Thierry Hermès, maker of fine harnesses and bridles for horses, first founded Hermès in 1837. The company logo still reflects its equestrian past, picturing a horse and carriage. When Thierry's son Charles-Émile Hermès took over, he expanded the company to also manufacture saddles, and later leather bags. These leather bags boosted Hermès' fame.
Next to the Birkin bag, the Kelly bag was among the most popular, named after Grace Kelly who fell in love with it and was often toting it in public. From then on, Hermès turned itself into a fashion and lifestyle brand, creating many classic items like their famous silk scarves and belts.
Hermès jewelry and rings often reflect back to how the brand started, using horses, bridles, and the metal parts of the harnesses as inspiration. Such an influence resulted in casual-chic pieces. The way in which the company uses materials is also unique, often combining precious metals with brightly colored lacquer or unusual engravings. This approach gives Hermès rings a very recognizable look, while their casual designs render them timeless and easy to pair with everyday outfits.
Jean-Paul Gaultier used to be one of the creative directors of Hermès
Though initially specializing in leather goods, Hermès now includes over 14 design departments ranging from scarves and ties to perfume and jewelry
For many Paris tourists, visiting the Hermés flagship store at 24 rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré is a must. Hermés first moved into this impressive building in 1880
