Fashion culture!

We review some of the pieces and motifs symbolising luxury that have become firmly rooted nationally and internationally in fashion culture.

This silk piece has become a Hermès classic since it first appeared in 1937. Timeless! With its famous rolled hem, handsewn with the same colour thread.
