook. Inspired by the most intricate architecture and design from around the world, Menchari's windows have taken passersby from the Eiffel Tower to the Souks of Marrakech and beyond. See below for a few of our favorites:
