If your travels bring you to the Hong Kong International Airport anytime soon, be sure to check out the latest Carte Blanche installation at the Hermès boutique. The 13th in the series, this lush display features the impressively intricate work of French design duo Zim&Zou (Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann), who painstakingly created a stunning tropical world out of cut paper, featuring a monkey, toucan, and chameleon fashioned from leather scraps sourced from the Hermès workshops. Entitled The Eternal Jungle, this botanical dreamscape was inspired by the vegetation of Hong Kong, and meant to juxtapose the elegance and refinement of the Hermès world alongside more wild elements.—Ashley Churchill
