Two stories caught my attention in the new Hermès magazine, Le Monde d’Hermes. The first is an amazing sounding exhibition celebrating Leïla Menchari, Hermès‘ extraordinary secret weapon, whose legendary window displays brought a playful spirit to the brand for 35 years. The exhibition, ‘Hermès à tire-d’aile — Les mondes de Leïla Menchari‘ will run from 9th Nov to 3rd Dec 2017 at the Grand Palais, Paris.
I also discovered the work of Karel Martens, an artist and typographer who prints graphic shapes onto cards, tickets and other discarded paper matter. I love these geometric patterns and hot and cool colour combos…
