Haute Scene : Hermès: A Man’s World Fete

The storied French brand threw an extravaganza in the Design District’s Moore Building that will surely not be topped for a long time to come. All the heavies showed up including Craig Robins, Robert B. Chavez, President and CEO of Hermes and Men’s Artistic Director Véronique Nichanian. Artist Leandro Erlich was tapped by the fashion house to create a living and interactive world of Hermès. Lucky guests checked in and received an RFID to use before going on a journey through a series of installations that included male models outfitted in Hermès high in the rafters, playing chess in wooden elevators and on the dance floor. Aside from eye candy, guests enjoyed lobster, copious quantities of French cheese, and cured European meats.
