It’s the elegant, elevated fashion brand that appeals as much to artisans and influencers as it does CEOs, rappers, and socialites – a rare breed in the style world indeed. So how appropriate, then that the newest Hermes store to open its doors in Australia, used mythical creature as the key emblem in its window display.
Hermès Australia commissioned local artist Anna-Wili Highfield to bring its new Chadstone storefront alive with a work entitled ‘Pegasus’, where the creative combined mixed metals for an abstract interpretation of the winged beast. Complete with a flying skateboard, it’s the artist’s eighth collaboration with the brand.
Hermès managing director for Australia described the decision to open the new store as “a slow burn” to the AFR, but it’s one warmly welcomed to the luxury precinct.
Spanning over 220 square-metres the retail space has been divided cleverly into three different spaces – all interconnecting for a unique customer experience. Like many of its stores, the Chadstone location offers its iconic silks along with perfume, men’s and women’s ready-to-wear collections, as well as leather, equestrian, homewares and jewellery collections.
