2011 The hermes year of the contemporary Artisan

Every year Hermès choses a theme for the entire year with several carre designs dedicated to that particular theme from each of the two annual collections.

Ten years ago, Hermès celebrated “the Contemporary Artisan”.

Here the opening quote from the LE CARRÉ HERMÈS Spring Summer collection:

THE SILK WORKSHOP
Here everything is freedom. The colour, design, history, craftsman, artist, sun, light, each tells its story, but in the end, as they know, they all tell the same one: That of silk on the loose. Knotted in the hair, wound about the hips, it runs, it flies, it goes where the light is ever more luminous, the air softer, the sea warmer; it advances towards summer.
