BLEED for Hermès Japan

  1. No, girls and boys, ladies and gents, your wallets are not the only thing bleeding for Hermès this christmas, at least not in Japan. BLEED, a graphic design studio based in norway has recently signed a contract with Hermès Japan to make the widow display. They have been in contact with Hermès for half a year already, working on prospects and suggestions for the design. Colour choices, themes and characters had to be changed and altered in the process to suit the artistic taste of the creators and the profile of the company. One of the discarded propositions included using the windows as a reversed ice skating ground, including the tracks left from the skates to be viewd from the street. There's not much to be known of the final results yet, only that there will be a masquerade and that it will be inspired by Kubrick's "Eyes wide shut".

    Before Hermès BLEED did projects for Pepsi Max, Deutsche Bank and the norwegian royal family. It's their first time collaborating with a major fashion house. Allthough they are first and foremost a graphic design studio, they devote 20% of their time to art projects for inspiration and develop the company in different directions. They have done books, installations, interior design and crafts, and use these experiences in their commercial projects.

    I'm sure it'll be a visual treat for those of you shopping in Tokyo! Hope you enjoyed this piece of Hermès news, even if it's quite unsignificant and tiny. :upsidedown: (sources: BLEED homepage (in english ) and dn.no (in norwegian >_<) )
