Hermes: Luxury At Its Best

When it comes to ultra-refined, European luxury and elegance the brand Hermès is in an elite league of its own. Hermès is highly renowned for its bespoke handbags, luxurious silk print scarves, fashion forward apparel and precision timepieces. The brand was founded in 1837 by Thierry Hermès, who started a harness shop in the Grand Boulevards section of Paris, catering to European gentry and noblemen.

Hermès premium-crafted harness and bridle business for the carriage trade prospered. His son Charles-Emile Hermès took over the family business in 1880 and soon began to outfit the Czar of Russia with saddles. In 1914, the brand was granted the exclusive rights for the use of zippers and introduced the first leather golf jacket made expressly for Prince Edward of Wales. The zipper in France became known as the Fermeture Hermès or the Hermès Fastener.HERMES-HH1-230-284-SD
