Hermès Liat Towers reopens

Much fanfare and excitement surrounded the opening of the flagship boutique.

They say, good things come to those who wait. And at the house of Hermès, this always rings true. A case in point is the reopening of its flagship store on May 19 that had 850 special guests in attendance. Just for the event, Axel Dumas, CEO and sixth-generation Hermès family member, flew in to join the celebrations where he gave a short speech on a stage that had been constructed right outside the store’s entrance. Immediately after his address, attention was drawn to the statue of a man on a horseback that had been installed on the corner of the Hermès’ roof, which was later lit up by a display of fireworks. Guests were then invited to explore the new store — which now includes an extra level — and then enjoy a private party on level seven of Liat Towers, where the open-air car park was transformed into a dreamy party space, complete with lounge chairs under a sky of moving projections.
