Hermes’ whimsical Petit H collection will soon be available in Singapore

The collection, which upcycles left over materials from the brand's workshops, will be available from Nov 22 to Dec 15.

From plastic bottles to vintage military gear, discarded objects have in recent years become a popular source of raw materials for luxury fashion brands looking to offer new products in a sustainable manner. Hermes has been doing so – with its signature playful wit, of course – since 2010 with its Petit H collection. Headed by creative director Godefroy de Virieu, the Petit H workshop transforms unwanted materials from Hermes’ other workshops into whimsical objects.

Inspired by the materials that they have on hand, artisans create delightfully random and imaginative items such as a basketball net made of colourful woven leather and a swing made of ash wood and leather. The Petit H collections travel to Hermes stores around the world two or three times a year, and now, it comes to our shores.

From Nov 22 to Dec 15, the Petit H showcase will pop up at the Hermes store at Liat Towers. Paying homage to our green city, special sets created by local industrial designer Olivia Lee will provide a backdrop for the collection, including special flora and fauna-themed objects such as fish-shaped bags and mushroom paperweights. They’re fabulous, fun and – not least of all – functional. Time for some serious Christmas shopping.
