Hermès establishes itself at Shanghai’s centre.
The Parisian leather specialist opens its fifth Hermès flagship in the heart of Shanghai, in the Huangpu district.
In the midst of the skyscrapers and glistening facades of the city, a long redbrick building with a slanted roof surrounded by a garden emerges. It is within this three-storey structure that Hermès inaugurates its first boutique in all of China, designed and created by Parisien architectural agency RDAI, under the direction of Denis Montel. The top floor, which is dedicated to temporary events, commences with an exhibition “The Hermès Horse”, invented by artist Philippe Dumas. This is a happy coincidence that ties in with the Chinese year of the horse.
