Nothing is sexier than a roomful of leather, and coupled with the fact that all the bags in said room are from Hermès means it will be a guaranteed out-of-this-world experience. What am I talking about? Well, Hermès will be kicking off its Singapore leg of their much-lauded #HermesLeatherForever exhibition this Sunday (25 October 2015) at the ArtScience Museum and from what we’ve read about it online, you’ll be seeing just about everything leather-related that has made this French luxury house famous for decades.
Running till 13 December 2015, admission is free with exhibits including an amazing display of Birkin and Kelly bags past and present, along with the inner workings of what goes on behind the scenes at the leather atelier.
But before you head to the ArtScience Museum, Hermès advises that you start your journey at the Little Room Of Wanders, an additional space set up at the Asian Civilisations Museum that will feature objects from the Emile Hermès museum in Paris’ Faubourg Saint-Honoré, an ode to the great-grandfather of current Artistic Director Pierre-Alexis Dumas. You’ll also get to see 5 specially-created Kelly Doll bags (one for each decade of Singapore’s independence) which I have a video preview of over on Facebook. For more information, including a map, please check out this link which will bring you to their official microsite set up just for this very special exhibition.
I have also have more updates before the exhibition opens to the public on Sunday, so stay tuned over on my Instagram account come Friday. So who’s ready to be immersed in experience that will tease all 4 senses? 5 if you attempt to lick the leather, that is.
