Summer 2017 Hermès Jumpsuit




Dive into summer with this stunning Hermès backless jumpsuit. Luxury fashion house Hermès has once again teamed up with South-African design brand Ardmore for their 2017 beachwear collection. The jumpsuit features the colorful 'Savana Dance' print, wide gaucho legs, a halter neck, is unlined and slips on. We're excited to see this beautiful design adapted to new Hermés products.

In 2013, luxury French brand Hermès invited South Africa’s 'Ardmore Ceramic Art' to collaborate on a series of silk scarves for its 2016 collection. Working alongside Hermès, the designs were made by Ardmore artists, including Sydney Nyabeze. Hermès proudly recognises Ardmore as a group of “creative artists dedicated to reinventing traditional styles, united by their recognition of what our common humanity and fraternity truly mean – namely that we each exist thanks to others. The carré marks the beginning of a new collaboration between the collective, and the house of Hermès.” So far 3 scarves have been released and the results are a beautiful eye-catching reflection of the ceramic brand’s distinct personality. The hand-rolled silk pieces are radiant, intricate, highly animated and proudly local, just like Ardmore’s carefully sculpted pottery. 'Flowers Of South Africa' features a pin cushion protea at its heart and is an ode to beautiful African blooms. It is Ardmore's third design for the House of Hermès, following 'The Savana Dance', where leopard, monkeys and Giant King Protea blooms (South Africa’s national flower) take centre stage, and 'La Marche du Zambezi', which is a gorgeous gathering of elephant, zebra, giraffe, crocs and leopard.

Hermès

The legendary French luxury goods house began as a harness workshop in Paris in 1837. By the twenties, Hermès had the patent for the zipper in France, and introduced the first ladies’ bags with zip closures, and in 1937, the first Hermès silk scarves were born (today, a scarf is allegedly sold every twenty seconds). The company expanded into riding gloves, belts, and men’s and women's sportswear, and designed the now-famous travel trunks to meet the needs of the new automobile drivers. The Kelly bag debuted in 1956 after Grace Kelly used a large crocodile handbag to hide her pregnancy. In the seventies, the first women's shoe collection and the first complete men's ready-to-wear collection were introduced. Actress Jane Birkin replaced her old straw purse with a leather Hermès number in 1984, and started the rage that is the Birkin bag. Today the Birkin continues to have the longest waiting list of any luxury accessory. Hermès also has a complete home line, bed and bath linens, furniture, silverware, crystal and porcelain, office accessories, and baby gifts. In 2003, following Martin Margiela, Jean-Paul Gaultier joined the house as women's ready-to-wear designer, putting a high-fashion spin on the label’s equestrian roots. After departing in May 2010, Christophe Lemaire, who is best known for reviving preppy label Lacoste, took the reigns. In June 2004, perfumer Jean-Claude Ellena took a post as the in-house perfumer and launched several scents that have amassed cultish popularity. There are over 240 Hermès boutiques internationally, including a Wall Street location, the North American flagship on Madison Avenue, and in the fall of 2009, the first menswear-only boutique right across the street.
