Designs for life between the sea and the sky
Hermès makes home designs that fit in with the universe of external houseware. The coordinated printed and jacquard fabrics can be used to dress up terrace furniture, poolside pieces, even boats. Keeping to the tradition of using the best textiles, Hermès fabrics are a mix of technical practice and appealing design.
Four color harmonies bring its current designs to life: Atlantique is where the blue of the sea is combined with shades of gray and navy blue. Illuminated coral with naturally hot and sunny notes mark Terracotta, while the contrasts of yellow, bright blue, and brown can be seen in Émeraude. Lastly, Sable presents a more natural range of colors that express the soft and neutral tones of both dry and wet sand and driftwood.
These color stories are thoughtfully used among five different designs. Primary of them is the Perspective cavalière bayadére, done through canvas printing. Here, design duo Anamorphée developed a design of the word “Hermès” based on cavalier projection, which is the technique used to produce two-dimensional images of three-dimensional objects. The Pavage prints, meanwhile, designed by Philippe Mouquet, are also done through canvas printing, inspired by an Hermès tie design and featuring a geometric pattern that echoes the Parisian pavement. A jacquard technique is used for both the Terre d’H and Mini circuit 24 patterns. Also designed by Mouquet, Terre d’H features one of his timeless drawings: a graphic letter H, integrated into a contemporary design. Designed by Benoit Perry Emery, the Mini circuit 24 pattern mimics the well-known design of Hermès’ Chaîne d’Ancre or Anchor chain bracelet, with the patterns linked together just like in the jewelry piece. With the last pattern Horizon, the twill fabric of the brand’s iconic silk scarf inspires its diagonal weaving. A solid color provides a base for all the other patterns in the collection.
