My Dear Scented Saddlebags
I’m sure you may have noticed something of a trend in The Perfumed Dandy‘s reviews this last week…
A certain leaning towards the House of Hermes?
Well, the reason is now revealed, for all this week Hermes and its Craftspeople have set up store at London’s Saatchi Galllery for their Festival des Metiers.
If you happen to be in “The Old Smoke” between now and the 27th of May you can catch the artists and artisans of this most estimable of brands at work.
This is just what The Perfumed Dandy is off to do today!
If you are not able to attend, perhaps you’d let me know….
Which Hermes craftspeople would you most like to meet?
Of course I’m sure a rendez-vous with Jean-Claude Ellena would be top of all our lists, but beyond the master parfumeur, would you like to see the watchmakers, the saddle sowers, the seamstresses, the designers or the silk printers? Or indeed anyone else…
Do tell!?! The Dandy would be ever so curious to hear your thoughts!!!
For more inspiration, why not take a peek at the exhibition website.
You never know… I may even have a snap or two of jolly folks to share afterwards!
