Fresh faces and up­dated clas­sics

Prestige (Singapore) - - CONTENTS -

Af­ter 15 months, Hermès re­opened its flag­ship bou­tique at Liat Tow­ers to much fan­fare and ex­cite­ment. Be­gin­ning with a cock­tail re­cep­tion, guests were able to ad­mire pa­pier-mâché masks and sculp­tures by French artist duo Far­felus Far­fadets, af­ter which, Axel Du­mas, CEO and sixth-gen­er­a­tion Hermès fam­ily mem­ber, gave his open­ing speech. The stir­ring fire­works dis­play that fol­lowed then drew at­ten­tion to the newly in­stalled Hermès fire­work-maker on horse­back up on the roof (this is only the se­cond store in the world to feature the iconic statue). Guests also ex­plored the new ex­panded bou­tique be­fore ad­journ­ing to a se­cret party venue on the sev­enth floor, where the ope­nair carpark was trans­formed into an ex­quis­ite party space with lounge chairs and light pro­jec­tions on the ceil­ing.
