Singapore, October 2017 – When most people in Singapore hear of Hermès, they think about scraves and leather goods. However, the maison’s recent exhibition (Oct 7-29,2017) “Through The Walls” will surely change that impression.
This exhibition was unique as it was the first show of its kind for Hermès. The top floors of Hermès Liat Towers shop were completely changed into a scenography putting spotlight on Hermès home collection – furniture, fabrics and wallpaper.
The visuals were certainly interesting, but the sound effects were equally intriguing. I also enjoyed the origami station, where visitors were welcomed to try their hand at making the horse origami with paper printed with their wallpaper patterns.
Lastly, the two most memorable elements from this exhibition were perhaps:
The Staircase – which was covered with 7 layers of Hermès wallpaper and then ripped randomly and
Scarf Dressing Table – which was simply stunning and any scarf collector would love such an exquisite storage space for her silk and cashmere scarves.
