Last week, the timelessness of today's masculine aesthetic was celebrated by the ultimate ambassadors of haute heritage, Hèrmes of Paris, with a three-floor installation in the Moore Building in Miami's Design District. Each floor featured what can only be described as interactive art installations, each their own meditation on that beautiful idealism of evolved identity for which Hèrmes is beloved.
Véronique Nichanian, Artistic Director of the Hermès men's universe, collaborated here with artist Leandro Erlich to construct an innovative portrait of a man's world: he who is at once philosopher and fighter, a unique creature and a doppleganger of himself. An amalgam of classicism and a perfectly curated future, this Man's World is a surreal fantasy made all the more compelling in its seductive proposition as reality.
