At Hermès, Is Less More?

-------


For his last show as creative director of Hermès—Christophe Lemaire takes the reins next season—Jean Paul Gaultier pulled out all the stops for an equestrienne extravaganza. (The designer recently admitted he can’t even ride a bicycle, much less a horse, but no matter.) And how did he kick up the luxe even further? By shrinking it down. The house’s brass-ring buy, the Birkin, was scaled down to almost gemlike proportions: It dangled off a model’s bracelet and even got toted around in a larger bag, just barely visible through a standard-size, “transparent croc” Kelly. Cute has been a keyword of Spring ’11 accessories in Europe—like the giraffe heels at Louis Vuitton and the starburst bags at Miu Miu—and here’s the latest precious addition.

    The hotel has indeed nice location and picturesque beach, but I cannot say anything else nice about this property. http://www.tsjcn-gshop.com/
