FSH update


Last week, the horseman on FSH's rooftop was holding the same Aloha Carrés as on my previous visit to Paris,

..but the new corner window display could not have been more different from the opulent wonderland of flowers, patisseries and sweets from the previous display:

This time, the atmosphere and materials were ultra sharp and modern, with a beautiful horse made of layers of leather and stainless steel as a centerpiece in the corner window, amongst Kellys and a Bolide in fresh spring colours..






And more beautiful arrangements.. the windows along the rue Fbg St Honoré and the rue Boissy d'Anglas

  1. The creativity of Hermes never ceases to amaze and impress. Details, details- from the handbags to the windows. I think the horse and the clean modern stainless steel showing of the bags make the windows my favorite ever.

    Thank you for sharing the photos MaiTai. You have such a fun, generous spirit.

  9. Ah, April in Paris...so lovely! The window displays are beautiful as always. I love the stark,clean, freshness of the stainless and leather horse. Yet, each following shot does not fail to draw me in. Hard to pick a favorite from the stunning neutrals to the bright pops of color,each is a feast for the eyes!
    So happy you had this lovely day and forever grateful to you for taking us all along!

  10. My dearest MaiTai,
    These windows are truly something else - who else can bring together stainless steel, leather and silk so beautifully and naturally - almost warm and sensual, quite intriguing. And against the clean and metallic background, the bags must have stood out and sparkled like jewels. The last trio of the treasured red beauties just go straight to my heart. Thank you for always sharing so generously with all of us, and a million compliments for the great photography - everything so near and vivid, like one can reach to touch. Hope you'll have a most lovely Sunday, with much love and the happiest hugs xx

  12. Love your blog! These pics are delicious...!
    Off topic question: have you done any posts illustrating scarf options with the Hermes Romance belt/scarf ring or the Hermes Bradoon Bridle Stainless? If you have, please tell me the date stamp of those posts. Thank you so much!
    TTFN!

  13. Those red croc bags, oh my! And that saddle in the top picture, is that metallic leather?

    No matter the theme or aesthetic, these windows are always jaw-droppingly gorgeous.

  15. Stunning as always; those stylists outdo themselves every new season. I am in serious lust for the brown crocodile Bolide, and everything else as well! Thanks for the lovely view!

  16. My dear ladies, you are so sweet to have commented, it always makes my day to come here and read everyones thoughts. So glad you enjoyed the trip to FSH, it is always such a pleasure to share here with you. xx

    A, the bag is a Kelly Pochette

    FrmBkln, I don't have the Romance or the Bradoon Bridle, but perhaps these Mors ring links might help:

    Deja Pseu, the saddles baffle me.. they are metallic leather(the first one is embossed with animals, flowers etc) but they are also adorned with studs.. beautiuful to look at, but less convenient in a practical sense!
