The Woman with Soles of Wind, is definitely one of those designs that simply takes your breath away. Details abound in Madame Honore’s carre dedicated to Alexandra David-Néel, the French Belgian feminist, Buddhist, writer and simply, La Femme Extraordinaire. By the time Alexandra was eighteen she had visited three countries on her own, and in her lifetime wrote some thirty books about philosophy, religion and of course, her travels.
She visited Lhasa Tibet in 1924 when it was not open to visits by foreigners. And it is to Tibet where we follow her on her amazing journey…
An extraordinary woman and an extraordinary tribute; the Hermes La Femme aux Semelles de Vent.
Aline Honore’s La Femme aux Semelles de Vent from 2009 was part of the Hermes Collection themed, A Beautiful Escape (Travel). Since then this design quickly became a favorite and highly sought after contemporary design.
