Genius Show Window – Hermès

Posted in Places, Shops, Stuff by tokyobling on December 14, 2009

The other day in Ginza I walked past the Hermès main building and saw this amazingly simple window decoration for their line of scarves. When the woman blows, the scarf billows extremely graciously. I don’t know who designed this window decoration or who the model is but I can count on one hand the times I have seen a shop window as simply beautiful as this. I think I’m in love. To me, this is the epitome of luxury and try as they might, I don’t think any major fashion brand can top this for sheer beauty in this christmas season. Pure genius.

Sorry for the poor images, it was pouring rain outside (see last image), I was on my way to a meeting (running late of course) and the glare…! The glare! D700/20mm prime. I do miss the video on my D90 when I’m out with the D700.

      Hi Jerome! Isn’t it? I never thought an old company like Hermes would be able to floor me with a window decoration for scarves.

  4. […] fantastic shop window decoration by Hermès in Ginza. Fantastic, but absolutely not sublime like this one I talked about earlier which is the best one I have ever seen. This time around Hermès’ flagship store in Ginza takes on the story of the Little Red […]
