Drawn from the archives of Hermès, here is a delightfully illustrated collection of enchanting stories and profiles that trace the odyssey of the luxury design family business founded by Thierry Hermès in 1837.
A leather-clad wheelbarrow to store the Duchess of Windsor’s many gloves, a capricious apple tree, an extraordinary museum, an iconic bag, and a 40-year-old diary in the spotlight—these are among the characters and objects that tell the story of Hermès: Straight from the Horse’s Mouth.
Author Luc Charbin brings to life the voices of the saddlers, sales assistants, window-dressers, silversmiths, and gardeners of Hermès across several generations, accompanied by the distinctive drawings of Alice Charbin.
