Les mondes de Leila Menchari

I have been queuing in the cold for almost an hour to enter the Hermès exhibition at Grand Palais, but it really was worth it!

Inside the building, Hermès presents 8 thematic sketches set up by the artist Leïla Menchari who was the signature of the Hermès windows between 1978 and 2013. Leïla Menchari was a storyteller of a thousand and one lives. She is a dreamer and her grandiose, exotic and generous dreams have inspired her along her career.

It was a dream come true to see these fabulous colorful sketches, all very different but all releasing  intense and powerful emotions. The only pieces I didn't like were the ones made out of animals such as fox fur throw. In 2017, it should be banned. 

Until December 3rd, 2017
Les mondes de Leïla Menchari
