Better known internationally by his pseudonym, Kongo, French graffiti artist Cyril Phan recently joined prestigious French fashion house Hermés for the label’s latest art-driven collection. Kongo worked with the label to create “Hermés Graff by Kongo,” a rather unconventional project for the French luxury brand that encompasses a range of silk scarves embellished with lively tag-style prints and patterns. Hermés also tapped the artist to reinvent its window displays with a unique artist installation for its Passeig de Grácia branch in Barcelona. Representing a unique and rare harmony between street art and high fashion, the Hermés Graff by Kongo collection will see a Fall/Winter 2011 release with the Kongo Passeig de Grácia window installation on display from now until October 23.
