Iconic luxury Parisian brand Hermès celebrate 175 years with their Leather Forever exhibition in London this May. Emphasising expert craftsmanship and pedigree heritage, Hermès artisans will be present at the exhibition performing live demonstrations of hand crafting leather accessories.
The show will display archive items from the pre-Birkin era through to current modern items, some of which will be on sale with all proceeds being donated to charity. The exhibit was first shown in Shanghai, China in 2009 and follows on from last year’s Festival des Metier touring art exhibition which was hosted in Asia, Europe and the U.S.
Hermès Leather Forever, Burlington Gardens, London W1. Open 8th May – 27th May 2012, Monday to Sunday 10am until 6pm and on Fridays until 10pm. Entrance is free.
