Koto Bolofo "La Maison" Hermes Book

For the past four years, innovative fashion photographer Koto Bolofo has had behind-the-scenes access to the Hermes fashion empire. Bolofo, well-known for his portraits and fashion shoots and publishing in such prestigious periodicals as Vogue, Esquire and i-D, came to Monde d’Hermes in 2004 where he met Hermes head, Jean-Louis Dumas – one of 17 cousins who constitute the fifth generation heading the company. La Maison contains exclusive images made as Bolofo worked his way through Hermes’s workshops, discovering how their wares are made, from handbags, perfumes, scarves, pret-a-porter and shoes to the first accessory ever produced by the house: saddles. Nothing escaped his lens, not even the museum – a treasure trove of Hermes history, tucked away on Rue du Faubourg St. Honore. The release for the book is set for April 30, 2011 through Amazon, as well as other finer booksellers.
