In honor of India

A fabric lover's dream, it takes five and 1/2 meters of material to make up the traditional sari, a garment still associated with weddings and important occasions even if western attire is typical for everyday wear in India. This month, Hèrmes is presenting its own version of limited edition saris in its 3 Indian stores.

This marriage of French and Indian fabric traditions was developed in Lyon under the artistic direction of Pierre-Alexis Dumas. The collection includes four silk prints: New Springs in mousseline fabric; Fleurs Indiennes in double mousseline, Coupons Indiens in cashmere and Patch in silk twill.

This is the second edition of saris produced by Hermès. The first was made in collaboration with artist Sunita Kumar in 2001 whose own sari, made of several Hermès scarves sewn together, first inspired the idea at the time.
