Hermès has collaborated with artists in their Vitrine d’Artiste edition since 2005 and this year, Edward Granger has been commissioned to design and create a series of windows themed, Flâneur Forever, (translation, forever strolling).
"With geometric shapes to layer and break apart the boundaries of the space, as well as an array of bright colors to inject warmth and dynamic presence, Granger creates a vibrancy that interprets and projects the familiar New York City rhythm onto a three-dimensional canvas. Repurposing material-concepts that are commonplace in the city—grids, fire escapes, and hand-painted walls—the new windows are just as much for the art critic as they are the casual window shopper. “I view this as being analogous to the constant pulsing energy and vibrant electricity of New York City life. The rhythmic beat of a person’s heart, or harmonics,” Wood cubes hang in the center of a rainbow gradation around Iconic leather goods suspended in a spray-painted metal structure reminiscent of a cotton candy–color Sol LeWitt." - Edward Granger
