Hermès: Festival des Métiers

Monday, May 23, 2011


















































On Sunday, I needed a break from studying for the finals and went to Brussels city to witness something extraordinary.


Hermès was having a ‘Festival of Crafts’ to show the world their craftsmanship in every detail.
It was really weird to touch every material (silk, leather) and to photograph every step that is needed to make a scarf, a handbag or a watch.


(this only a small selection of pictures, I’ll upload them on flickr too)

As you can see, I also bought a new lens (EF 50mm f/1.8 II) for my Canon. After seeing Kris Atomic beautiful pictures, I just needed a 50 mm lens…


 


I hope you enjoy these pictures as much as I do.


Love,
Sara

  33. Het hartjesjurkje heb ik helaas zo'n 4 jaar geleden in de H&M gekocht! Het is dus al een heel oud ding :-)

    Super trouwens, om zoiets als het maken van een Hermès-stuk te zien! Dan begin je te begrijpen waarom de items zo duizelingwekkend duur zijn..
