Her­mès re­opens the doors of its now ex­panded two-level bou­tique

Philippine Tatler Homes - - SHOP -

Seven years since it first opened its flag­ship store in Makati, lux­ury brand Her­mès wel­comed its loyal pa­trons to a newly re­fur­bished store. The two-level bou­tique ra­di­ates clean lines and open spa­ces, its 118-square-me­tre ground floor and 124-square-me­tre first floor flaw­lessy joint by a trans­par­ent ver­ti­cal lift that of­fers guests a clear view of each level. Ex­ud­ing a touch of tra­di­tional Her­mès aes­thet­ics, the brand’s ‘Ex Lib­ris’ mo­tif is promi­nently fea­tured on both floors and high­lighted by ‘Grecque’ light­ing, a trade­mark de­sign orig­i­nally crafted for Her­mès’ Fauborg Saint-hon­oré store in Paris.

Oc­cu­py­ing a large part of the new space, “La Mai­son,” the brand’s line of fur­ni­ture and home ac­cou­trements, show­cases neatly laid­out des­ig­na­tions for the din­ing room, liv­ing room, and work ar­eas. Exquisitely-de­signed fur­ni­ture are strate­gi­cally dis­trib­uted and placed

to com­plete the il­lu­sion of the nooks with home­ware ob­jects in­clud­ing table­ware, cush­ions, pil­lows, linens, and even wall fab­rics and wall­pa­per sam­ples.

At the open­ing cel­e­bra­tion, guests were trans­ported to a sur­prise venue from the store premises—a bas­ket­ball court that was trans­formed into a whim­si­cal un­der-the-sea for­est to re­flect the brand’s theme for the year, ‘na­ture at full gal­lop.’ Here, guests en­joyed a spe­cial spread cre­ated by the Makati Shangri-la chefs and chill beats by DJ Kat.

Her­mès has al­ways made the qual­ity of its prod­ucts an ut­most pri­or­ity with pas­sion­ate ar­ti­sans who con­trib­ute to spread­ing its val­ues and cre­at­ing beau­ti­ful, time­less, and in­no­va­tive ob­jects in a spirit of con­stant in­no­va­tion.
