Leather, ready-to-wear, lifestyle accessories retailer Hermès has attracted a fashionable clientele since 1837. Its new flagship store opened its doors in the Left Bank in late 2010 with the brand’s signature horseman wearing a flying scarf situated on the roof. Built atop a 1935 swimming pool, the shop was decorated by Denis Montel, who utilized disposable wood structures for the interior. Hermès may be best known for its scarves and ties, but other items include handbags, watches, gloves, belts, shoes, even fragrances.
