Held for the first time in Paris, Hermès recently celebrated their Men’s Universe on October 11 at the Palais Brongniart, a former stock exchange. The event was in acknowledgement of the French house’s burgeoning men’s sector under the artistic direction of Véronique Nichanian and Pierre-Alexis Dumas – a range that includes ready-to-wear, shoes, watches and fragrances — and was part of a larger, ongoing worldwide initiative. Consisting of the Fall/Winter 2012 ready-to-wear fashion show, along with installations, performances, a gourmet buffet, and party, the Project Paris event served to successfully showcase the diverse personalities and lifestyles of Hermès clients across the country.
