raw materials, heritage, and temporal ambiguity

 

The Hermès Collection Maison 2024 invites us to step out of time – while keeping our feet on the ground – and create a dialogue between roots and movement, materials and know-how. For Milan Design Week 2024, the brand reveals a new collection in tandem with heritage pieces. This pairing plays on temporal ambiguity, demonstrating that Hermès objects are unaffected by time and passing trends. Following a route on the theme of the ground, the eye is drawn to a composition of raw materials – brick, stone, slate, wood, and compacted earth – depicting a jockey’s silk jersey. A powerful symbol of the house’s cultural heritage, the jockey silk with colorful geometric motifs is an inspiration for leather goods and textiles.

For the first time, saddlery and leatherworking know-how is used to create a line of objects: The Derby blanket baskets, buckets, and table centerpieces crafted entirely from leather. Through the material, the brand explores construction, scale, color, and geometry. Strips of colored leather on both sides, pierced and stitched by hand, are coiled to form a basket, while table centerpieces in leather marquetry display graphic motifs. Meanwhile, the shape of the new Diapason d’Hermès lounge chair, which is made of leather and hammered aluminium, is radical and elegant. Created in the modernist tradition by Studio Hermès, this lounge chair combines contrasting materials with the power of formal design. Its structured look is composed of two pieces of leather forming the seat and back, which are mounted on a hammered aluminum frame.

The Hermès Collection Maison 2024 also spotlights new ethereal lamps inspired by the codes of equestrian vaulting and the delicate strokes of the Tressages Équestres dinner service, embodying lightness and refinement. The Voltige d’Hermès lamps reveal a slender stem in braided two‑tone leather, a shade in slub linen with leather piping, and a patinated base with a bronze-style finish. Understated and unique, it plays with textures, materials, and colors. A house classic, the Amalthée Myriade watch and jewelry box also make an appearance. Composed of wood and sheathed in leather on all sides, the designs come to life with ink to the leather applied freehand, tracing the myriad lines and dots with light, meticulous gestures.

Graphic, geometric, and hypnotic, a Studio Hermès creation based on a design by Jochen Gerner, the appliqué Hippique bedspread reveals a succession of small colorful flags in motifs drawn from jockeys’ silks, conveying the diversity of equestrian motifs in existence. Crafted in silk and cotton twill with tone-on-tone topstitching and a cashmere reverse, this piece of an unexpected size also flies the flag for a singular textile know-how. On the other hand, the Tartan Dye bed blanket is crafted from cloud-like, fold-dyed cashmere. The haute couture technique of fold dip-dyeing has been used to create shades of bronze and sunny yellow. Vertical and horizontal bands with a hand-painted look form a giant chequerboard pattern, complete with the resist‑dyed H signature.

Last, the Altitude cashmere blanket worked in a palette of graduated shades oozes comfort. It is hand-spun, hand-woven and hand‑dyed in Nepal. The binding is a colorful tie woven in contrasting shades. Each fringe is dyed to halfway along its length, bringing light to the naturally white cashmere.
