Bonjour, Kelly bag. We got to say a lot more than just hello to the iconic bag in Toronto, where Hermès is presenting the Festival des Métiers exhibit from October 2 to 6, 2013.
Fashion and design nerds won’t want to miss this exciting, one-of-a-kind glimpse into the poetry, passion and precision of Hermès artisans at the Festival des Métiers (Festival of Crafts). This engaging cultural exhibition provides a fascinating insight into the longstanding traditions and values of Hermès in crafting fine objects to the highest standards of quality.
Find out how the iconic handbags, silk scarves, ties, watches, and leather goods are created using made-by-hand techniques passed on from generation to generation. The interactive exhibition environment encourages visitors to meet and engage with artisans at their workbenches, and experience first-hand the highly-skilled trade and un-wavering attention to detail that honors the tradition of Hermès.
Festival des Métiers arrives in Toronto after a showing in London at Saatchi Gallery and in Dusseldorf.
We were fortunate to experience the wonder and craft of Hermès at a press preview earlier this week. For a glimpse into this exhibit, see our slideshow of images below.
