Last week Ten Towers were lucky enough to attend the opening of Hermès at Work. A travelling exhibition showcasing the great artisanal work of our favourite Hermès. Executive Vice President and a 6th generation Hermès family member, Guillaume de Seynes was present in Melbourne to launch this excellent two week event. He declined an invitation to dine with the French President to join us instead just shows how special we are to the House for this travelling exhibition.
Hermès at Work focuses on the artisans, the gem maker, the watch maker, the scarf maker and of course the saddle maker. You see, Seynes ancestor Thierry Hermès was a harness maker and in 1837 the tradition was born. Ultimate luxury. As we walked through the exhibition to meet these makers, we were overcome by the history of it, the years and years of this developed craft fuelled by family, love and a real desire for beauty. Go see for yourself and enjoy tenners.
