Paris shoes - part one: Hermes pop up store

What's new?

A pop up Hermès shoe shop, open from May 14 to July 19 2012

It's just a few steps from the Hermès Rive Gauche store (exit the boutique and turn right onto the rue de Sevrès, cross the road and you'll see it coming up on the next corner)

Spring/summer 2012



Inside, all is orange or black, with the exception of a purple sand disc installation by Manuel Mérida. Click here to see an orange version in motion (part of the current FSH window displays)

Autumn/winter 2012 preview

The phrase 'living inside an orange box' has surely been taken to  a whole new level!


8 rue de Sevrès 
75006 Paris

Did I come home with a new pair of shoes? Yes! But this time the bag was red, not orange ;) More in the next post x

  4. Oooh, I can't wait for the next post MaiTai! I especially like the ones with the beautiful swirl decoration that is like a slice through a shell.

    Have a lovely weekend!

  5. Yes, I think we are all rubbing our hands together in eager anticipation to see what jumped into your bag! Perhaps a new pair of sandals?? Would love to hear your take on the fall shoes and boots. Sending warm sunshine hugs for a glorious weekend, T xx

    1. Hope you’ll like the new addition to the shoe wardrobe! The H AW 2012 preview did not particularly sing to me, just a bit too much heel for my personal taste (apart from the desert boots, which are not for me either)! You are the sweetest for sending more sunshine. It is much needed, it’s been cold and rainy all weekend. Have a happy Sunday night x

  6. Thank you as always, Mai Tai, for a glimpse inside the beautiful H boutiques in Paris. They are impressive in their simplicity and modernity. My local H boutique seems rather dull in comparison!

    Hmmmm.... new shoes in a red bag and not H? Roger Vivier perhaps? His buckled flats seem very "you"! I love mine. :)

    1. Bingo, dear Maria! I was wondering if anyone would guess. I went for a pair with a low block heel, and absolutley adore them. It was a hard decsion, there were so many beautiful ones! In the excitement I forgot to inquire about the model... will post a pic soon, please chime in in case you recognise them :)
