hermès afterlife

Even Hermès' scraps afford an afterlife. On November 3-23 their new line, Petit H, will be on display at the Madison Avenue flagshipstore in Manhattan. From what my rusty French gathers from their website, Petit H is a sort of laboratory where leather scraps, slightly flawed tea cups and other "leftovers" are metamorphosed, turning trash into treasure. A demi-tasses' handles becomes a necklace; scraps of calfskin leather transform into a Panda...

Who would of thought you'd suddenly want a stuffed bear more than you ever wanted a Birkin?
