Hermès re-opens their Paris store


ott 23, 2007

MERE weeks after Paris Fashion Week and Hermès is holding a 24-hour soirée, on the fashionable Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, to celebrate the re-opening of the house's founding store. After closing for refurbishment over a year ago, the original Hermès store will re-open 300 square feet bigger and more beautiful - with expansion on both the women and menswear floors. CEO of Hermès International, Patrick Thomas, called the refurbishment "a new step into modernity, on the very site of Hermès' birth" and, since the fashion house has been located on Paris's most stylish road since 1926, we expect the changes will be an elegant and chic reflection of the brand. As for the party…we are told to expect a myriad of musical and dance performances but, for now, the fashion house is keeping the details a secret. (October 23 2007, AM)
