Hermès Rue de Sèvres

Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s the last day of May, I guess I really should finish this post which has been in my draft folder for quite some time. For those of us who appreciate Hermès, a trip to Paris won’t be complete without dropping by one of their stores. Among all H stores in Paris, the newly opened one on the left bank is my absolutely favorite. There is nothing spectacular from the outside. However, stepping inside, the first thing that embraces you is the smell. Since the entrance of the store is a flower shop bursting with most gorgeous blooms by florist Baptiste Pitou. Further inside comes the most amazing part of the store, an installation made of curved strips of ash wood by architect Denis Montel. More surprises come when you walk further, there are even a book shop and a tea bar inside! The three floored store is used mainly to showcase furniture and homewares. But you can also find a small counter for scarves as well as one section for leather goods. Even if you are not into Hermès, their store on Rue de Sèvres is well worth a visit. ;-)

    Thank you gals! :-)

    CCC & purseaddict, I am sure you’ll not be disappointed.

    miss sophie, yes, I’ve heard about “Shangxia” and also seen some pictures online. The interior seems really simple and extreme understated. Hope to visit the boutique one day!

    am also a big fan of Peony, though they dont last long.
    the short-lived beauty has a mixture of elegance and fragility.
