Bloody Affair at Hermes

Studio Toogood has teamed up with the house of Hermès to launch petit h – a creative and poetic new take on the iconic Hermès brand that finds recreation in re-creation. The entire ground floor of the flagship Bond Street store will be dedicated to a custom-designed Studio Toogood interior that acts as an antidote to West End slickness. In keeping with petit h’s theme of exuberant reinvention, the utilitarian white space repurposes the distinctive shapes and templates of signature Hermès bags for a series of sculptural displays in glossy leather and resin.

The staff too will be getting involved...

All the things presented are shown as they would be in a real room: it’s not just about buying...
