De­signs for life be­tween the sea and the sky

Red Magazine - - Contents - WORDS TISHA RAMIREZ

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.
