The Wonderful World of Hermes

When in need of inspiration, I travel through designers websites, sometimes ending up at Barneys New York and sometimes ending up at a french website for paper dolls. Today, I ended up at Hermes.

I've always loved that signature orange, and those classic stitches. But their website is actually FUN, and incredibly interesting. If you go to , click on United States and go to the "travel the world of Hermes" button, you are off on an adventurous maze. There's games, do-it-yourselfs and intimate stories from customers who have an emotional attachment to their heirloom Hermes items.

Here is a fabulous do-it-yourself bracelet (there are 6 styles and you download the pdf pattern to cut and paste together):

This particular puzzle challenges you to create different shapes and designs:

And there are also touching, beautiful stories from customers:

Here are a few of the random illustrations that really inspired me:

And then, of course, there are the scarves. Here are a few of my favorites, but honestly, it's like trying to pick your favorite pair of diamond earrings from Tiffanys.
