What ties a luxury maison to a Sicilian city?
This is what I asked myself when I attended the Hermès party…
Maybe the colors, the sights, the lights of Palermo’s markets which are similar to a suk, comparable to the colors of the famous Hermès foulard?
Perhaps the creativity, crafts, or beauty …?
Friday, at the GAM (Galleria d’Arte Moderna) in Palermo, Hermès introduced “Favolosa Palermo”, a book of photographs by a Palermitan photographer Pucci Scafidi, and published by Silvana Editoriale.
Shots of places, looks, buildings, gardens, courtyards. Surely what has remained good about Palermo. A Sicilian mood strongly rooted in tradition but deeply aimed towards the future.
Even for Hermès!
A charming tradition linked to icons such as Grace Kelly who dictate style even now, and precious materials, luxury understated and never extreme.
Hermès + Palermo?
All so charming … all so contemporary!
