The Story Behind
Caleche elastique design:
The caleche and its groom, an emblematic Hermes image, become elastic! By means of transformation, distortion and metamorphosis, the classic image is reimagined. The long-necked, long-legged horse pulls a curious carriage. The elegant silhouette of the groom, meanwhile, is reproduced in an enigmatic shadow. As if reflected in a distorting mirror, this transfigured design is full of surprises!
Etriers Remix design:
This classic design by the house is presented in new hues. Françoise de La Perrière was inspired by the Émile Hermès collection, which features numerous elements of equestrian harnesses, to create Etriers. Their beauty reflects the infinite diversity of technical and aesthetic innovations over the ages and across borders. Highlighting a collection of stirrups from the 18th and 19th centuries, the artist takes us on a journey from South America to the Middle East via France and Spain. Designed for riding either astride or sidesaddle, the adornments gracing the stirrups are extremely refined. Finely wrought flowers, stars and mythical beasts make them as precious as jewelry.Hermes
